                     Kohala Coast, Hawaii


Call for Papers

The inaugural 2017 IEEE Conference on Control Technology and  
Applications will be held on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii. This  
new conference, sponsored by the IEEE Control Systems Society with  
technical co-sponsorship through the IEEE Robotics and Automation  
Society, and organized in cooperation with the Society for Instrument  
and Control Engineers (SICE).

This new conference follows in the evolution of the former IEEE CCA to  
recent successful MSC venues, the last of which was held in 2016. The  
CCTA 2017 technical program will feature the presentation of contributed  
and invited papers, as well as tutorial sessions and workshops, focusing  
on technological advances and applications of control engineering. This  
focus includes all aspects of control engineering for practical control  
systems, from analysis and design, through simulation and hardware.  
Major themes of energy, healthcare, manufacturing, and transportation  
will feature applications of control technology for robotic, automotive,  
biomechanical, aerospace, power and energy systems, control of networks,  
and many others.

CCTA 2017 will be held at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and Bungalows on the  
Big Island of Hawaii. The venue is a medium-sized, serene property on  
the west Kohala Coast, and the organizers have negotiated reasonable  
room rates which include all resort amenities. The Big Island of Hawai’i  
offers an abundance of natural beauty and sites, with 11 of the world's  
13 climate zones. With a land mass of nearly twice the size of all other  
Hawaiian Islands combined, but with only a small fraction of the state’s  
population, its diverse terrain spans green and black sand beaches to  
lush rainforests and waterfalls, and two active volcanoes within  
Volcanoes National Park.

Call for Contributed Papers: Papers are invited in the form of regular  
manuscripts. Papers must conform to the submission policy, described  
below, requiring that all manuscripts be in 2-column format and meet  
strict page limits.

Call for Invited Sessions: Invited sessions consist of 5-6 papers  
presenting a unifying theme from a diversity of viewpoints. Proposals  
must clearly describe the motivation and relevance of the session.  
Proposals must be accompanied by full versions of each paper, which will  
be individually reviewed together with the proposal itself. Individual  
papers may be removed from a proposed session and replaced by  
appropriate contributed papers. In case an entire proposed session is  
rejected, selected papers may be accepted as contributed ones.

Call for Tutorial Sessions: Tutorial sessions and panel discussions  
addressing state-of-the-art control theory and advanced industrial  
applications are solicited.

Call for Workshops and Tutorials: Workshops and tutorials to be held  
prior to the conference are solicited on all related topics. Proposals  
for workshops addressing novel control methodologies and nonstandard  
control applications are strongly encouraged.
