STATISTICS of CONTROLO’2006
The Local Organizing Committee of CONTROLO’2006 is proud to announce that the response to the Call
for Papers was very enthusiastic exceeding our initial expectations. We received 181
submissions from 25 different countries all over the world. After the reviewing
process has finished, 125 papers were selected for oral presentations and 12 for poster
presentations, which gives a rejection rate of 24.3%. We also acknowledge the strong
commitment from several worldwide researchers in organizing high-quality Invited Sessions
in CONTROLO’2006. This time, 6 invited sessions on topics that spam the entire spectrum
of theory and practice in the field of automatic control are available to all participants.
Papers submitted to invited sessions were subject to the same review process as regular
papers. The quality of the reviewing process is also worth mentioning. A very thorough
and valuable effort made by the reviewers resulted that all papers have received at least
two independent assessments, while 70% of the papers received at least 3 reviews.
