One of the most important areas of development in control engineering during the past two decades is model-predictive control, a technique to use mathematical models for real-time optimization. The range of applications has grown and the theoretical understanding has improved. The main bottle-neck for the technique is computational complexity. This has created a strong incentive to look for distributed solutions, which would simplify computations, communication and analysis. In particular, it would be possible to extend current methods for optimized operation of industrial plants, to also include the supply chains that connect different plants with each other.

Workshop on Distributed Model Predictive Control and Supply Chains (May 19–21)

The workshop will be held at the Old Bishop's Palace. On Tuesday May 18 at 5-7pm there is a welcoming reception at the Pufendorf Institute at Biskopsgatan 3 in Lund (map). The workshop program is now available.
