ADCHEM 2024 – Second Call for Papers

Dear Colleagues:

In this, our Second Call for Papers, we cordially invite you to contribute to ADCHEM 2024, the 12th IFAC Symposium on Advanced Control of Chemical Processes, which will be held in Toronto (Canada) from July 14 to 17, 2024.

ADCHEM is a triennial symposium of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC). It will bring together researchers and practitioners from all over the world to foster discussions of recent developments in the control and modeling of chemical, biomedical, and related process systems. ADCHEM has traditionally had strong industrial participation. The conference is expected to have a significant impact on process manufacturing, with the confluence of advanced control theory, optimization, algorithms, data analytics and digitalization.

The IFAC Foundation is providing funding to waive the registration fees of a number of young authors from developing countries. Details, and an application form, may be found on the conference web site.
