2013 3rd International Conference on
Instrumentation, Control and Automation

Grand Inna Kuta, Kuta, Bali Indonesia | 28-30 August 2013

On behalf of the entire ICA organizing committee, it is my great pleasure to welcome all participants to the 2013 3rd International Conference on Instrumentation, Control and Automation (ICA 2013) in Kuta, Bali, Indonesia. This is the third international conference of the previously known ICA after for more than 20 years had conducted similar events for national scale. ICA becomes regularly biannual event held by Instrumentation and Control Research Division, Faculty of Industrial Technology, Institut Teknologi Bandung. The rapid growth in the subjects of instrumentation, control, and automation has motivated us to improve the previous conference into international conference.

ICA 2013 has attracted a great number of academicians, scientists, engineers, postgraduates and other professionals all over the world. The aim of the conference is to stimulate interaction among engineers, researchers, and scientists active in these areas. It provides a high-level international forum to present, to exchange and to discuss recent advances, new techniques and applications in the field of instrumentation, control and automation. This event is co-sponsored by Faculty of Industrial Technology, Bandung Institute of Technology.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my special thanks for their great support, which is very important for our conference. I am also grateful for the support of publication service of IEEE which technically sponsored by the IEEE Indonesia CSS/RAS Joint Chapter and the IEEE Indonesia Section. We hope that the conference could give you wonderful memories to bring home in addition to new insights and friendship gathered during the conference.

We are fortunate to have world-known keynote speakers: Prof. dr. ir. René Boel (Universiteit Gent, Belgium), Prof. Dr. Saifur Rahman (Virginia Tech, USA), Prof. Akira Namatame (National Defense Academy, Japan), and Prof. Dr. Eng. Deddy Kurniadi, (InstitutTeknologi Bandung, Indonesia), who are willing to share their perspectives on the current status of researches.

In addition, I would also thanks to the PT Badak NGL that contributes as Gold Sponsor, also to the corporate sponsors i.e. SKKMIGAS, PT Cinovasi Rekaprima and PT Smartadeco Indonesia, in which, without their support, we would not able to organize this conference. I believe that we will have high quality discussions in order to increase our excellence in industrial areas of instrumentation, control, and automation. I also hope that this will become a stepping stone of a potential collaboration between academicians and industry professionals in Indonesia in the future.

Of course, special thanks also goes to all individuals and organizations such as the international program committees (IPC), the conference organizers, the reviewers, the authors, and all of the participants for their contributions in making ICA 2013, not only successful international conference, but also as a memorable gathering event. Finally, we wish you all to take the opportunities to enjoy Indonesia and unique culture of Bali, which known as the Island of Gods. Welcome to Bali!

Best regards,

Dr. Augie Widyotriatmo
General Chair of ICA 2013
