The 51st IEEE Conference on Decision and Control
will be held Monday through Thursday,
December 10-13, 2012 at the
Maui, Hawaii. The conference will be followed by technical
workshops on Friday, December 14, 2012.
The CDC is recognized as the premier scientific and engineering conference dedicated to the
advancement of the theory and practice of systems and control. The CDC annually brings together
an international community of researchers and practitioners in the field of automatic control to
discuss new research results, perspectives on future developments, and innovative applications
relevant to decision making, automatic control, and related areas.
The 51st CDC will feature contributed and invited papers, as well as tutorial
sessions and workshops.
The IEEE CDC is hosted by the IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS) 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).
Maui, the Valley Isle, is the second largest island in the Hawaiian chain, providing
cultures, climates, and landscapes: from the black, white, red, and gold sand beaches to the
pastoral village of Heavenly Hana, to the soaring sea cliffs and seven sacred pools. The Grand
Wailea is located on Maui's sunny south shore. The hotel offers state of the art meeting
facilities, spans over 40 acres, and has a prime oceanfront location on spectacular Wailea Beach.
Wailea beach is famous for calm clear blue water, miles of beach front walking, and whale
watching. While at the conference, enjoy the distinctive restaurants, art collection, tropical
gardens, swimming pools and waterfalls. Dining choices are available on site, at several nearby
hotels, at the adjacent Wailea Shopping Center and in Kihei.
