San Francisco, California, USA
June 29 - July 1, 2011
Greetings from The
On behalf of ACC Organizing
Committee, I am pleased to welcome you to the 2011 ACC that will be held in
San Francisco at the downtown Hilton Hotel.
It has been over a decade since ACC was held in
The ACC is the premier automatic control
technical conference held in the United States for over 50 years.
We welcome those colleagues, friends and
contributors from abroad whose participation significantly enhances the ACC.
San Francisco is a world class city that is
renowned for the diversity of its culture.
It is home to historic Chinatown, the lively
Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Chocolate, and to over 3,000 restaurants.
The views of the Bridge, the Bay, and the local
Victorian neighborhoods with the well-known cable cars cannot be matched. A
visit to the "city by the bay" is always an exciting and unique experience.
The ACC is held in cooperation with the International Federation
of Automatic Controls (IFAC) and is sponsored by the ACC's eight
member societies: AIAA, AIChE, SIAM, ASCE, IEEE, ASME, ISA, and
SCS. Volunteers from these societies form the backbone of
the AACC and ACC, and their efforts have allowed the
organization and conference to flourish over the years.
ACC is a conference that provides a forum for bringing
industry and academia together to discuss the latest developments in the
area of Automatic Control Systems, from new control theories, to the
advances in sensors and actuator technologies, and to new applications areas
for automation. The 2011 ACC will focus on three themes:
- Health Care
Therefore, papers, plenary and semi-plenary speeches,
special sessions and panel discussions, with their focus on these three
themes, are being organized and prepared for the 2011 ACC. I welcome
any ideas you may have for enhancing the quality and goals of the 2011 ACC.
Especially, I encourage you to organize special sessions, and make technical
contributions related to the themes of this conference. The ACC is an
all-volunteer conference. Every year many of our colleagues and
friends volunteer their time to contribute to the common goal, to make the
ACC a successful conference. This year is no exception. We have
an outstanding Organizing Committee and Program Committee. Together,
they are preparing an excellent technical program.
I express my sincere gratitude to all members of the
Organizing Committee who are spending countless hours to organize the
conference activities while engaged in their full-time positions:
Faryar Jabbari (Program Chair), George Chiu (Finance), Maryam Khanbaghi
(Local Arrangements) Jeannie Falcon (Exhibits), John Wagner (Student
Affairs), Jurek Sasiadek (Invited Sessions), Farshad Khorrami (Industry &
Application Sessions), Martha Grover (Publication), Mayuresh Kothare
(Registration), John Wen (Special Sessions), Mehdi Ahmadian (Publicity),

Again, welcome and thank you for your contributions to
the 2011 ACC. We hope you will join us in San Francisco to enjoy a
beautiful city and an exciting conference, with the technical program,
events, and opportunities to meet old and new friends.
