Control Problems in Industry

July 22-23, 1994

Holiday Inn on the Bay at the Embarcadero

San Diego, California

This symposium will focus on industrial control applications that have benefited from recent mathematical and technological developments. The presentations have been selected primarily for the practical significance of the problems solved, though all have significant mathematical content. They are a good sample of current work in industrial control, with emphasis on real-world payoff.

The speakers come from industry and academia, and they will cover a broad range of applications, including applications from the automotive, aerospace, chemical, electronics industries and applications in optics, process control and image processing. Anyone who values useful mathematics will find much of interest in this symposium.

The symposium is being conducted by SIAM with the cooperation of the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique (INRIA).

The symposium is conducted with partial support from the Department of Energy.
