IEEE master brandA non-profit organization, IEEE is the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology.

IEEE CSSThe IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS) was founded in l954 as a scientific, engineering and professional organization dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practice of systems and control in engineering.

The 2012 IEEE Multi-Conference on Systems and Control (MSC 2012) will take place in Dubrovnik Palace Hotel, Dubrovnik, Croatia, on October 3-5, 2012.

MSC 2012 includes two international conferences sponsored and promoted by the IEEE Control Systems Society:
* the IEEE Conference on Control Applications (CCA), and,
* the IEEE International Symposium on Intelligent Control (ISIC).

MSC 2012 will be a three-day event, preceded by a full day of Tutorials and Workshops. The conference proceedings will be included in IEEE Xplore and indexed by INSPEC and Ei-Compendex.
