The 23rd IEEE International Symposium on Intelligent Control (ISIC), together with the 17th IEEE International Conference on Control Applications (CCA) and the 9th International Symposium on Computer-Aided Control System Design (CACSD), will take place jointly within the 2nd IEEE Multi-conference on Systems and Control, at the Hilton Palacio del Rio Hotel in San Antonio, Texas (USA) from 3 to 5 September 2008.

The 23rd IEEE International Symposium on Intelligent Control provides a forum for the international community of academic and industrial researchers to discuss  recent advancements in intelligent control, including innovative control algorithms and computational intelligence methodologies that enable systems to act appropriately in uncertain environments, ensuring that high performance can be achieved and maintained under adverse conditions. The symposium's focus is on techniques that respond to the current technological demand for highly sophisticated controllers for complex systems, which cannot be met by conventional approaches to control.

The conference welcomes paper submissions from researchers, practitioners and students, and will cover many topics in intelligent control, including, but not limited to the following:

Autonomous Systems

Robotics and unmanned systems; intelligent behavior generation; architectures for autonomy; autonomous manufacturing and industrial systems; planning and decision-making for autonomy; cooperative autonomous systems.

Architecture and Software for Intelligent Control

Next generation intelligent control architectures and methods; distributed embedded systems; embedded intelligent controllers.

Computational Intelligence Methods

Neural networks; fuzzy systems; genetic algorithms; probabilistic approaches.

Distributed-Information Systems

Multi-agent based planning, control and intelligence; swarm intelligence, learning and control; distributed and decentralized control; distributed intelligence; large-scale systems; multi-resolution modeling and control; cooperative control

Hybrid Intelligent Systems

Hybrid dynamical systems control; logic control systems; pattern discovery

Learning and Adaptive Systems

Adaptive control; machine learning; learning control systems; biologically-inspired learning

Multi-Sensor Integration and Fusion

Smart sensors; knowledge-based sensor fusion

Networked Systems and Control

Wireless ad hoc and sensor networks; distributed embedded systems; control of networked dynamic systems

Reconfigurable Systems

fault detection, identification, diagnosis, prognosis, and control

Soft Computing and Heuristics

artificial intelligence; expert systems; applications of computational intelligence methodologies
