CPC 2017

Chemical Process Control is the premier international conference on process control, aiming to assess progress in the theory and practice of process control, and to identify major directions for research and technology development in the next decade. Invited oral presentations from industry and academia provide authoritative overviews, and contributed poster presentations illustrate the depth and breadth of the field. Interactive panel discussions are among the conference highlights. Informal interactions and ample opportunities for networking are facilitated by a compact, yet flexible schedule, which includes group hospitality every evening of the conference. The CPC and FOCAPO conferences go in parallel with several joint programming sessions to explore the interface of operations and control, and their integration in the context of enterprise-wide operations. In addition to core subjects and applications in the process industries, topics such as energy sustainability, big data and cyber-physical systems, along with emerging technologies in the advanced materials and health-related industries.
