The International Conference on Integrated Modeling & Analysis in Applied Control & Automation

I3M: International Mediterranean Modeling Multiconference Genoa, Italy, October 28-30 2004

I3M, International Mediterranean Simulation Multi Conference - Genoa Lighthouse

The International Conference on Integrated Modeling and Analysis in Applied Control and Automation, IMAACA 2004, will be held as part of I3M 2004 – The 2004 International Mediterranean Modeling Multiconference–, sponsored by SCS, the Society for Modeling and Simulation International. Several other international conferences will be held jointly with IMAACA 2004 as part of I3M: Advanced Vehicule Control System (AVCS 2004), Workshop on Modeling & Applied Simulation, Enviromental & Life Science Simulation, and Formal Modeling and Simulation.

Objectives and Scope

This conference will bring experts together for the purpose of presenting and discussing all type of application relevant control and automation problems emphasizing the role of model analysis as integral part of the complete design of the automated system. Particularly, it will focus on new concepts, methods, techniques, and tools conceived in order to support an integrative interplay of modeling, identification, simulation, system analysis and control theory in all the stages of system design.
