Notice on COVID-19 related

As of April 24, the organizing committee of ICCAS 2020 decided to have the regular conference format for ICCAS 2020. However, if the spread of COVID-19/travel restriction continues, then we may have hybrid conference (on-site + on-line) or may go to fully virtual conference. In any case, all accepted and registered papers will be published in the conference proceedings and distributed via IEEE Xplore, Ei Compendex, and SCOPUS.

ICCAS 2020 will be held on October 13~16, 2020 at BEXCO, Busan, Korea. The aim of ICCAS 2020 is to bring together professors, researchers, engineers, and students from worldwide to present their recent works and discuss the state-of-the-art technologies related to control, automation, robotics, and systems.

Call for Organized Sessions

If you are interested in organizing a session, you are asked to submit a session proposal through an email to the Program Chair; Hyungbo Shim ( or Hyo-Sung Ahn ( including the following.

  • Proposed title of the organized session
  • Name, affiliation, contact information of organizer(s)
  • Summary statement: Describe the motivation and relevance of the proposed session.
  • List of participating authors and paper titles: Each session typically consists of six papers because a session is 90 minutes long and each presentation takes 15 min. This format may be altered by the proposer. For example, three presentations of 30 min long, or one 30-min presentation + four 15-min presentations are also acceptable. In the proposal, please describe the structure of the session, and list the participating authors and the tentative titles of their papers.

The session proposal will be briefly reviewed and a Session Code will be issued to the organizer. Then, the organizer should share the Session Code to all participating authors so that they use the code for the submission of their paper.
