Aims and Scope

The 4th IFAC Conference on Embedded Systems, Computational Intelligence and Telematics in Control (CESCIT 2021) will be, due to the sanitary crisis, a HYBRID event either virtually or in person in Valenciennes, France, July 5-7, 2021.
The conference focuses on theory, applications and developments in control related research fields, covered by the three IFAC CC3 Technical Committees. Computers for control considers a broad range of computer-based control systems, spanning from system architectures, inter-computer communications, man-machine interfaces for real-time distributed computer control systems to programmable logic controllers, Fieldbus and standards-based platforms and environments, etc. Computational intelligence in control focuses on all aspects of knowledge-based, fuzzy, neuro-fuzzy and neural (both artificial and biologically plausible) systems and evolutionary algorithms relevant to control, both theoretical and application driven. Control via communication networks encourages topics of computerized and telecommunication based automation systems, providing services to remote equipment. This addresses systems integrating methods of remote control, cooperative communication for remote applications, and remote sensor data acquisition.
CESCIT 2021 welcomes contributions related to the previous field covering all aspects from theory to applications. Contributors are invited to submit papers that, if accepted, will be scheduled for oral presentation. All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of the meeting, will be hosted on-line on the IFACPapersOnLine.net website and will be indexed in SCOPUS.

Copyright conditions

All publication material submitted for presentation at an IFAC sponsored meeting (Congress, Symposium, Conference, Workshop) must be original and hence cannot be already published, nor can it be under review elsewhere.

The authors take responsibility for the material that has been submitted. IFAC-sponsored conferences will abide by the highest standard of ethical behavior in the review process as explained on the Elsevier webpage, and the authors will abide by the IFAC publication ethics guidelines.

Accepted papers that have been presented at an IFAC meeting will be published in the proceedings of the event using the open-access IFAC-PapersOnLine series hosted on ScienceDirect. To this end, the author(s) must grant exclusive publishing rights to IFAC under a Creative Commons license when they submit the final version of the paper.
