Call for invited sessions and tracks
Invited sessions consist of 5-6 papers of the regular format focusing on targeted subjects and presenting a unifying theme. Invited session organizers should submit an abstract that summarizes the aim and the content of the invited session. A code will be assigned to such a session. The invited author should submit their papers by using this code. If at least 5 papers are accepted, the session is included in the conference program as an invited session. If an invited session is not accepted, accepted papers submitted to this session will be included in regular sessions. Invited sessions, grouped together in a track must be submitted independently. The track chairs are asked to contact the organizers prior to session proposal submissions.
Call for contributed papers
Authors may submit a contribution independently of invited sessions. They are invited to submit papers (6 pages) reporting original research of theoretical or applied nature as contributed paper. All paper submissions as well as Invited Session Proposals must be electronically submitted through the PaperPlaza Conference Manuscript Management System. Post-conference Proceedings will be published in IFAC-PapersOnLine (Elsevier) with DOI, the articles of Proceedings will be in open access. IFAC journals will also select papers for post-conference publications. Special issues are planned in IJPR and a number of other prestigious International Journals for extended version of selected papers.

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 (https://www.elsevier.com/authors/journal-authors/policies-and-ethics), and the authors will abide by the IFAC publication ethics guidelines (http://www.ifac-control.org/events/organizers-guide/PublicationEthicsGuidelines.pdf/view).
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 (http://www.sciencedirect.com). 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.
