ACC '00 Call For Papers 2000 American Control Conference
Call for Papers

The AACC will hold the 19th ACC June 28-30, 2000 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Chicago, Illinois. Papers relevant to the theory and practical implementation of control and automation are being solicited for the 2000 ACC. Since we are moving into the 21st century, invited sessions and contributed papers providing historical perspectives on the development of automatic controls as a discipline in the 20th century are particularly encouraged.

Contributed Papers: Prospective authors of regular papers must submit five copies of the manuscript and a Manuscript Submission Form (MSF) to the appropriate Society Review Chair. For short papers, five copies of the manuscript along with a MSF must be submitted to the Program Vice-Chair for Contributed Papers.

Invited Sessions: Potential organizers of invited sessions should submit five copies of the session proposal, including a clear summary and motivation for the session, with a 1000 word summary of each paper, along with a single Invited Session Form and one MSF for each summary in the session, to the Program Vice-Chair for Invited Sessions.

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. For more information, contact the Vice Chair for Industry and Applications.
