Call for Papers


The 15th IEEE International Conference on Control and Automation (IEEE ICCA 2019) will be held Tuesday through Friday, July 16-19, 2019, in Edinburgh, Scotland. The conference is jointly organized by IEEE Control Systems Chapter, Singapore, and IEEE Control Chapter for United Kingdom and Ireland. It is technically sponsored by IEEE Control Systems Society. It aims to create a forum for scientists and practising engineers throughout the world to present the latest research findings and ideas in the areas of control and automation, and possible contributions toward sustainable development and environment preservation. The conference is featured with the Best Paper Award and the Best Student Paper Award.

The conference will be held in Edinburgh which has been recognised as the capital of Scotland since at least the 15th century. Edinburgh is Scotland's second most populous city and the seventh most populous in the United Kingdom. It is the second largest financial centre in the United Kingdom (after London) and the city's historical and cultural attractions have made it the United Kingdom's second most popular tourist destination, attracting over one million overseas visitors each year.
