— 18th IFAC International Conference on International Stability, Technology and Culture TECIS 2018

About TECIS18

TECIS 2018 aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia. Technology development leads to dramatic changes in international stability. It has never been so important to examine system stability. Currently and during the recent years social international and national systems of control have been shown to be inadequate and prone to be fundamental and most basic instable. Many basic assumptions are no longer certain and are definitely questioned. This event will systematically examine these topics. Another goal of the TECIS conference is to propose new approaches in dealing with globalization effects, as studying complexity and knowledge management.


Control Systems, Mechatronics, Oil and Gas, Online Social Networks, Stability, Technology and Culture, assembly, open Innovation, engineering ethics, tele-medical systems, Sustainable Design and Control

Authors are encouraged to submit papers, invited sessions, pre-conference workshops & tutorials, as well as exhibitions & posters from industrial companies or institutions. Prospective authors are invited to submit papers of maximum six pages. All contributions must be formatted according to IFAC style and must be submitted via the Paper Plaza Conference Manuscript Management System. The PDF file is limited to 2MB in size. Authors are encouraged to follow IFAC guidelines for paper formatting. Please consult the TECIS 2018 website for more information. Submitted papers at TECIS 2018 must be original and hence cannot be already published, nor can they be under review elsewhere. Prospective authors are expected to present their papers at the conference. For each accepted paper at least one of the authors should register (full registration) before uploading the final version of the paper. With full registration two papers with reduced registration fee one paper can be uploaded. A proposal for an invited session must include titles, abstract, authors of either one survey and four regular or six regular papers, a one-page description for the special session including session outline, contact information of the proposer. The best IFAC young author award (IFAC, YAA) will be granted to a PhD student and/or a student less than 30 years as the first author and presents the paper at TECIS 2018. Shortlisted nominees will get a travel grant.
