6th IFAC International Conference on Nonlinear Model Predictive Control - NMPC 2018 August 19th-22nd, 2018 Madison, Wisconsin, US Submission deadlines: Invited session proposals 25 MARCH 2018 Regular & invited papers, workshop proposals 5 APRIL 2018 Abstracts contributions 25 APRIL 2018 The 6th IFAC International Conference on Nonlinear Model Predictive Control, will take place in the city of Wisconsin, Madison, US, August 19th-22nd, 2018. NMPC 2018 aims at bringing together researchers interested and working in the field of model predictive control and related areas such as moving horizon estimation, from both academia and industry. This allows to reflect and establish the current state-of-the-art and focus the future development towards relevant directions. Major conference topics are (detailed list see conference webpage): · Uncertainty and model predictive control · 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 Madison 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 Monona on the University of Wisconsin Madison campus, in the downtown and cultural center of Madison. Madison is the capital of the U.S. state of Wisconsin.
