Invitation to TECIS 2018:

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the TECIS 2018,

which aims to bring together researchers and practitioners

from industry and academia to give an overview of the state

of the art, to present new research results and to exchange

ideas and experiences in the fields of technology and

international stability.


Meeting Scope and Objectives:

Technology development leads to dramatic changes in

international stability. It has never been so important to

examine system stability. Currently and during the recent

years social international and national systems of control have

been shown to be inadequate and prone to be fundamental

and most basic instable. Many basic assumptions are no longer

certain and are definitely questioned. This event will

systematically examine these topics. Another goal of the TECIS

conference is to propose new approaches in dealing with

globalization effects, as studying complexity and knowledge




The scope of the conference will cover but is not limited to:

  • Control and Automation to Improve Stability
  • Young Engineers in Control
  • Automation and Control in Oil and Gas Industry
  • Social Aspects of Oil and Gas Engineering
  • Developments in Petrochemical Industry
  • Development of Regions, Countries
  • Social Networks
  • Managing the Introduction of Technological Change to

Improve Stability

  • Technology in Post-conflict Regions
  • Innovation Management
  • Open Innovation and Applications
  • Enterprise Integration and Networking, Software
  • Cost Oriented Automation (COA)
  • SME-oriented Automation
  • Decision Support Systems for SME's
  • Semi-Automated Assembly and Disassembly (EoL)
  • Intelligent Systems and Applications
  • Mechatronic Systems and Robotics
  • Robotics and Handling Devices
  • Artificial Intelligence and Applications
  • Retrofitting of Automation Devices
  • Engineering Ethics
  • Tele-medical Systems
  • Cross-cultural Aspects of Engineering (TRIZ theory, etc.)
  • Control & Political Stability
  • Models & Simulation
  • Sustainable Design and Control
  • Control of Security and Privacy
  • Human aspects of safety and risk engineering
  • Biomedical Systems

Authors are encouraged to submit papers, invited sessions,

pre-conference workshops & tutorials, as well as exhibitions &

posters from industrial companies or institutions.

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers of maximum

six pages. All contributions must be formatted according to

IFAC style and must be submitted via the Paper Plaza

Conference Manuscript Management System. The PDF file is

limited to 2MB in size. Authors are encouraged to follow IFAC

guidelines for paper formatting. Please consult the TECIS 2018

website for more information.

Submitted papers at TECIS 2018 must be original and hence

cannot be already published, nor can they be under review

elsewhere. Prospective authors are expected to present their

papers at the conference. For each accepted paper at least one

of the authors should register (full registration) before

uploading the final version of the paper. With full registration

two papers with reduced registration fee one paper can be


A proposal for an invited session must include titles, abstract,

authors of either one survey and four regular or six regular

papers, a one-page description for the special session including

session outline, contact information of the proposer.

The best IFAC young author award (IFAC, YAA) will be granted

to a PhD student and/or a student less than 30 years as the

first author and presents the paper at TECIS 2018. Shortlisted

nominees will get a travel grant.


Survey papers will be given by:

  1. Allgöwer (Stuttgart University, Germany; IFAC President)
  2. Duda (Emerson Automation, Switzerland)
  3. Jesse (QuinScape, Germany)
  4. Groumpos (University of Patras, Greece)
  5. Stapleton (Waterford Institute of Technology, Ireland)
  6. Aliyev (Institute of Applied Mathematics, BSU, Azerbaijan)
  7. Aliyev (Institute of Control Systems, ANAS, Azerbaijan)



Azerbaijan, officially the Republic of Azerbaijan is the largest

country in the Caucasus region of Eurasia. Located at the

crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe.

Baku is the capital and largest city of Azerbaijan, as well as the

largest city on the Caspian Sea and of the Caucasus region.

Baku is located 28 metres (92 ft) below sea level, which makes

it the lowest lying national capital in the world. It is located on

the southern shore of the Absheron Peninsula, alongside the

Bay of Baku.


Old City and Flame Towers

The city is the scientific, cultural and industrial center of

Azerbaijan. Baku is rich on historical monuments as well as

hypermodern buildings and lots of leisure activities for fair


During the event technical and cultural visits will be scheduled,

e.g. temple of fire, Heydar Aliyev Culture Centre, Old town

center, Sumgayit Technology Park, swimming oil fields – Oil

Rocks, Jumeirah Beach, Sumgayit city and others.

Baku is in the middle of Europe and Asia, on the ancient

Silkway, easy accessible from both continents with railways and

direct flights from most capitals worldwide, or low-cost flights

through Istanbul, Kiew, Moscow and a lot more destinations.


Paper submission:

All publication material submitted for presentation at an IFACsponsored

meeting (Congress, Symposium, Conference,

Workshop) must be original and hence cannot be already

published, nor can it be under review elsewhere. The authors

take responsibility for the material that has been submitted.

IFAC-sponsored conferences will abide by the highest standard

of ethical behaviour in the review process as explained on the

Elsevier webpage (http://www.elsevier.com/journalauthors/

author-rights-and-responsibilities ), and the authors

will abide by the IFAC publication ethics guidelines



s.pdf/view ).

Accepted papers that have been presented at an IFAC meeting

will be published in the proceedings of the event using the

open-access IFAC-PapersOnLine series hosted on

ScienceDirect (http://www.sciencedirect.com). To this end,

the author(s) must confer the copyright to IFAC when they

submit the final version of the paper through the paper

submission process. The author(s) retain the right to use a

copy of the paper for personal use, internal institutional use at

the author(s)’ institution, or scholarly posting at an open web

site operated by the author(s) or their institution, limited to

noncommercial use. Any other use of the paper requires

approval by IFAC.”
