Discord Control Conference
The Discord Control Conference (DCC) is an online conference aiming at bringing together Researchers, Engineers, Students, and Hobbyists in the vast fields of Control Theory, Control Engineering, and their Applications. The DCC is an initiative aimed at promoting active discussion of control projects or topics. At the end of each month, if there is enough content, presenters and participants gather in a voice channel on the Control Engineering Discord Server. The general target length for a DCC is 1-2 hours.
The DCC aims at being an inclusive conference for all levels within the control engineering field. Therefore there are no requirements on the level of experience of the presenter. Almost any content may be presented as long as it’s related to control engineering. However it is preferable that there is a diverse mixture of applied controls and more theoretical results. As a presenter it is important to keep in mind that not everyone may be an expert in your subfield and therefore keeping content conceptually understandable is important. Some examples of the type of presentations are
- Project presentation
- Test Lecture
- Subject overview
- Reality check on an idea
- Presentation of research
Almost anything is acceptable as long as it is relevant to the users of the server! The key is to target the correct time frame for the content. A five minute presentation has very few rigor requirements and could get you unexpectedly good feedback on your topic!
The 3rd DCC has not yet been announced. If you are interested in participating, fill out the application form.
