The 32nd Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation, MED 2024, returns to the beautiful and historical island of Crete, in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. The venue is the “Great Arsenal” and “Mikis Theodorakis” Theater Hall of KAM Center of Mediterranean Architecture, two iconic buildings from the 15th century, in the old harbor of Chania, less than a 30 minute-drive from “Ioannis Daskalogiannis” Chania International Airport.

The theme of MED 2024 centers on the control and automation challenges and opportunities in the 21 st century, focusing on system design for autonomy and resilience in high-confidence cyber-physical systems.

MED 2024 extends across four full days, and it is organized under the auspices of the Technical University of Crete. On June 11, the focus will be on Tutorials and Workshops, while the subsequent three days, June 12-14, will comprise the technical conference. Aligning with the current trend of merging control and systems theory with hardware/software and communication technologies, the conference will explore advancements in robotics and unmanned systems, autonomous systems, mechatronics, cyber-physical systems, and network-controlled systems. These topics of interest aim to foster collaboration between control and automation scientists and industry professionals.
