Sponsoring Organizations

Author Information

All conference submissions must be done through PaperPlaza and submitted by September, 30, 2015. Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend the ACC and present their work.

Contributed papers
A contributed paper is intended to be a complete description of finished work. Accepted papers are limited to 6 pages in the conference proceedings at no extra charge; up to two extra pages are allowed for a charge of USD 200 each. Note that there is no separate short paper format.

Invited Sessions
Invited session proposals should present a unified theme from diverse viewpoints. Each proposal should consist of a summary statement and six regular papers (not abstracts). The organizer notifies Contributing Authors (CAs) of their invited session code. The corresponding author of each paper submits the paper online (PDF format) as an invited paper. Submission as an invited paper requires the invited session code.

For more information on invited sessions please contact the Vice Chair for Invited Sessions: Daniel Rivera (daniel.rivera@asu.edu).

Tutorial Sessions
Tutorial Session Proposals should address the development and/or application of state-of-the-art control approaches & theory to real-world engineering applications. A typical session starts with one 40- or 60-minute talk on the underlying theory or application area. After the lead presentation, there are usually several 20-minute talks highlighting particular aspects or applications of the topic area in further detail.

For more information on industry & application tutorial sessions please the Vice Chair for Industry & Application: Aranya Chakrabortty (achakra2@ncsu.edu).

Special Sessions
A brief description of the session, indicating the topic(s) to be covered and who will be making presentations in the session, should be submitted electronically (through PaperPlaza). Special sessions usually do not include presentations of papers that are peer-reviewed and included in the conference proceedings.

For more information, or to discuss possible special session topics, please contact the Vice Chair for Special Sessions: Kristi Morgansen (morgansen@aa.washington.edu).

Application Friday (AF) Tutorial Sessions
As part of an extended outreach effort to the local community, Applications Friday will feature special Applications Tutorial sessions in the afternoon. The Applications Tutorials will be geared towards an audience of local practicing engineers and scientists, as opposed to more typical ACC attendees.  Reviews will be done in a similar fashion to the Tutorial sessions, but extra emphasis will be given on clarity of explanation and practical applicability of the material to the above audience. Applications Tutorial session proposals (extended abstract & paper outline) are due November 2, 2015. Submission should be done through PaperPlaza. More information on the intent, audience, and requirements for submissions are found at http://acc2016.a2c2.org/apps_friday.html.

For more information, or to discuss possible AF tutorial session topics, please contact Aranya Chakrabortty (achakra2@ncsu.edu).

    For initial submissions, all regular and invited papers are limited to eight (8) pages. PaperPlaza will not permit longer papers to be uploaded.

    At least one of the authors listed on the paper must register for ACC 2016 at the full member/non-member rate to upload the final manuscript. A maximum of 4 papers can be uploaded with a single registration. Additional uploads on the same registration will require a payment of USD 200 per paper.

    Please consider submitting your paper early and ensuring your paper satisfies the PDF check. Revised versions of papers can be resubmitted up until the deadline. No extensions of the deadline are foreseen.
