Call for Papers

Data Driven Control and Learning Systems Conference (DDCLS) is an annual conference organized by Technical Committee on Data Driven Control, Learning and Optimization, Chinese Association of Automation. 2017 IEEE 6th Data Driven Control and Learning Systems Conference (DDCLS'17) will be held in Chongqing, China, May 26-27, 2017, sponsored by IEEE Beijing Section and IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, and locally organized by Chongqing Jiaotong University.

In the last two DDCLS conferences, DDCLSĄŻ15, Beijing and DDCLSĄŻ16, Yinchuan, a lot of renowned scholars from different countries were invited to deliver plenary lectures, for example, Prof. Frank L. Lewis from University of Texas at Arlington, Prof. Jian-Xin Xu from National University of Singapore, Prof. Tianyou Chai from Northeastern University and Prof. Feiyue Wang from Chinese Academy of Sciences. DDCLSĄŻs purpose is to create a forum for scientists, engineers and practitioners throughout the world to present the latest developments in data-driven control, learning, automation and optimization.

DDCLS'17 has been approved by IEEE, and the English papers accepted by the conference will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore, and indexed by EI Compendex, as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

The DDCLS'17 covers both theory and applications in all the areas of data driven control and learning systems. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
-- Data-driven control theory, approaches and applications
-- Model-free adaptive control theory and applications
-- Active disturbance rejection control and applications
-- Data-driven fault diagnosis, health maintenance and performance evaluation
-- Iterative learning identification, iterative learning control (repetitive control)
-- Data-driven modeling, optimization, scheduling, decision and simulation
-- Statistical learning, machine learning, data mining and practical applications in automation field
-- Neural networks, fuzzy systems control methods in data driven manner
-- Reinforcement learning control
-- Robustness on data-driven control
-- Complementary controller design approaches and relationships between data-driven and model-based control methods
-- Applications of data-driven methods to industrial processes
-- Data-driven modeling, control and optimization for traffic systems
-- Data-driven control for practical complex processes
-- Technology of complex big-data systems and applications
-- Big data in industrial processes and its applications in modeling and control

DDCLSĄŻ17 will invite several renowned scholars to deliver plenary letctures and semi-plenary lectures covering the state-of-the-art in both theory and applications of data-based control and learning systems.

      Prof. Weihua Gui, Central South University, China
      Prof. Zhiqiang Gao, Cleveland State University, USA
      Prof. Marco C. Campi, University of Brescia, Italy

Invited Sessions:Prospective organizers are invited to directly submit proposals to the Special and Invited Session Chair.

DDCLS Best Paper Award:Selection of the awarded paper will be made based on both the technical content and presentation. The winner will be chosen by the Award Committee comprising of internationally renowned experts in data-driven control and learning.
