The Organizing Committee is pleased to invite you to Azores, Portugal, for the 13th APCA International Conference on Control and Soft-Computing (CONTROLO 2018). The conference will be held in Ponta Delgada, São Miguel Island, from 4 - 6, June 2018 and followed by two thematic workshops on June 7. This 13th edition of the conference is a special landmark for APCA, as it coincides with the celebration of its 25th anniversary.

CONTROLO 2018 intends to emerge as a world-class international forum for the presentation and discussion of new advances and research outcomes, and is an appealing opportunity for informal networking in the fields of Automatic Control, Automation and Soft-Computing.

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit full papers in English, 6 pages, in pdf format, following instructions accessible on the conference webpage. All peer reviewed, accepted and presented papers will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library, while the proceedings will be submitted to Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC and Scopus for indexation. In addition, authors of selected papers will be called upon to resubmit extended versions of their papers to a designated high impact-factor International Journal.
