2020 IFAC World Congress Accepted Papers - Congratulations!

MESA Lab has 11 papers accepted by IFAC World Congress 2020 in Berlin, Germany. This conference takes place every three years. 2017 was in Toulouse, France, 2014 was in Capetwon South Africa, 2011 was in Milan, Italy, 2008 in Seoul, Korea, 2005 in Prague, CZ ... We published papers in 2002 Barcelona IFAC WC. Prof. Chen attended the 2005 one in Prague where R. E. Kalman gave the plenary talk with the first slide on "Get the physics right, the rest is mathematics." We published an important paper with my research vision “Band-reconfigurable Multi-UAV-based Cooperative Remote Sensing for Real-time Water Management and Distributed Irrigation Control” in 2008 Korea IFAC WC. We won the Best Journal Paper Award in 2011 with title “Tuning and Auto-Tuning of Fractional Order Controllers for Industry Applications”. Dr. Chen attended 2014 and 2017 IFAC World Congress. In 2017, we proudly offered this RA_DPS preconference tutorial workshop (video recorded). In 2020, we have the following 11 papers accepted - we feel proud of our strong results!

I feel regretful that we have 6 papers rejected with some surprises. The following half-day pre-conference tutorial workshop proposals were all rejected with big surprise:

  • Fractional Order Process Controls: How Process Control Can Benefit from using Fractional Calculus and Edge-AI?  
  • Advanced Control and Analysis for Networked Diffusion Systems  
  • Advanced big data analytics for control performance assessment in Industry
Good news is that we are on this full day pre-conference workshop on "Advanced Topics in PID Control System Design, Automatic Tuning and Applications" Organisers: Liuping Wang and Antonio Visioli
