CCTA 2023, the 7th IEEE Conference on Control Technology and Applications, will be held Wednesday through Friday, August 16-18, in Bridgetown, Barbados. CCTA 2023 will be an in person conference. CCTA 2023 is one of the main conferences sponsored by the IEEE Control Systems Society. The technical program will feature the presentation of contributed and invited papers, as well as tutorial sessions and workshops, focusing on technological advances and applications of control engineering. CCTA 2023 will spearhead a new initiative that emphasizes career networking and special sessions focused on industry relevant control problems. It will also provide an avenue for enhanced interactions between industry, government and academic researchers. With easy accessibility, including from Europe and the Americas, and industry sponsored sessions, significant participation from industry is anticipated. The conference includes all aspects of control engineering for practical control systems, from analysis and design, through simulation and hardware. CCTA 2023 will feature applications of control technology for robotic, mechatronic, biomechanical, aerospace, power and energy systems, mobility, smart cities, control of networks, AI/ML developments in control, and many others. Plenary lectures will be delivered on each of the three days as part of the conference program. A series of tutorial workshops will be presented on Tuesday preceding the conference. Authors of selected articles presented at CCTA 2023 will be invited to prepare an extended version of their work to be considered for publication in a Special Issue of IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology (TCST). Participants will have the opportunity to present their papers that were published in IEEE TCST in 2022-2023.
