The 12th IFAC Symposium on Dynamics and Control of Process Systems, including Biosystems (DYCOPS 2019) will be held in Florianópolis, Brazil, on April 23-26, 2019. This symposium brings together specialists active in academic research and industrial development in the broad field of process dynamics, control and optimization applied to bio/chemical systems and biotechnology. The DYCOPS symposia were initiated over 30 years ago under the name DYCORD (Dynamics and Control of Chemical Reactors, Distillation Columns and Batch Reactors), while CAB (Computer Applications in Biotechnology) originates from a series of events that started during the mid-1970s. The merging of the two events into a single symposium was successfully implemented in the last DYCOPS-CAB 2016 held in Trondheim, and it is maintained at DYCOPS 2019.
The deadline for early registration is January 21. Registration information and additional conference details are available at the conference website: http://dycopscab2019.sites.ufsc.br
Please take special note of the optional training workshops to be held the first day of the conference: http://dycopscab2019.sites.ufsc.br/Workshops.html
