We are very pleased to welcome you to attend the 3rd IFAC Conference on Embedded Systems, Computational Intelligence and Telematics in ControlCESCIT 2018.

This international event will take place at University of Algarve, Gambelas Campus, Faro, Portugal, June 6 to 8, 2018.


CESCIT is a triennial conference co-locating all events of IFAC CC3 in the year following the IFAC World Congress. The aim of CESCIT is to serve as a platform for scientists, researchers, and practitioners to discuss their forefront research results and findings, to shape their future directions and developments, and to exchange their knowledge and perspectives in the fields of computer control, intelligent control, and communication and telematics.

In IFAC, these fields are covered by the Coordinating Committee on Computers, Cognition and Communication in Control (CC3). Although the IFAC Technical Committees for Computers for Control (3.1), Computational Intelligence in Control (3.2) and Telematics: Control via Communication Networks (3.3) sponsor their specific conference, the three TCs felt the need to organize a conference, focusing on all aspects of embedded systems that are of particular interest of control systems implementation. So, CESCIT was devised as a triennial event, organized in each year following the IFAC’s World Congress. Its first issue was held in Würzburg, Germany in 2012, and the second in Maribor, Slovenia in 2015.

CESCIT 2018 welcomes contributions (please see the Call for Papers) covering all aspects from theory to applications. Contributors are invited to submit special sessions and papers that, if accepted, will be scheduled for oral or poster presentation. All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of the meeting, will be hosted on-line on the IFACPapersOnLine website and will be indexed in SCOPUS.

To foster industrial participation, and following the pattern from the previous IFAC World Congresses, CESCIT 2018 also welcomes authors from industry, presenting successful projects, good practices, industry/academia collaboration etc., to submit short (2-4 pages) papers that will be reviewed by the assigned IPC co-chair and, if accepted, included in the special industrial session. They will be printed in the book of abstracts and will be handed out at the conference.
