The conference focuses on theories, applications and developments in control related research fields, covering three major topics: computers for control, computational intelligence in control and control via communication networks. Computers for control considers a broad range of computer-based control systems, spanning from system architectures, inter-computer communications, man-machine interfaces for real-time distributed computer control systems to programmable logic controllers, Fieldbus and standards-based platforms and environments, etc. Computational intelligence in control focuses on all aspects of knowledge-based, fuzzy, neuro-fuzzy and neural (both artificial and biologically plausible) systems and evolutionary algorithms relevant to control, both theoretical and application driven. Control via communication networks encourages topics of computerized and telecommunication based automation systems, providing services to remote equipment. This addresses systems integrating methods of remote control, cooperative communication for remote applications, and remote sensor data acquisition.
