Invitation to the 51st IEEE Conference on Decision and Control

The 51st IEEE Conference on Decision and Control will be held Monday through Thursday, December 10-13, 2012 at the Grand Wailea, Maui, Hawaii. The conference will be followed by technical workshops on Friday, December 14, 2012.

The CDC is recognized as the premier scientific and engineering conference dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practice of systems and control. The CDC annually brings together an international community of researchers and practitioners in the field of automatic control to discuss new research results, perspectives on future developments, and innovative applications relevant to decision making, automatic control, and related areas.

The 51st CDC will feature contributed and invited papers, as well as tutorial sessions and workshops.

The IEEE CDC is hosted by the IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS) in cooperation with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), the Japanese Society for Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE), and the European Union Control Association (EUCA).

Maui, the Valley Isle, is the second largest island in the Hawaiian chain, providing diverse cultures, climates, and landscapes: from the black, white, red, and gold sand beaches to the pastoral village of Heavenly Hana, to the soaring sea cliffs and seven sacred pools. The Grand Wailea is located on Maui's sunny south shore. The hotel offers state of the art meeting facilities, spans over 40 acres, and has a prime oceanfront location on spectacular Wailea Beach. Wailea beach is famous for calm clear blue water, miles of beach front walking, and whale watching. While at the conference, enjoy the distinctive restaurants, art collection, tropical gardens, swimming pools and waterfalls. Dining choices are available on site, at several nearby hotels, at the adjacent Wailea Shopping Center and in Kihei.
