The 3rd IFAC International Conference on Intelligent Control and Automation
Science (ICONS 2013), September 2-4, 2013, Chengdu, China,

Sponsored and Organized by:
University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC)
International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) Technical Committee:
3.2 Cognition and Control

The ICONS serves as a platform for scientists, researchers, and
practitioners to discuss their forefront research results and findings, to
shape their future directions and development, and to exchange their
knowledge and perspectives in the field of intelligent control, automation
science, engineering, and integration into the industry and society. It
constitutes the primary forum for cross-industry, multidisciplinary
research, and provides an opportunity to have a unique and rich cultural
experience with excellent technical and social programs.
