DEADLINE EXTENDED to January 21, 2019 - Submission of Contributed Abstracts    

 As  a professional society, SIAM is committed to providing an inclusive climate  that encourages the open expression and exchange of ideas, that is free from  all forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, and that is welcoming  and comfortable to all members and to those who participate in its activities.  In pursuit of that commitment, SIAM is dedicated to the philosophy of equality  of opportunity and treatment for all participants regardless of gender, gender  identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, color, national or ethnic  origin, religion or religious belief, age, marital status, disabilities,  veteran status, field of expertise, or any other reason not related to scientific  merit. This philosophy extends from SIAM conferences, to its publications, and  to its governing structures and bodies. We expect all members of SIAM and  participants in SIAM activities to work towards this commitment.

SIAM Conference on Control and Its Applications (CT19) will be held on June 19-21, 2019 in Chengdu,China.

CT19 aims to provide an opportunity to researchers around the world to share their ideas and research.





Please submit an abstract or minisymposium proposal relevant to any of the conference themes or, more broadly, relevant to control theory and its applications.
