CDC 2022 Call for Workshops Proposals, Cancún, Mexico

Workshop Chair: Maria Letizia Corradini, letizia.corradini@unicam.it

Diversity and Inclusion Chair: Karen Rudie, karen.rudie@queensu.ca

The 61st IEEE Conference on Decision and Control will be held Tuesday through Friday, December 6-9, 2022 at the Marriott and JW Marriott Cancun Resort, Cancún, Mexico. The conference will be preceded by workshops on Monday, December 5, 2022, addressing current and future topics in control systems from experts from academia, research institutes, and industry. The workshops are expected to be delivered in person (possibly in hybrid mode).

The Workshop Chair and the Diversity and Inclusion Chair invite your submission of workshop proposals. A workshop proposal should focus on a specific theme related to the main conference topics, describing objectives and expected outcomes, including expected attendance. The workshop proposal should also include the workshop presenters’ short bio and contact information, the list of speakers, and the schedule (either half day of four hours or a full day of eight hours), as well as a statement explaining the diversity of the session along dimensions such as gender, geography, industry/academia affiliation and other forms of diversity.

Proposals should be submitted through PaperPlaza within May 16th, 2022.

CDC 2022 is committed to being not only the premier venue for the dissemination of work in automatic control but to also provide an environment that is inclusive and supportive to our members. We are aiming to make CDC 2022 a model for other IEEE Societies in diversity, equity, and inclusion, and to create a forum where we broadly reach out to elicit the best scholarship, innovation, and breadth of ideas that our community has to offer. To help us achieve our goals, workshop proposals should include a statement explaining the diversity of the session along dimensions such as gender, geography, industry/academia affiliation and other forms of diversity.  If creating a diverse session is particularly challenging for you, please include a statement indicating what efforts you took to increase the diversity.   We welcome any additional forms of diversity you wish to articulate.

The workshops will be offered based on viable attendance. The 61st CDC reserves the right to cancel nonviable workshops.

Questions can be directed to the Workshop Chair, Professor Maria Letizia Corradini, letizia.corradini@unicam.it
