 Stability of model predictive control
 Economic model predictive control
 Big data and predictive control
 Model predictive control in the cloud/IoT and model predictive control
 Learning and model predictive control
 Moving horizon estimation
 Hierarchical and decentralized predictive control
 Embedded and real-time feasible predictive control
 Applications of model predictive control

NMPC 2016 will take place in the city of Wisconsin, Madison, USA in
the fluno conference center. It is located between the lakes Mendota and
