Submission of papers and invited session proposals is sought for the 52nd Conference on Decision and Control, to be held in Florence, Italy, on December 10-13, 2013. All submitted material must be in English, which is the sole conference language.
All papers (including invited-session papers) and session proposals must be submitted electronically through PaperPlaza. In accordance with IEEE requirements, only PDF files can be accepted. All manuscripts must be in two-column format, 10-point font size, with one-inch margins on all sides. Latex and MS-Word style files are made available to authors for their convenience. See CDC 2013 submission instructions for details.
In their initial submission form, manuscripts may be up to eight (8) pages long. However, at final submission time for accepted papers, the regular length for manuscripts is limited to six (6) pages. At that time, papers up to eight (8) pages long may be submitted upon payment of over-length page charges of 175 EUR for each page in excess of six.
Invited sessions consist of six papers presenting a unifying theme of interest to the conference attendees from a diversity of viewpoints. Proposals for such sessions must clearly describe the motivation and relevance of the session. They must also include short descriptions of the six component papers, with indication of the relationship of each one to the theme. Note that the deadline for proposals is set to March 4, one week in advance of the deadline for the component papers; proposals deemed not sufficiently convincing are subject to early rejection. The component papers must be submitted separately, in their full form (abstracts are not accepted), by the respective authors; see the submission instructions. Each paper in a proposed invited session will be individually reviewed and rated. Rejected papers submitted as part of invited sessions otherwise deemed acceptable will be removed and appropriate contributed papers will be substituted, at the discretion of the Program Committee. Likewise, selected papers from rejected invited sessions may be placed into other sessions. Further exchanges may be made, to ensure coherence of the sessions, at the discretion of the Program Committee.
