The IASTED International Conference on Control and Applications (CA 2005) will act as a major forum for international researchers and practitioners interested in all areas of control and applications. It will be an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. All papers submitted to this conference will be peer evaluated by at least two reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

CA 2005 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conference on Modelling and Simulation (MS 2005).

CA 2005 will be held in the beautiful resort city of Cancun at the luxurious Westin Regina Resort. Fourteen miles of sugar-white sand, lapped by the turquoise and emerald waters of the Caribbean, make Cancun one of the world’s most popular travel destinations. Besides its superlative swimming and snorkeling, Cancun is also the gateway to the ruins and cultural treasures of Ancient Mexico. The nearby city of Chichen Itza, with its 75-foot pyramid built in honor of the god Kukulcán, is the most famous Mayan cultural site in the world. Another notable site nearby is the ancient walled city of Tulum, believed by archeologists to be an important ceremonial and trade center for the Mayan people. Cancun also boasts many ecological wonders, including the nearby Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve and the coves and caves of Xcaret.
