Regional Analysis of Distributed Parameter Systems (RA-DPS)

Regional Analysis of Distributed Parameter Systems (RA-DPS)

A Pre-conference Tutorial Workshop for IFAC World Congress 2017

This is the web page for IFAC World Congress 2017 Pre-conference Tutorial on "Regional Analysis of Distributed Parameter Systems (RA-DPS)."  Registration link:

The full details are here: ifac-wc2017-tutorial-proposal-regional-analysis-of-distributed-parameter-systems-final.pdf or ifac-wc2017-tutorial-proposal-regional-analysis-of-distributed-parameter-systems-final.docx

Please check this link for why we believe this is an important topic. and

It was regretful that both Prof. El Jai and Zerrik could not make to the IFAC World Congress on July 8th of 2017. We remain very respectful and grateful for their support and pioneering works.
