The 2013 American Control Conference will be held Monday through Wednesday, June 17 - 19, at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel,
which is centrally located in Washington, DC, within 7 blocks of the White House, the US Capitol building, the National Mall, and the Smithsonian Institution. The hotel is also within 2 blocks of an extensive restaurant district.
The ACC is the annual conference of the American Automatic Control Council
(AACC, the U.S. national member organization of the International Federation for Automatic Control
(IFAC)). National and
international society cosponsors of ACC include American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics
(AIAA), American Institute of Chemical Engineers
(AIChE), American Society of Civil Engineers
(ASCE), American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE), International Society of Automation
(ISA), Society for Modeling & Simulation International
(SCS), and Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics
The ACC is internationally recognized as a premier scientific and engineering conference dedicated to the advancement of control theory and practice. The ACC brings together an international community of researchers and practitioners to discuss the latest findings in control research and practice.
The 2013 ACC will feature several kinds of presentations including contributed and invited papers, invited sessions, tutorial sessions, and special sessions along with workshops and exhibits. The conference will also feature theme tracks in sustainability, societal challenges for control, and smart healthcare systems.
In addition to the high-quality technical program that the 2013 ACC Organizing
Committee is working hard to ensure, the traditional conference banquet will be
transformed to an evening
at the National Air and Space Museum (NASM) on June 18, 2013.
ACC attendees and their guests will have exclusive use of the museum for the evening,
including free screenings of shows in NASM's IMAX Theater and Planetarium.
The ACC 2013 Operating Committee invites the worldwide participation of all those interested in the theory and practice of control systems.
