Cambridge, United Kingdom


The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)


The 11th IASTED International Conference on Control and Applications (CA 2009) will be 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 double-blind peer reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee and related technical committees. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality, significance, technical soundness, presentation, and references. The conference chair makes the final decision on the acceptance or rejection of the paper.

CA 2009 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

* Visualization, Imaging and Image Processing (VIIP 2009)
* Technical, Medical and Scientific Publishing (TMSP 2009)
* Internet and Multimedia Systems and Applications (EuroIMSA 2009)


Cambridge is the home of the famous University, carols in King's College Chapel and punting on the river Cam. Cambridge is a compact cosmopolitan city with outstanding architecture old and new. The beauty of its ancient centre is preserved with its walkable medieval streets, college courts, gardens and bridges. Cambridge is a delight to visit in any season: relax in its many pubs, restaurants and cafes whilst exploring the independent shops around the historic market place. There are brand new shopping areas too, with all the high street favourites that you would expect. Be inspired by the museums and art galleries; spot the stars of the future at a student theatrical production, or see a show at the Arts Theatre. Film, live music of all kinds, poetry readings, public lectures - enter into the intellectual life of the students while you are here.
