The 13th APCA International Conference on Control and Soft Computing (CONTROLO 2018) will be held in Ponta Delgada, São Miguel Island, Azores, Portugal, on 4-6 June 2018.

The conference is organized under the sponsorship of the Portuguese Association of Automatic Control (APCA), a national member organization of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC), which is one of the additional co-sponsors of the event. This 13th edition of the conference is a special landmark for APCA, as it coincides with the celebration of its 25th anniversary.

Theoretical and applied contributions will be accepted in the fields of Control Systems, Soft Computing and Automation. All peer reviewed 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.

CONTROLO 2018 intends to emerge as a world-class international forum for the presentation and discussion of new advances and research outcomes, particularly in the conference’s scope, and will also be an appealing opportunity for informal networking in the fields of Automatic Control, Automation and Soft-Computing, and related topics.
