Set against the captivating backdrop of Reykjavík, Iceland, from June 18-21, 2018, this conference is jointly organized by the IEEE Singapore Control Systems Chapter, the IEEE Iceland Section, and the Hong Kong Centre for Logistics Robotics. It is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Control Systems Society and the University of Iceland. Our aim with this event is to provide a dynamic platform for scientists and engineers worldwide to share their latest research findings and ideas in the domains of control and automation.

Reykjavík, renowned as the earth's northernmost sovereign capital and coastal city, offers a captivating blend of culture, history, and natural beauty. As our host city, it promises to provide an unforgettable backdrop for our conference activities, with its vibrant atmosphere and proximity to iconic attractions such as the Golden Circle Iceland tour.

Over the years, it has traversed borders, being hosted in diverse locales such as South Africa, Canada, Hungary, USA, Italy, Scotland and more, steadily growing into a pivotal international event in the realms of systems, control, and automation. This year, we received 212 submissions from academic researchers and engineers spanning 25 countries and regions worldwide. Following a rigorous review process by our esteemed program committee and reviewers, we are proud to include 165 high-quality manuscripts in our final technical program and conference proceedings.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all members of the organizing committee and the program committee as well as the reviewers for their unwavering dedication and tireless efforts over the past few months.
