IEEE/CSAA Guidance, Navigation and Control Conference (IEEE/CSAA GNCC) is a biennial event, which is also one of the leading events in Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC). It provides a forum for scientists and engineers over the world to present their new theoretical results and techniques in the fields of GNC. The conference consists of pre-conference tutorials, plenary talks, panel discussions, invited sessions, oral sessions and poster sessions for academic exchanges. The conference papers in English will be included in the IEEE CPP (Conference Publications Program), and selected best papers will be recommended to SCI or SCI-Expanded journals.

IEEE/CSAA GNCC2018 will be held in Xiamen in August 10-12, 2018, following the successes of previous seven events. It is sponsored by Technical Committee on Guidance, Navigation and Control (TCGNC), Chinese Society of Aeronautics and Astronautics (CSAA), Science and Technology on Aircraft Control Laboratory, and IEEE Control System Society (CSS) Chapter, Nanjing. It is co-sponsored Technical Committee on Control Theory (TCCT), Chinese Association of Automation (CAA). IEEE/CSAA GNCC2018 is locally organized by Xiamen University. We sincerely welcome our colleagues worldwide to join us for this conference.

Topics of interests are in the broad areas of GNC, including but not limited to:
