18th IFAC Conference - TECIS '18, 13-15 September 2018, Baku

Dear Colleague,
It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the TECIS 2018, which aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia to give an overview of the state of the art, to present new research results and to exchange ideas and experiences in the fields of technology and international stability.
Meeting Scope and Objectives:
It has never been so important to examine system stability ever before. 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 i- stable. Many basic assumptions are no longer certain and are definitely questioned. This event will systematically examine these topics. Another goal of the TECIS 18 conference is to propose new approaches in dealing with globalization effects, while studying complexity and knowledge management, of course focusing on core technologies - control, robotics and automation!
The scope of the conference will cover but is not limited to:

  • Control and Automation to Improve Stability
  • Social Aspects of Oil and Gas Engineering
  • Social Networks
  • Innovation Management
  • Enterprise Integration and Networking, Software
  • Cost Oriented Automation (COA)
  • SME-oriented Automation
  • Decision Support Systems for SME’s
  • Semi-Automated Assembly and Disassembly (EoL)
  • Intelligent Systems and Applications
  • Mechatronic Systems and Robotics
  • Retrofitting of Automation Devices
  • Engineering Ethics
  • Tele-medical Systems
  • Cross-cultural Aspects of Engineering
  • Artificial Intelligence and Applications
  • Sustainable Design and Control
