Dear all,

The 24th Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation, MED'16, is returning to Athens, Greece, and the luxurious Divani Caravel Hotel (http://www.divanicaravel.gr <http://www.divanicaravel.gr/>). Athens is a metropolitan and cosmopolitan city, the capital of Greece, the birth place of Democracy, the city with the worldwide known “Acropolis and Parthenon”, with the world famous Theater of Herodes Atticus and the marble stadium where the first modern times Olympic Games took place in 1896, home of Socrates, Plato, Pericles (Golden Age), and home of the 2004 Olympic Games. Athens is both an “ancient” and a “modern” city, in which visitors can walk safely and enjoy the rich, almost 5,000 year old, history it has to offer.

For information about Greece, see: www.visitgreece.gr <http://www.visitgreece.gr/> or http://greeklandscapes.com <http://greeklandscapes.com/>.

The theme of MED’16 centers on control and automation challenges and opportunities in the 21st century and on control of autonomous systems. MED’16 spans four full days. June 21 is devoted to Tutorials and Workshops, followed by the three day technical conference on June 22-24. The conference, through its technical program and keynote presentations, will provide a unique opportunity for the academic, research and industrial community to address new challenges, share solutions and discuss future research directions. A broad range of topics is proposed, following current trends of combining control and systems theory with hardware/software and communication technologies, as well as new developments in robotics and mechatronics, autonomous systems, unmanned systems, cyber physical systems, network controlled systems, with the goal of strengthening cooperation of control and automation scientists with industry.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Adaptive Control, Aerospace Control, Agents/Agent-based Systems, Autonomous Systems, Autonomy, Biologically Inspired Systems, Computational Intelligence, Computer Aided Control System Design, Computer Controlled, Systems, Communication Systems, Cooperative Systems Control, Cyber Physical Systems, Decentralized Control, Digital Control Systems, Discrete Event Dynamic Systems, Distributed Parameter Systems, Disturbance Rejection, Education and Training, Embedded Control Systems, Energy Efficient Systems, Event-Based Systems, Fault-tolerant Control, Formation Control, Fuzzy Logic and Fuzzy Control, Genetic and Evolutionary Computation, Hybrid Systems, Image Processing, Industrial Automation, Manufacturing, Integrated Control and Diagnostics, Intelligent Control, Intelligent Transportation Systems, Linear Systems, Marine Control, Mechatronic Systems, Modeling and Simulation, Network Controlled Systems, Neural Networks, Non-linear Systems, Optimization, Petri Nets, Power Systems, Predictive control, Process control, Prognostics and Diagnostics, Real-time Control, Robotics, Robotic Teams, Robust Control, SmartGrid, Soft Computing, Spectral Estimation, Swarms, System Identification, Uncertain Systems, Unmanned Systems, Verification and Validation, Virtual and Augmented Reality.
