Mahindra École Centrale College of Engineering, Hyderabad hosts Indian Control Conference 2016

More than 170 participants congregate for the conference including 70 odd Doctoral students and 100 academicians, including 20 from around the world.

The Second Indian Control Conference (ICC 2016) took place at Mahindra École Centrale College of Engineering, Hyderabad during January 4-6, 2016. ICC is a leading engineering and scientific conference, committed to the progress and development of control theory and practice. The ICC 2016 brought together more that 70 Doctoral students and over 100 academicians, researchers and practitioners to discuss the latest in the world of control systems. Over 20 of these Control specialists flew into India to be a part of the proceedings.

Most developing and developed countries have yearly (international and national) conferences completely dedicated to control systems and its applications IEEE, the biggest professional body in the world, sponsors many control based conferences including organizing the annual Conference on Decision and Control. To fill the gap of such a conference in India, Professor Vidyasagar (Univeristy of Texas, Dallas) along with several researchers from Indian institutes including Professor Vijaysekhar Chellaboina (Mahindra École Centrale) started the Indian Control Conference in 2015. The first edition was held in IIT Madras in January 2015. The current edition is being held at Mahindra École Centrale. The conference is sponsored by IIT Hyderabad and technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Control System Society along with several industry sponsors including Mathworks, GE, Honeywell, and ABB. The IEEE outreach fund also supports travel and other expenses for more than seventy doctoral students.
