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

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

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, Life Science Simulation, and Formal Modeling and Simulation.

Objectives and Scopes

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.

  • Paper Submission

    Papers will be considered for presentation at the workshop only on the basis of a full paper revision. Please send drafts of about 12-17 pages, double-spaced, pdf or ps format. Please attach a file with a cover letter specifying "IMAACA 2004", and stating your name, affiliation, mail address, telephone number, FAX number, and E-mail address. The full papers will be first reviewed by the two Chairs for general suitability to the conference. After this first selection, each full paper will be reviewed by members of the International Program Committee.

    Special and Invited Sessions

    Session proposals are to be sent by 30 November 2003. They should include a minimum of five papers, a session title, a list of the topics covered, and the qualifications and brief biography of the session organizers.


    Proposals for tutorials should be submitted by 30 December 2003.


    Papers involving real application works will receive a special attention. Only original papers, written in English, which have not previously been published elsewhere will be accepted.
