2021 International Conference on Control and Decision (ICoCD 2021) will be held in Guangzhou, China on February 23-25, 2021.

ICoCD 2021 welcomes researchers, engineers, scientists and industry professionals to an open forum where advances in the field of Control and Decision can be shared and examined. The conference is an ideal platform for keeping up with advances and changes to a consistently morphing field. Leading researchers and industry experts from around the globe will be presenting the latest studies through papers and oral presentations. 

ICoCD is organized by HKSRA.


ICoCD 2021 will be held in Guangzhou, China during Feb.23-25, 2021.

ICoCD 2020 has been held sucessfully in Sydney, Australia during Feb.17-19, 2020.

2020 International Conference on Control and Decision (ICoCD 2020) has been postponed to February 17-19, 2020. Under the serious impact of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), to reduce the risks of our participants, we will arrange to hold the conference within just one day (Feb. 18).

Oral Presentation Guidline


15 mins(including 2-3 mins Q&A)

People vary in their ability to speak confidently in public, but everyone gets nervous and everyone can learn how to improve their presentation skills by applying a few simple techniques.

The main points to pay attention to in delivery are the quality of your voice, your rapport with the audience, use of notes and use of visual aids. Voice quality involves attention to volume, speed and fluency, clarity and pronunciation. The quality of your voice in a presentation will improve dramatically if you are able to practise beforehand in a room similar to the one you will be presenting in. 

Rapport with the audience involves attention to eye contact, sensitivity to how the audience is responding to your talk and what you look like from the point of view of the audience. These can be improved by practising in front of one or two friends or video-taping your rehearsal.

Poster Presentation Guildline

Poster Size: A0

Posters are a key component of communicating your science and an important element in a successful scientific career. Posters, while delivering the same high-quality science, offer a different medium from either oral presentations or published papers, and should be treated accordingly. Posters should be considered a snapshot of your work intended to engage colleagues in a dialogue about the work, or, if you are not present, to be a summary that will encourage the reader to want to learn more. 

The poster is usually a mixture of a brief text mixed with tables, graphs, pictures, and other presentation formats. At a conference, the researcher stands by the poster display while other participants can come and view the presentation and interact with the author.
