ACC '01 Call For Papers 2001 American Control Conference
Call for Papers

The AACC will hold the 20th ACC June 25-27, 2001 (Monday through Wednesday) at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA, just outside the US Capitol city of Washington, D.C. Papers relevant to the theory and practical implementation of control and automation are being solicited for the 2001 ACC. Since we are entering the 21st century, invited sessions and contributed papers providing perspectives and outlooks on the development of automatic controls as a discipline are particularly encouraged.

Contributed Papers: Prospective authors of regular papers must submit their manuscripts to the appropriate Society Review Chair. Authors of short papers should submit their manuscripts to the Vice-Chair for Contributed Papers.

Invited Sessions: Prospective organizers of invited sessions should submit a session proposal to the Vice-Chair for Invited Sessions, including a clear summary and motivation for the session along with a 1000-word summary of each paper.

Industry and Applications: The AACC is particularly interested in enhancing the applications and industrial perspective of the ACC. Prospective authors from industry are encouraged to submit manuscripts. Proposals for Tutorial Sessions aimed at integrating practice and theory are also sought. For more information contact the Vice Chair for Industry and Applications.

Consult the web site for specific details on the electronic submission of Contributed Papers as well as proposals for Invited Sessions, Tutorial Sessions, and Workshops.
