The 2018 IEEE Conference on Control Technology and Applications will be held in Wonderful Copenhagen, Denmark. This conference is one of the main conferences sponsored by the IEEE Control Systems Society. It is the second in a series that follows an evolution, replacing the successful former IEEE CCA and IEEE MSC series. The CCTA 2018 technical program will feature the presentation of contributed and invited papers, as well as tutorial sessions and workshops, focusing on technological advances and applications of control engineering. Scandinavia has several strong control groups with a tradition of cooperation with companies, and significant participation from industry is anticipated. The conference includes all aspects of control engineering for practical control systems, from analysis and design, through simulation and hardware. Major themes of energy, manufacturing, and transportation will feature applications of control technology for robotic, automotive, biomechanical, aerospace, power and energy systems, control of networks, and many others. Plenary lectures will be delivered on each of the three days as part of the conference program.

CCTA 2018 will be held at the Scandic Hotel Copenhagen (photos here). Scandic Copenhagen is located in central Copenhagen, with views of one of the three lakes and the city, and close to the Tivoli Gardens and the pedestrian street, Strøget. With its leafy parklands and canalside living, Copenhagen is a green and liveable city to visit. Summer jazz and street food markets fill the city during summer months, and there is never far to a sandy beach or harbour bar.
