TC 2.6. Distributed Parameter Systems


Welcome Message from the Chair

 Welcome to the official web-page of the IFAC Technical Committee 2.6 on Distributed Parameter Systems

The aim of this technical committee is to foster developments of both theoretical approaches and emerging applications in the field of Distributed Parameter Systems (DPS) i.e. infinite dimensional systems described by partial differential equations (PDEs) or delays. The positioning of this Technical Committee is clearly at a control system theory level and aims at addressing various topics such as: modelling, analysis, estimation, simulation, observation, and control, taking all the specificities of the infinite dimension into account.

The goal of this website is to serve as a resource for junior and senior researchers and engineers working in areas related to DPS, providing an informational forum of exchange of ideas and experiences, and promoting the identification and integration of new approaches.
