The 8th IFAC Symposium on System Structure and Control (SSSC) , 17th IFAC Workshop on Time Delay Systems (TDS) , 5th IFAC Workshop on Linear Parameter Varying Systems (LPVS), will be held jointly in Montreal, Canada, on September 27-30, 2022. For call for papers see here. Preliminary program posted, see under Program tab.

Initial submission deadline is April 15, 2022 May 9, 2022. Final Submission Deadline August 31, 2022. Submission link at Paperplaza can be found here. Contributions can be submitted asĀ either an discussion paper (2 pages) or a full paper (8 pages initial submission, 6 pages final submission).

The joint conference is planned to be an in-person event, to be held at Sheraton Hotels by Marriott in downtown Montreal between September 27-30, 2022. Please note that the event can be switched to a virtual/hybrid event if the global pandemic conditions do not allow for in-person meetings.

The aim of this joint event is to gather academics and professionals with a special interest on system structure, control, linear and nonlinear system theory, and to offer them a forum where to discuss current research developments and open problems as well as to establish scientific networks with a focus on the mathematical structure of systems as well as on the limits it imposes on control systems design and performance.

Starting with 2013, the Symposium on System Structure and Control (SSSC) and the Workshop on Time Delay Systems (TDS) take place in the framework of “joint IFAC Conferences”. The novelty of this joint event is that it will include also the Workshop on Linear Parameter Varying Systems (LPVS). The present joint conference aims to achieve the same high quality standard of IFAC. As for the previous editions, the National Organizing Committee (NOC) and the Program Editor are the same for the “joint IFAC Conference” and the registration fees are unique for the whole event, allowing the participants to follow sessions of any of the symposium (SSSC) and workshops (TDS, LPVS). The joint conference is structured across multiple tracks, each of them incorporating several special or regular sessions, poster sessions and industry presentations and demonstrations. The paper proposals will undergo a standard peer reviewing process. Accepted and presented papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings, which will be published in IFAC PapersOnLine.
