The 2015 ACC technical program will comprise several types of presentations in regular and invited sessions, tutorial sessions, and special sessions along with workshops and exhibits. Submissions are encouraged in all areas of the theory and practice of automatic control, including within the special themes of energy, biomedical, and transportation systems, which will be the topics of three of the plenary/semi-plenary lectures that open full days of topical sessions.

The 2015 ACC Operating Committee invites the worldwide participation of all those interested in the theory and practice of automatic control systems. Welcome to the Windy City!
