The aim of second ACODS-2012 is to bring together engineers, scientists and academics working in advanced areas of control and optimization of dynamical systems. The theme of the conference is broad enough to encompass both theory and applications. Application areas include, but are not restricted to robotics, aerospace vehicles, manufacturing, process control, computer aided control, biomedical engineering, automation, and mechanical and electrical systems. Papers are invited in these and other areas where control and optimization of dynamical systems plays an important role. The conference will have several special sessions as well.
