ICINCO is sponsored by INSTICC (Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication).


The purpose of the 7th International Conference on Informatics in Control, Automation and Robotics (ICINCO) is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in the application of informatics to Control, Automation and Robotics. Three simultaneous tracks will be held, covering Intelligent Control Systems, Optimization, Robotics, Automation, Signal Processing, Systems Modeling and Control.

Informatics applications are pervasive in many areas of Control, Automation and Robotics; This conference intends to emphasize this connection, therefore, authors should highlight the benefits of Information Technology (IT) in these areas. Ideas on how to solve problems using IT, both in R&D and industrial applications, are welcome. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the Proceedings of ICINCO, with an ISBN. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Both full research reports and work-in-progress reports are welcome. There will be both oral and poster sessions.

Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial or organizing a workshop are invited to contact the conference secretariat. Additional information can be found at http://www.icinco.org/.


Each of these topic areas is expanded below but the sub-topics list is not exhaustive. Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related sub-topics are also acceptable, provided they fit in one of the following conference areas:

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a LNEE Series book.
The proceedings will be indexed by Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC and DBLP.
EI already agreed to index the proceedings of ICINCO 2006, 2007 and 2008. Proceedings of ICINCO 2009 are under evaluation and the proceedings of ICINCO 2010 will be evaluated by EI after their publication.


The conference will be held in the Hotel Tivoli Madeira. The Tivoli Madeira is a truly stunning property located 5 minutes from Funchal city centre and 30 minutes from Madeira International Airport. This award-winning hotel overlooks the beachfront promenade and guests are guaranteed gorgeous views of the sea with direct access from the hotel to the sandy beach.
