Welcome to ISICT 2012


The 8th IEEE International Symposium on Instrumentation and Control Technology

ISICT 2012 will be held at the University of Westminster in London, United Kingdom, 11-13 July 2012.

The 8th IEEE International Symposium on Instrumentation and Control Technology (ISICT 2012) provides an established forum for scientists and engineers on the field of Instrumentation and Control Technology to meet and exchange information about novel and emergent development, applications in Measurement, Sensors, Instrumentation and Control Technology areas.

Building upon the success of the 1st-7th ISICT series conferences over the last decade, The 8th IEEE International Symposium on Instrumentation and Control Technology will take place in city of London, the first city to officially host the modern Olympic Games three times. Like the celebration of the Olympic Games encompasses many rituals and symbols, the ISICT 2012 shall continue the tradition of bringing together top specialists in the broad area of Measurement, Sensors, Instrumentation, Computer Control Technology and allow participants from all over the world to celebrate and enjoy the incomparable platform for knowledge mining, idea exchanging and collaboration discussing. 

A special issue in the international journal MEASUREMENT will be published after the conference to cover high level contributions provided the authors extend their content presented at the conference. It should be noted that one author of the paper to be submitted to the special issue must present their work in the conference, and all papers will be peer-reviewed.
