Call for Papers


The 14th IEEE International Conference on Control and Automation (IEEE ICCA 2018) will be held on June 12–15, 2018, in Sheraton Anchorage Hotel, Anchorage, Alaska, USA. The event is jointly organized by the IEEE Control Systems Chapter, Singapore, and the IEEE Victoria Section, Canada, and technically sponsored by IEEE Control Systems Society. It is to create a forum for scientists and practicing engineers throughout the world to present the latest research findings and ideas in the areas of control and automation. The conference is featured with the Best Paper Award and the Best Student Paper Award.

The conference will be held in Anchorage, a beautiful city in Alaska, USA, where you can meet a moose, walk on a glacier and explore a vast, natural park all in a single day. Between snow mountains and an inlet, surrounded by national parks and filled with Alaska wildlife, Anchorage combines the best of Alaska in a city that has the comforts of home and the hospitality of the Last Frontier.
