Since its inception in 2017, the ANZCC conference series has grown to a premier scientific control systems conference of the Asia-Pacific region.  The Conference welcomes presentations of new developments in theory, analysis, simulation, modelling, experimentation, field operational tests of advanced control and decision-making algorithms and their deployments in numerous application areas.

The City of Gold Coast is a celebrated holiday experience set on one of Australia’s most spectacular natural stages. From pure, adrenalin-packed fun to natural indulgence, the contrasts of Australia’s Gold Coast unite to deliver every holiday experience you could desire in one friendly place.

Traditionally, ANZCC conferences are a single-stream conferences. Consequently, ANZCC 2021 will also be conducted as a single stream conference.

At this point in time, due to the current uncertainty with COVID-19 vaccination and travel constraints, we plan to hold ANZCC 2021 as a sequence of on-line interactive sessions.
