Room Sharing

Student Hotel Accommodation -- Roommate Finder

To help students identify other students who may be interested in sharing a room at the CDC 2019, a Facebook group has been created. Note that the Roommate Finder group serves just as a tool to identify potential roommates. The conference organizers will not perform the booking/reservation nor are any financial obligations involved. The responsibility to reserve/book the rooms is with the participating students only. In short, there is no administrative or financial responsibility with the conference organizers and you will organize everything by yourself. Please make the room reservation for yourself and take care of the communication with your roommate! For hotel information, please see the conference webpage Hotel-Local Information.

Meet the Faculty Candidates poster session

Building on the success of the past several events, the 2019 CDC will feature the "Meet the Faculty Candidates" poster session. This poster session provides a great opportunity for faculty, search committee members, and recruiters to speak directly with current graduate students and postdoctoral researchers who are seeking faculty positions.

Faculty candidates, registered for the conference, are invited to register for this poster session by completing this online registration form by November 15th, 2019 December 1st, 2019. The session will be held on Wednesday, December 11th, from 18:30 to 20:30 at the Acropolis Convention and Exhibition Center. Space will be available on a first-come first-serve basis.

Presenters are asked to bring a poster no larger than 3ft x 4ft (A0 format) along with pushpins to attach the poster. Presenters will likely be more successful providing high-level discussions of their work such as motivation, strategies, unique insights, rather than narrow mathematical detailed discussions, unless asked specifically for those details. Presenters are also encouraged to bring copies of their CV for distribution. If you have questions please contact Antoine Chaillet at

IEEE CSS Student Travel Support Program of CDC 2019

Program Details

The Organizing Committee of CDC 2019 is pleased to announce Student Travel Support, made available by the IEEE Control Systems Society. These funds are meant to enhance the chances of promising students to attend CDC 2019, present their papers and become more integrated into the CSS scientific community. The limited amount of funds available are not reimbursed to the student awardees, but are applied by the conference organizers to (i) conference registration and (ii) partial lodging expenses; please click here for more information.

Eligibility and Requirements

Each applicant

  1. must be an author or co-author of a paper accepted for presentation at CDC 2019,
  2. must register at the conference (please see further instructions below),
  3. must present a paper.

In order to be eligible for either program, an applicant must be a (student) member of both IEEE and CSS, at the time of the conference registration.

In case the number of applicants exceeds the budget, additional criteria will be used to make a selection among the applicants. These additional criteria, in decreasing order of importance, prefer applicants who have not benefited from this scheme in the last two years, will present more than one paper at the conference, have been student members of the CSS since one, two, or more years, can demonstrate active participation in CSS. In addition, the selection committee may decide to limit awards where more than one presenter from the same institution would otherwise be offered an award to attend the same conference.
