Response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

[To the participants of MSCS/ISCS2020]

Although there is a concern about the novel coronavirus infection, MSCS/ISCS2020 is scheduled to be held considering the infection control policy of the Japanese government as of February 21. If the infection situation changes in the future, we may cancel MSCS/ISCS2020. Please pay close attention to the official website of ISCS2020.

  • If you have symptoms such as fever, please refrain from coming to the symposium site.
  • If you suspect to be infected with the novel coronavirus, please refrain from coming to the symposium site.
  • Please note that the symposium staffs may wear masks to prevent infections.
  • We recommend that you wear a mask and use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when you stay at the symposium site. We kindly ask for your cooperation for infection prevention measures.
  • If you have traveled to China within two weeks prior to MSCS/ISCS2020, or if you have been in close contact with a person infected with the novel coronavirus or a person who has a high probability of being infected, please let the MSCS/ISCS committee know in advance.
  • The banquet (technical exchange meeting) is canceled. We will refund the full amount of the banquet fee. We will email this to the participants who have already paid the banquet fee.

We would appreciate your understanding.

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.
