This track focuses on the critical issues in industrial control. Industrial control addresses the use of sensors, metrology, and algorithms to monitor equipment, processes, and products to provide actionable information for maintenance and control. The successful application of industrial control draws from the domain expertise of multiple disciplines that are typically responsible for delivering separate elements of the complete solution, such as IT/factory automation, process technology, control engineering, yield management, safety engineering, etc.

Topics under this track include (but not limited to)

  • Process Monitoring and Control
  • Equipment Monitoring and Control
  • Supervisory Control
  • Intelligent Control
  • Process Modeling and Optimization
  • Control Performance Assessment
  • Industrial Internet of Things
  • Industrial Control Applications
  • Computer Implementation of Control Systems
  • Safety Issues in Industrial Control
  • Environmental Implications of Control Systems
  • Fault-tolerant control systems
  • Event-based control design
  • Control of processes with delay
