Invited Sessions: ACC 2014

There will be 39 Invited Sessions in the 2014 American Control Conference, with over 190 invited papers. Invited Sessions are highlighted in yellow in the Program at a Glance.

Invited session papers were reviewed using the same process as for regular contributed papers, with acceptance/rejection decisions made individually for each paper. These decisions are based on 2 or more external reviews, an Associate Editor's summary review, and an independent audit. Invited Session Proposals were also reviewed.

Although an Invited Session may be accepted, this does not guarantee that all papers in that session have been accepted. In some cases, regular contributed papers have been assigned to Invited Sessions, as deemed appropriate based on topic and content. A summary of the Invited Sessions topics is given below.
