3rd International Conference on Informatics in Control, Automation and 
Robotics, Steubal Portugal, 1-5 August, 2006.

Full Paper Submission: 27th February, 2006
Authors Notification: 17th April, 2006
Final Paper Submission and Registration: 8th May, 2006

ICINCO is organized by INSTICC - Institute for Systems and Technologies 
of Information, Control and Communication.


The purpose of the 3rd International Conference on Informatics in 
Control, Automation and Robotics (ICINCO) is to bring together 
researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in the application 
of informatics to Control, Automation and Robotics. Three simultaneous 
tracks will be held, covering Intelligent Control Systems, Optimization, 
Robotics, Automation, Signal Processing, Systems Modeling and Control.

Informatics applications are pervasive in many areas of Control, 
Automation and Robotics; This conference intends to emphasize this 
connection, therefore, authors should highlight the benefits of 
Information Technology (IT) in these areas. Ideas on how to solve 
problems using IT, both in R&D and industrial applications, are welcome. 
Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and 
general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. 
Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed 
below. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the 
authors, will be published in the Proceedings of ICINCO, with an ISBN. 
Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Both 
full research reports and work-in-progress reports are welcome. There 
will be both oral and poster sessions.

Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial 
presentations, as well as tutorials dedicated to technical/scientific 
topics are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their 
products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial 
or organizing a workshop are invited to contact the conference 
secretariat. Additional information can be found at http://www.icinco.org/.


Each of these topic areas is expanded below but the sub-topics list is 
not exhaustive. Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics, 
although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related 
sub-topics are also acceptable, provided they fit in one of the 
following conference areas:

There is an open invitation to submit special sessions proposals. Please 
see details on how to submit a special session proposal at 


International Workshop on Multi-Agent Robotic Systems (MARS 2006)
International Workshop on Artificial Neural Networks and Intelligent 
Information Processing (ANNIIP 2006)
International Workshop on Biosignal Processing and Classification (BPC 2006)


Authors should submit a paper in English of up to 8 A4 pages, carefully 
checked for correct grammar and spelling, using the on-line submission 
procedure indicated below.
The guidelines for paper formatting provided at the conference web site 
must be strictly used for all submitted papers. The submission format is 
the same as the camera-ready format. Please check and carefully follow 
the instructions and templates provided.
The program committee will review all papers and the contact author (the 
author who submits the paper) of each paper will be notified of the 
result, by e-mail.
Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its 
technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or 
environments to which it is applicable.

Submission procedure:
A "double-blind" paper evaluation method will be used. To facilitate 
that, the authors are kindly requested to produce and provide the full 
paper, WITHOUT any reference to any of the authors. The manuscript must 
contain, in its first page, the paper title, an abstract and a list of 
keywords but NO NAMES OR CONTACT DETAILS WHATSOEVER are to be included 
in any part of this file.
The web submission facility automatically sends an acknowledgement, by 
e-mail, to the contact author. Please contact the secretariat if no 
acknowledgement is received.

If the author is unable to use the web-based procedure then he/she can 
send the paper by e-mail to the secretariat attaching an additional file 
containing: the title, author(s), affiliation(s), contact details, a 
list of keywords and an abstract. Authors must also indicate the 
conference area (including the topics) or the workshop, to which the 
paper is submitted.


All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, 
under an ISBN reference, in paper and in CD-ROM support. A book 
including a selection of the best conference papers will be edited and 
published by Springer.
The International journal Integrated Computer-Aided Engineering and the 
International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems will also publish a 
selection of ICINCO 2006 best papers.

The conference will be held in the campus of the Polytechnic Institute 
of Setúbal. With five Schools, the Institute has excellent conditions 
for holding conferences, including several 100-seat lecture theatres and 
one fully equipped 350-seat auditorium.
Setúbal, a city with about 75,000 inhabitants, sits by the Atlantic 
Ocean and on the right edge of the Sado River, in front of Tróia, 
approximately 50 km to the south of the Portuguese capital - Lisboa - 
where the nearest airport is located. Setúbal offers its visitors an 
unforgettable environment: Dauphins and other ocean life, monuments and 
flaring landscapes are conjugated with an important industrial 
implantation. The visitor can find anything from ancient historical 
areas, in Palmela, to pleasurable beaches and modern golf courses, in 
Troia. It is also possible to make a break after the conference, in 
Algarve, less than two hours away from the conference site by car.
