Call for Papers

The SICE International Symposium on Control Systems (ISCS) is an event launched in 2015 by the Control Division of the Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE). The ISCS provides an opportunity of international interactions among researchers, students, and engineers who are working on various aspects of control systems, from theory to application.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Linear Systems; Nonlinear Systems; Robust Control; Optimal Control; Model Predictive Control; Hybrid Systems; Networked Control Systems; Adaptive Control; Intelligent Control; Computational Methods; Modeling, System Identification and Estimation; Process Control; Mechanical Systems Control; Automotive Control; Guidance and Flight Control; Control Applications

The SICE ISCS 2023 will take place as a part of the 10th SICE Multi-symposium on Control Systems (MSCS 2023). The whole symposium is planned to be held in a traditional in-person style after four years. It should make possible a close and fruitful discussion. The venue is a beautiful Biwako-Kusatsu Campus of the Ritsumeikan University not far from Kyoto. The stay there is another attractive feature of the symposium.

The SICE ISCS 2023 invites you to submit contributed papers. We provide you with two categories of paper submissions: regular papers and position papers. The former is a full contributed paper of a completed work, while the latter is aimed for a timely review of research, a case study, a technical discussion, and so forth. The papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted regular papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements. See Paper Submission for more detail.

The accepted papers will be assigned to oral sessions in English. Please note that at least one of the authors of each accepted paper is expected to attend the symposium to present their work.
