American Control Conference
The American Control Conference (ACC) is an annual research conference sponsored by the AACC and is one of the most prestigious conferences in the field of control theory. Dating back to 1960, the ACC consists of mostly researchers from the Americas with a large portion of students.
The AACC issues five awards for achievements in control theory:
- Richard E. Bellman Control Heritage Award
- Control Engineering Practice Award
- Donald P. Eckman Award
- John R. Ragazzini Award named after John R. Ragazzini
- O. Hugo Schuck Best Paper Award
- Galip Ulsoy was elected in 2006 as a member of National Academy of Engineering in Mechanical and Industrial, Manufacturing & Operational Systems Engineering for research on the dynamics and control of axially moving elastic materials and their implementation in automotive and manufacturing systems.
