Invitation to the 45th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control
The 45th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control will be held Wednesday through Friday, December 13-15, 2006 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Diego, California USA. The conference will be preceded by technical workshops on December 11-12, 2005.
The CDC annually brings together an international community of researchers and practitioners in the field of automatic control to discuss the latest advancements of the discipline, shape its future directions, and promote its diffusion among the scientific community at large.
The 45th CDC will feature the presentation of contributed and invited papers, as well as tutorial sessions and workshops. In addition to the standard oral presentations, the conference will also feature interactive presentations and demonstrations, in order to encourage an interaction exchange with the audience. Topics for the interactive sessions will be selected specifically to benefit from the time for interaction and discussion that are not available in a typical lecture session, and the authors will be encouraged to make creative use of poster boards as well as hands-on computer simulations and demonstrations.
The 45th CDC will introduce a new invited session category: "Invited Interactive Sessions." In addition to regular invited sessions, proposals are sought from those wishing to organize an "invited interactive session." An invited interactive session will consist of between ten (10) to fifteen (15) papers, which should present a unifying theme from a diversity of viewpoints. The arrangements and rules governing Invited Interactive sessions are similar to regular invited sessions, with the following notes: As with regular invited sessions, all papers will be reviewed, and appear in the proceedings. Presentations will be interactive (i.e. poster, plus preferably some sort of simulation or software demonstration). In addition, at the start of a session the organizers will make an overview presentation lasting 15-20 minutes. The sessions can contain up to 15 presentations (this leaves much more flexibility than requiring exactly 6 presentations to fit the timing requirements of oral sessions). Each Invited Interactive Session accepted will have a room devoted to the session, including data projection for the overview. The deadline for submissions for invited interactive sessions will be later than for regular submission and is set to March 17, 2006.
The CDC is hosted by the IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS), and is organized in cooperation with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), the Japanese Society for Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE), and the European Union Control Association (EUCA).
San Diego is California's second largest city, blessed by an ideal climate, miles of pristine beaches, and unique world-class attractions, including Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, and Sea World.
