Rights accessOpen Access
The 3th IEEE Colombian Conference on Automatic Control 2017 (CCAC) was held October 18-20th, 2017 at the Corales de Indias Hotel, Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. The conference was preceded by a day devoted to four technical workshops. CCAC is the main gathering for Colombian researchers, and it has begun to attract researchers from many different Latin American institutions. CCAC has been the main control conference in the country since 2011, one year after the IEEE CSS Colombian Chapter was founded. The conference is held in odd years, and previous meetings of CCAC were held in Bogotá (2011) and Manizales (2015). This was the first time it was organized in Cartagena de Indias, a small piece of paradise in the Colombian Caribbean coast. The 2017 CCAC was, for the first time, sponsored by the IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS), which highlights the quality of the event. CCAC also received support from the CSS Outreach Program, which provided funds to support students and travel for external keynote speakers.
