23rd International Conference on Process Control

The objective of the conference is to bring together theory experts and control systems practitioners, to evaluate the new avenues for techniques, design procedures and instruments in process control. The conference will feature plenary and keynotes lectures, standard parallel sessions, a poster session, a dedicated workshop, and a rich social program. Contributions are invited to range from theoretically rigorous research works to industrial applications.

COVID-19 Announcement

Despite our hopes and efforts to hold Process Control 2021 as the traditional in-person event while spending time with our colleagues in fruitful discussions surrounded by astounding nature at Štrbské pleso in Slovakia, the pandemic situation still poses challenges for travelling and meeting for all researchers around the world. For this reason, the organizing committee has decided to organize the conference as a virtual event. We plan to have as many live elements in the conference programme as possible and we are already working to ensure the best possible experience for the participants. We are looking forward to seeing you live yet virtual. Instructions for authors were updated subject to the online format.
