Welcome message from the general chair and the program chair

Hotel View from WaterThe annual ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Conference is a premier international conference addressing the latest advances in theory and practice of dynamic systems and control. We focus on critical issues and technical challenges faced by today's society, identify emergent technologies and breakthroughs, and disseminate effective solutions and techniques that will shape our future. This year's conference will be held jointly with the 11th Motion and Vibration Control Conference (MOVIC) hosted by the Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineers.

An exciting array of technical sessions and events are involved in our program. For the first time in the DSCC history we have selected a small number of top quality papers to be presented at a semi-plenary session. These papers represent significant achievements and breakthroughs in the broad field of dynamic systems and control. They also highlight the conference's high standard for conference publications. This year's conference will also feature: (i) special sessions on topics such as managing multi-investigator, multi-disciplinary projects; (ii) the prestigious Nyquist lecture, and; (iii) two very exciting plenary presentations by leading international researchers. In addition, there will be several sessions organized by students, and an engaging industry-academia networking session.

The conference venue is sitting in a beautiful marina overlooking the picturesque waterway of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, which is accessible by direct flights from 70 major cities worldwide. We welcome you to the 2012 DSCC/MOVIC conference.
