Invitation to the 52nd IEEE Conference on Decision and Control

The 52nd IEEE Conference on Decision and Control will be held Tuesday through Friday, December 10-13, 2013 at Palazzo dei Congressi, Florence, Italy. Pre-conference Workshops will be held on Monday December 9, 2013.

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, systems and control, and related areas.

The 52nd CDC will feature contributed and invited papers, as well as workshops, and may also include tutorial sessions.

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 of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE), and the European Control Association (EUCA).

Florence, an open-air museum. The historic centre of Florence contains such a wealth of masterpieces that it is difficult to separate the city from its artworks. In 1982 it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the motivation being that it encapsulates the whole history of the city, from the "Roman Quadrilateral" in the Piazza della Repubblica area to the narrow streets of the medieval center, the splendours of the 16th-century Pitti Palace and the changes wrought at the time when Florence was the capital of Italy. With its extraordinarily beautiful churches, its museums and art collections, historic gardens, piazzas, streets and ancient palaces, Florence can justifiably be defined as an "open-air museum" - not simply a container for artworks but a work of art in its own right.
