Second Workshop announcement

"Nonlinear Model Based Control - Software and Applications" (NMPC-SOFAP,
2007)

http://www-staff.lboro.ac.uk/~cgzkn/NMPC-SOFAP07/

April 19-20, 2007

Loughborough,
United Kingdom


!!!DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSION EXTENDED TO 15 February 2007!!!


Aim of the two day workshop is to bring together scientists and
practitioners working on nonlinear model based predictive control (NMPC)
in real world applications, and on software solutions that broaden the
applicability of this powerful control approach.

The following topics shall be addressed in a very interactive workshop:

- NMPC applications in chemical engineering, aerospace, automotive,
  robotics, ...
- nonlinear modelling environments
- numerical methods for online optimal control and estimation
- interfaces between process, models, and optimizer
- coupling of estimation and model based control
- open source and commercial software developments for academic and
  industrial NMPC solutions

The workshop will consist of keynote lectures, invited talks and regular
presentations.

Keynote Speakers:

       Lorenz T. Biegler, Carnegie Mellon, USA
       Rolf Findeisen, University of Stuttgart, Germany
       Eric Kerrigan, Imperial College London, UK
       Jacques Richalet, France
       Tor Steinar Schei, Cybernetica AS, Norway

Apart from the talks, part of the workshop is dedicated
to interactive software demonstrations.
