Call for Papers

The SICE International Symposium on Control Systems (ISCS) is an event launched in 2015 by the Control Division of the Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE). The ISCS provides an opportunity of international interactions among researchers, students, and engineers who are working on various aspects of control systems, from theory to application.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Linear Systems; Nonlinear Systems; Robust Control; Optimal Control; Model Predictive Control; Hybrid Systems; Networked Control Systems; Adaptive Control; Intelligent Control; Computational Methods; Modeling, System Identification and Estimation; Process Control; Mechanical Systems Control; Automotive Control; Guidance and Flight Control; Control Applications

The SICE ISCS 2020 will take place as a part of the 7th SICE Multi-symposium on Control Systems (MSCS 2020) [Web (in Japanese)], which will be held March 3-5, 2020 at Tokushima University, Tokushima, Japan.

The SICE ISCS 2020 invites you to submit contributed papers. We provide you with two categories of paper submissions: regular papers and position papers. The former is a full contributed paper of a completed work, while the latter is aimed for a timely review of research, a case study, a technical discussion, and so forth. The papers will be peer-reviewed. Regular papers will be included to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. See Paper Submission for more detail. The accepted papers will be assigned to oral sessions in English. Please note that at least one of the authors of each accepted paper is expected to attend the symposium to present their work.
