The 33 rd Chinese Control and Decision Conference (CCDC 2021) will be held in Kunming, China, from 22 to 24 May 2021. Chinese Control and Decision Conference (CCDC) is an annual international conference, covering both theories and applications in all areas of control, system, and decision. Its purpose is to create a forum for scientists,engineers and practitioners from all over the world to present the latest developments in control, decision, robotics, automation, and other emerging technologies. CCDC provides a variety of opportunities for academic exchange and sharing, such as keynotes, distinguished lectures, preconference workshops, special sessions, tutorials, thematic forums, oral presentation sessions, interactive sessions, and so on. English is the official language for CCDC. Conference papers written in English will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province, is known as 'the City of Eternal Spring' for its pleasant climate and flowers that bloom all year long. With a history of more than 2,400 years, it was the gateway to the much celebrated Silk Road that facilitated trade with Southeast Asia, South Asia, and beyond. Today it is the political, economical and cultural center of Yunnan Province as well as one of the most popular tourist destinations in southwest China.

The venue of this conference is located at the Yunan Conference Resort Hotel. CCDC 2021 strives to provide you with excellent opportunities for fruitful academic exchanges as well as immersive cultural experience of the City of Eternal Spring.
