The 10th IFAC Conference on Control Applications in Marine Systems (CAMS 2016) will take place in Trondheim, Norway, from September 13-16, 2016.
CAMS returns to Trondheim after 21 years and will be organized by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in cooperation with the Norwegian Society of Automatic Control (NFA), the national member organization for Norway in the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC).
The conference will provide an excellent opportunity for the presentation and discussion of research results and development in the areas of control applications for surface & underwater vessels, floating & sub-sea structures, and other marine systems.
Besides presenting scientific research results and technical advances, the conference will provide an ideal platform for students, researchers, professors, leading marine control experts, research facilities, control system developers, marine system manufacturers and industrial end-users to meet and share ideas and experiences on recent work, as well as on new perspectives resulting from recent innovation.
CAMS 2016 will provide an excellent opportunity for industry, universities and research facilities to explore the future trends in application of control theory to marine systems, and to establish new and innovative activities for applying advanced solutions to marine systems.
