2021 International Conference on Control Theory and Applications (ICoCTA 2021) will be held at Chengdu, China on Nov. 4-6, 2021.
Control theory and engineering have witnessed dramatic achievements, which have made possible space travel and communication satellites, have assisted in the design of safe and efficient aircraft, ships, trains and cars, have helped in developing cleaner chemical processes while addressing environmental concerns. Control technology constantly improves the quality of human life, as a driver of technology progress and society industrialization. Nowadays, control is more secure and more exciting than it was. The subject now seems to be morphing into the wider and more general topic of systems engineering and control, especially accompanied with emerging new technologies such as AI, 5G, edge computing etc. The topic of control theory and applications is till therefore wide open and will expand, with even greater challenges.
The International Conference on Control Theory and Applications (ICoCTA 2021) aims to bring together researchers, engineers, scientists and industry professionals in a single platform and present their stimulating research and knowledge transfer ideas in Control Theory and Applications. However, we also recognize that the future for researchers and engineers is one where they will be working in interdisciplinary teams to solve new, complex and evolving problems that will require innovative solutions. Therefore, we encourage participation of other disciplines in this conference where multidisciplinary research and knowledge transfer projects are presented.
ICoCTA 2021 will be held in Chengdu, China. The conference will start with a reception on 4 November followed by two full days of technical sessions consisting of keynote lectures, oral presentations and poster presentations. ICoCTA 2021 is organized by the Hong Kong Society of Robotics and Automation (HKSRA).
