IFAC MICNON 2018 : 2nd IFAC Conference on Modelling Identification and Control of Nonlinear Systems
Call For Papers
2nd IFAC Conference on Modelling Identification and Control of Nonlinear Systems
(IFAC MICNON 2018)
June 20-22, 2018
On behalf of the Program Committee, it is our pleasure to welcome you to the Second IFAC Conference on Modelling Identification and Control of Nonlinear Systems (IFAC MICNON 2018). MICNON 2018 will be held in Guadalajara, Mexico during June 20-22, 2018, as a sequence to MICNON 2015 (Saint-Petersburg, Russia). This conference series that is organized by the IFAC Technical Committee on Nonlinear Systems (that is also in charge of the NOLCOS series).
The MICNON 2018 will cover all areas of nonlinear systems theory and applications, including control and analysis of nonlinear systems, modelling and identification of nonlinear systems and all types of applications in connection to nonlinear systems. The organization of MICNON 2018 in Guadalajara-Mexico will be a catalyzer to increase the research interest in nonlinear systems as well as a great opportunity to explore the research advances in the Automatic Control community.
The MICNON 2018 program will consist of plenary lectures, parallel and panel sessions, invited talks, industrial exhibitions and more. MICNON 2018 will be accompanied by a pre-conference day of workshops and tutorials. Besides, the MICNON 2018 is complemented with a social and cultural program to enjoy Guadalajara and Mexico.
We invite you to participate in different ways with: Contributed papers, Invited Sessions, Tutorial Sessions, Panel Sessions, Special Sessions, Workshops, Exhibits and more. Papers, session and workshop proposals must be submitted through the submission website. Submissions must conform to policies given on the conference website https://www.micnon2018.org/, for the rest of proposals, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org, and looking forward to welcoming you in Guadalajara!
Deadline for submission: February 05, 2018 (Firm Deadline)
Notification of acceptance: April 02, 2018
Final paper submission: April 30, 2018
Conference dates: June 20-22, 2018
Confirmed Plenary Speakers
Frank Allgower, University of Stuttgart
David Angeli, Imperial College London
Antonio Bicchi, Italian Institute of Technology
Patrizio Colaneri, Politecnico di Milano
Zhong-Ping Jiang, NYU Tandon School of Engineering
Thomas Schön, Uppsala University
Mark Spong, University of Texas at Dallas
Kumar Venayagamoorthy, Clemson University
Rene Vidal, The Johns Hopkins University
During the conference an innovative "tandem plenary" format will be proposed with three different subjects addressed by two speakers each presenting different viewpoints and developing different topics within the subjects. The three research subjects presented in tandem are:
1) Economic Model Predictive Control, tandem plenary speakers: Frank Allgower and David Angeli
2) Nonlinear Control in Robotics, tandem plenary speakers: Antonio Bicchi and Mark Spong
3) Identification and Deep Learning for Nonlinear Control Systems, tandem plenary speakers: Thomas Schön and Rene Vidal.
Special regular and invited sessions will be organized around those subjects with pertinent papers regularly submitted to the conference. Submissions of papers around those research areas are thus particularly solicited.
