Call For Papers

23rd International Conference on System Theory, Control and Computing - ICSTCC 2019
October 9-11, 2019, Sinaia, Romania

Call for papers for the invited session on
Advanced Topics in Chemical Process Control: Resilience, Optimization and Decision-Making Systems

Invited session code: wq2y2

This invited session aims at designing and analyzing high-performance resilient control systems for chemical processes. The topic is one of high importance nowadays since chemical processes are the core of a large number of critical infrastructures such as refineries, petrochemical and pharmaceutical plants or wastewater processing facilities. These infrastructures are supposed to function without error and any interruptions for significant periods of time. This goal can be achieved only if the supporting infrastructure is reliable and the control systems are more secure, dependable, maintainable and high-performing than the controlled infrastructure.
In other words, the next generation of control systems should be designed to keep their normal operation in response to any disturbances, being them operational errors, unexpected malfunctions or malicious threats.
The invited session focuses on, but is not limited to the following topics - resilience of control systems in critical infrastructures;
- resilient chemical process control;
- advanced chemical process control;
- control systems security;
- optimal control systems;
- decision-making systems;
- machine learning applications for resilient chemical process control.
