Just a short message to talk about the conference i have been last week and that may interest some of you, for publications or new emerging methods. The area of the IEEE SMC ( system man and cybernetics) is systems engineering, cybernetics, and human-machine systems. It covers a wide range of topic including control system, you can have a look on the website of the conference for more info http://www.smc2013.org/. Unfortunately the proceeding of the conference is not available yet, but the ones from previous years can be seen here : http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/conhome.jsp?punumber=1000738. I particularly liked the keynote about the challenges and the future issues of control system, will let you up to date when it is available.
