Contributed poster presentations will be an essential part of the conference, showcasing contributions from the broad process control community, including industrial success stories and vendor exhibits.  Authors interested in a poster presentation should submit a paper not to exceed 6 pages in the format described on the conference web site.  Extended abstracts are acceptable provided that they convey clearly the novelty and significance of the work.   All papers/abstracts submitted for poster presentation will be peer reviewed. A small number of the contributed papers may be selected for oral presentation, and a large number will be selected for inclusion in a post-conference special issue of Computers & Chemical Engineering.
