About CACS2018

 The 2018 International Automatic Control Conference (CACS 2018) is an international conference hosted by the Chinese Automatic Control Society and National Central University, Taiwan. This four-day conference will take place in South Garden Hotels and Resorts, Taoyuan, Taiwan, over Nov. 4 ~ 7, 2018, and present more than 200 papers submitted worldwide. This event will provide a great opportunity for scientists, engineers, and practitioners to present the latest design concepts, research results, developments, and applications, as well as to facilitate interactions between scholars and practitioners. Submission of papers with new research results in all aspects of control and automation are encouraged.
