Force Majeure: Unexpected cancellation of the conference. The Control Systems Society reserves itself the right to cancel without notice or compensation IEEE CDC 2016 in the event of force majeure cases (for example, but not limited to acts of nature such as fire, earthquake, hurricane, flood or terrorist attacks). In such cases, the CSS is freed of all responsibility. 
Limitation of liability of the Control Systems Society: In the event of it being impossible for the CSS to carry out the IEEE CDC 2016 for force majeure cases, so long as this arises from a cause not attributable to the CSS, CSS shall only be obliged to reimburse the payments received subject to deduction of any costs it has incurred in preparing the event. This liability only extends to the payments made directly to the IEEE CDC 2016 and not to payments made by the attendees to the hotel or airlines.


Workshops Registration Rates

All workshops will be offered on Sunday, December 11th, 2016. Full-Day workshops will run from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Half-Day workshops will either run from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM or from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM. The detailed program will be fixed in mid-November.

The workshops list can be found at the CDC 2016 workshops page. Please note that only people who have registered for the conference can register for the workshops.

Full-day and half-day workshop fees are as follows:

Member 150 USD 90 USD
Non-Member 150 USD 90 USD
Life Member 75 USD 45 USD
Student* 75 USD 45 USD

* STUDENTS: The Control Systems Society is providing support for an initiative to allow students, who register for the conference, to also register for a workshop at strongly discounted rates. The first 100 IEEE-CSS student members who register for a workshop will receive educational support from the society to reduce their registration to 25 USD (full day workshop) and 15 USD (half day workshop). This fee is non-refundable (with the exception of workshop cancellation). The number of available student registrations per workshop will be limited and registration will be provided on a first come first serve basis, so early registration through the conference registration page is highly recommended.

Workshops will be cancelled if not enough registrations are received by November 1st October 20th. So all the interested participants are kindly invited to register before that date.

The final list of workshops will be posted on the web site on October 24th. It will be possible to register to workshops in the final list also later than October 24th, provided that capacity constraints are not already violated.


Payment Methods:

The only accepted means of payment are by CREDIT CARD. Visa, MasterCard and American Express will be accepted.

In case of any question about registration rates and/or refund policy, please contact the Registration Chair, Professor Christoforos Hadjicostis.
