The Twelfth IASTED International Conference on Control and Applications (CA 2010) will be a major forum for international researchers and practitioners interested in all areas of control and applications. This conference will offer the opportunity to both present and to observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas.

CA 2010 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

* Modelling and Simulation (MS 2010)
* Wireless Communications (WC 2010)
* Environmental Management and Engineering (EME 2010)
* Solar Energy (SOE 2010)


Nestled in the heart of the Canadian Rockies and spanning 6,641 square kilometres of valleys, mountains, glaciers, forests, meadows, and rivers, Banff National Park is truly one of the world's premier destination spots. Banff was Canada's first national park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Summer in Banff means time to put away the skis and bring out the hiking boots. Banff National Park is a hiking wonderland, containing over 1,600 kilometres of trails. Even in July, the warmest month, the Rockies will fill you with awe as you fish, golf, camp, horseback ride, go whitewater rafting, or take a helicopter ride. Visitors can tour historic sites, soak in hot springs, stroll along the shores of Lake Louise, and enjoy many first class accommodations. Drive the Icefields Parkway into adjoining Jasper National Park and you have an excellent chance of seeing elk, deer, moose, and black bears along the roadside. Take a ride on the Banff gondola or spend just one night camping under the diamond-lit sky and you will be convinced that this is the most beautiful place on earth.
