Student Programs

The ACC supports students in a variety of ways. Students are offered lower registration rates and lower hotel room rates (for a limited room block). The ACC also coordinates a conference-wide Student Best Paper Award and provides Student Travel Grants.

Student Best Paper Award

The 2021 ACC is pleased to continue the tradition of the Student Best Paper Award. All primary, first-listed authors of a regular contributed paper who are students at the time of submission are eligible. To be considered for the award, a blind version of the paper must be nominated by the student’s advisor. The link for submission can be found on PaperPlaza. The nominated papers will be reviewed by a special committee convened for the best study paper award competition.

Finalists will present their nominated papers in a special session for the Best Student Paper Awards with the winner presented at the AACC Awards Ceremony at the conference.

Student Travel Grants

The 2021 American Control Conference Organizing Committee will continue the tradition of providing partial student support for students traveling to the 2021 ACC in New Orleans, LA, USA. 

The application for student travel support, as well as details regarding eligibility conditions for support and a description of the support will be made available here at a later date. 

A roommate finding procedure will be made available to students to allow them to share a hotel room and reduce their lodging costs.
