ACE 2013

Advances in Control Education

28-30 August 2013

ACE 2013 - the tenth IFAC Symposium on Advances in Control Education - will provide an innovative forum at which researchers and practitioners in control education will present their latest research, results and ideas.

ACE 2013 also aims to spread new knowledge and alternative approaches in education. International co-operation, especially between academia and industry, in control engineering education will be emphasised.

The official language of the symposium will be English.

Special themes and topics

We would like to encourage special sessions and papers in the areas of independent learning, web laboratories, the use of the internet in learning and teaching, and sharing learning and teaching resources.

We are also encouraging delegates to think beyond the normal 20 minute presentation format. Contact us to discuss alternatives that would be more appropriate for your proposed contribution.

Other topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  • teaching aids for control engineering

  • virtual and remote labs

  • open educational resources

  • e-learning in control engineering

  • tele-operation

  • independent learning

  • centralised internet repository for control education

  • virtual reality in control education

  • continuing control education in industry

  • university-industry co-operation in control engineering education

  • international programs in control engineering education

  • teacher and student exchange programs between control labs

  • cultural and social issues of control education

  • challenges for control engineering curricula

  • internet-based control systems materials

  • embedded systems

  • control education using laboratory equipment
