2000 ACC 2000 American Control Conference
( http://che.vill.edu/acc2000/acc.html)

The American Automatic Control Council (AACC) will hold the nineteenth American Control Conference (ACC) June 28-30, 2000 at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, IL. This conference will bring together people working in the fields of control, automation, and related areas. The 2000 ACC will cover a range of topics relevant to theory and practical implementation of control and automation. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: industrial applications, robotics, manufacturing, guidance and flight control, power systems, process control, multivariable control, adaptive and optimal control, robustness, measurement and sensing, signal processing, identification and estimation, modeling and advanced simulation, fault detection, model validation, intelligent control, expert systems, neural nets, control engineering education, and computer aided design. Since we are moving into the 21st century, there will be sessions providing historical perspectives on the development of automatic controls as a discipline in the 20th century.

The AACC is particularly interested in enhancing the applications and industrial perspective of the ACC. Accordingly, the 2000 ACC will include Tutorial Sessions that feature a detailed introduction to an industrially-proven, but still relatively new, technique followed by a series of short presentations from industrial participants discussing the implementation, application, and benefits of the technique.

While the deadline for contributed papers and invited and tutorial sessions has passed, we invite you to find out more about the 2000 ACC and hope that you will attend next June. Further information can be obtained from the 2000 ACC web page or by contacting
