The 2018 American Control Conference will be held Wednesday through Friday, June 27–29, at the Wisconsin Center, located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Milwaukee sits on the western shore of Lake Michigan, and is home to many museums, theaters, and restaurants. The two-mile RiverWalk features shops, cafes, and brewpubs. The conference venue is surrounded by fine dining, entertainment, and a vibrant night life. Downtown Milkwaukee is pedestrian-friendly, and the nearby lakefront is popular for walking, biking, sailing, kayaking, paddleboarding, windsurfing, and jetskiing. Entertainment options for conference-goers will include the 2018 Summerfest music festival, which annually offers 800 musical performances to almost 900,000 music-lovers.

The ACC is the annual conference of the American Automatic Control Council (AACC, the U.S. national member organization of the International Federation for Automatic Control (IFAC)). National and international society co-sponsors of ACC include American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), Applied Probability Society (APS), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), IEEE Control Systems Society (IEEE-CSS), International Society of Automation (ISA), Society for Modeling & Simulation International (SCS), and Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics (SIAM).

The ACC is internationally recognized as a premier scientific and engineering conference dedicated to the advancement of control theory and practice. The ACC brings together an international community of researchers and practitioners to discuss the latest findings in automatic control. The 2018 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.

The 2018 ACC Operating Committee invites the worldwide participation of all those interested in the theory and practice of automatic control systems. Welcome to Milwaukee!
