Third International Symposium on Control, Automation, Industrial Informatics and Smart Grid (ICAIS'15)

The aim of Third International Symposium on Control, Automation, Industrial Informatics and Smart Grid (ICAIS'15) is to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia and provide them with a platform to report on recent developments, deployments, technology trends and research results, as well as initiatives related to control, automation,  industrial informatics and smart grid and their applications.  


The program committee solicits original research papers to be considered for presentation at the symposium and publication in the proceedings. Authors should submit their papers online. We use EDAS system for managing submissions and review process. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EDAS to log on. Detailed usage instruction on EDAS can be found here. The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Please compare all author names in EDAS with the author list in your paper. They must be identical and in the same order.
