Welcome to ICSTCC 2014
The International Conference on System Theory, Control and Computing ICSTCC 2014 aims at bringing together under a unique forum, scientists from academia and industry to discuss the state of the art and the new trends in system theory, control and computer engineering, and to present recent research results and prospects for development in this rapidly evolving area.
The conference will be for the fifth time organized in this format, joining three previous different scientific meetings:
- SINTES - International Conference on System Theory and Control, organized by the University of Craiova, Faculty of Automation, Computers and Electronics,
- SACCS - International Symposium on Automatic Control and Computer Science), organized by the "Gheorghe Asachi" Technical University of Iasi, Faculty of Automatic Control and Computer Engineering,
- SIMSIS - International Symposium on Modelling, Simulation and Identification Systems, organized by the "Dunarea de Jos" University of Galati, Faculty of Automatic Control, Computers, Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
Starting from 2010, all the editions have been technically co-sponsored by IEEE Control Systems Society. The Proceedings of the last three editions are included in IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Moreover, the Proceedings of ICSTCC 2013 are indexed in ISI Web Of Science.
ICSTCC 2014 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Control Systems Society (see here). The Proceedings will be published in IEEE Xplore Digital Library and will be submitted to ISI Web Of Science.
