Marriott Marquis Hotel at Times Square
New York City, USA
July 11-13, 2007
|The American Automatic Control Council (AACC) will hold the 26th American
Control Conference (ACC) Wednesday through Friday, July 11 to 13, 2007 at
the Marriott Marquis Hotel at Times Square in New York City, USA. The ACC is
an annual, 3-day event, presenting about 900 papers, with over 1200
participants from the measurement and automation communities.Presentations
are selected through a review process and issued in the proceedings.This
premier conference and associated workshops (two additional days before the
conference drawing approximately 200 participants) focus on advances in the
theory and practice associated with automatic control.
Held in cooperation with the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC), the ACC brings together people working in the fields of control, automation, and related areas from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), Association of Iron and Steel Technology (AIST), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), International Society for Measurement and Control (ISA), and the Society for Computer Simulation (SCS).
The 2007 ACC will feature the presentation of contributed and invited papers, as well as tutorial sessions and workshops. In addition to the standard oral presentations, the 2007 ACC will also feature interactive presentations which will provide active exchange with the audience. Topics for the interactive sessions will be selected specifically to benefit from the time for interaction and discussion that are not available in a typical oral session, and the authors will be encouraged to make creative use of poster boards as well as hands-on computer simulations and demonstrations. The conference will cover a broad range of topics relevant to the theory and practice of control and automation, including robotics, manufacturing, guidance and control, power systems, process control, identification and estimation, signal processing, modeling and advanced simulation, model validation, fault detection, multivariable control, adaptive control, robust control, intelligent control, expert systems, neural networks, industrial applications of advanced control, control engineering education, and computer-aided design.
The Marriott Marquis Hotel, overlooking Times Square, is located in the heart of New York City's Theater District. Studios for CNN, Fox, ESPN and MTV are nearby. There are many restaurants within walking distance, a short cab or subway ride away, to appeal to every taste and price range. Central Park is one-half mile north of the conference site. Also within a short distance of the hotel are Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Natural History, the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Stroll Fifth Avenue and window shop some of the world's most exclusive stores or visit the diamond center along 45th-47th streets. Off the southern tip of Manhattan are the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island with its interactive Museum of Immigration. Construction of the 1,776 foot Freedom Tower on the former site of the World Trade Center will be well underway at the time of the conference.

|Call For Papers|
* Note: There will be no further extension on this deadline.
Contributed papers will be classified as regular or short. Regular papers are intended to be a complete description of finished work. Short papers are intended to be an exposition of a novel idea or preliminary results.
Invited session proposals should present a unifying theme from a diversity of viewpoints and consist of a summary statement and six full papers.
Special session proposals are invited for traditional special sessions and a new “demonstration session.” Authors submitting papers in regular or invited sessions may simultaneously submit proposals to demonstrate their results after their talks in a special interactive demonstration session.
Tutorial sessions should address state-of-the-art control theory and industrial applications.
Pre-conference workshop proposals addressing tutorial topics or current important research areas in control are invited.
Exhibits related to the theory and practice of control and control education are invited.
Theme Topics: In addition to traditional topics, the 2007 ACC is encouraging submissions in these conference themes:
Please consider submitting a paper, invited session, tutorial session, workshop or special session in one of these theme areas.
Student Best Paper Award
The 2007 ACC is pleased to annouce a Student Best Paper Award: All primary, first-listed authors of a regular contributed paper who were students at the time of submission are eligible. Up to five finalists will be awarded limited travel reimbursements to the conference based on their contributed paper. The finalists are required to present their paper at the conference to receive the award. To nominate a paper for the competition, the faculty adviser should submit a one page recommendation letter through paper plaza. The recommendation letter should clearly state the unique contributions of the paper and the student's role in their development.
The deadline for the nomination letter is October 13. For more information, contact the Vice Chair for Student Affairs.
