Dear Colleague, It gives us great pleasure in welcoming you to the 10th International Symposium on Dynamics and Control of Process Systems (DYCOPS 2013). DYCOPS is the triennial meeting of the International Federation of Automatic Control, that brings bring together scientists and engineers from universities, R&D laboratories, vendor companies and the process industries to focus attention on new methodologies and challenging applications within Process Systems Engineering in the light of industrial contexts and trends. The DYCOPS Symposia are a continuing series of international conferences, initiated in 1986 under the name DYCORD (Dynamics and Control of Chemical Reactors, Distillation Columns and Batch Processes), and renamed in 1998 at the occasion of its 5th edition in Corfu (Greece). DYCOPS 2013 is technically sponsored by the IFAC Technical Committee (TC 6.1) on Chemical Process Control and co-sponsored by the IFAC TC on Biosystems and Bioprocesses (TC 8.4). Following the tradition of the previous symposia held in Cancun (Mexico, 2007), Belgium(Leuven, 2010), DYCOPS 2013 is held back-to-back with the IFAC symposia on Computer Applications to Biotechnology (CAB 2013) at IIT Bombay, Mumbai, India. The two symposia are organized contiguously to facilitate the interaction between the process systems engineering communities of chemical engineering and biotechnology. Mumbai, or Bombay of old, is the financial capital of India and a city that never sleeps. It is the capital of Maharashtra state. Once a cluster of seven islands, Mumbai has transformed itself into an entity with thriving markets, business houses, restaurants, fashion streets and many different communities reflecting a cosmopolitan and trendy atmosphere rarely seen elsewhere. IIT Bombay is recognized worldwide as a leader in the field of engineering education and research. It is reputed for the quality of its faculty and the outstanding caliber of students graduating from its undergraduate and postgraduate programs. We hope that in addition to attending the symposia, you will find some time to interact with the faculty and students at IIT Bombay, and also enjoy the various attractions that Mumbai offers, during your stay. The DYCOPS 2013 Symposium will extend over three days, the first of which is joint with CAB. Each day opens with a plenary and has two parallel keynotes in the early afternoon. The first day also has two parallel keynotes in the morning. Each morning and afternoon has one set of three parallel sessions, and during the second and third day there will be poster presentations in the afternoons right after the keynotes. The first plenary speaker (joint with CAB) is Richard Braatz from MIT (USA), who presents a paper on “Robustness Analysis, Prediction and Estimation for Uncertain Biochemical Networks”. The second plenary speaker is Alf Isaksson from ABB (Sweden) with a talk on “Some Aspects of Industrial System Identification”. The third plenary speaker is Larry Biegler from Carnegie Mellon University (USA) who presents “A Survey on Sensitivity-Based Nonlinear Model Predictive Control”. The eight keynote papers, two of which are shared with CAB, have been selected by the IPC from submitted regular papers based on review scores. The number of papers submitted to DYCOPS2013 was 183, of which 137 have been included in the final program. Submissions came from all over the world and the five most represented countries, based on the corresponding author affiliations, were: India, Canada, Norway, USA and Germany. We wish to thank all attendees for their participation and their help in maintaining DYCOPS as a premier international conference for our community.

Abstract

Dear Colleague, It gives us great pleasure in welcoming you to the 10th International Symposium on Dynamics and Control of Process Systems (DYCOPS 2013). DYCOPS is the triennial meeting of the International Federation of Automatic Control, that brings bring together scientists and engineers from universities, R&D laboratories, vendor companies and the process industries to focus attention on new methodologies and challenging applications within Process Systems Engineering in the light of industrial contexts and trends. The DYCOPS Symposia are a continuing series of international conferences, initiated in 1986 under the name DYCORD (Dynamics and Control of Chemical Reactors, Distillation Columns and Batch Processes), and renamed in 1998 at the occasion of its 5th edition in Corfu (Greece). DYCOPS 2013 is technically sponsored by the IFAC Technical Committee (TC 6.1) on Chemical Process Control and co-sponsored by the IFAC TC on Biosystems and Bioprocesses (TC 8.4). Following the tradition of the previous symposia held in Cancun (Mexico, 2007), Belgium(Leuven, 2010), DYCOPS 2013 is held back-to-back with the IFAC symposia on Computer Applications to Biotechnology (CAB 2013) at IIT Bombay, Mumbai, India. The two symposia are organized contiguously to facilitate the interaction between the process systems engineering communities of chemical engineering and biotechnology. Mumbai, or Bombay of old, is the financial capital of India and a city that never sleeps. It is the capital of Maharashtra state. Once a cluster of seven islands, Mumbai has transformed itself into an entity with thriving markets, business houses, restaurants, fashion streets and many different communities reflecting a cosmopolitan and trendy atmosphere rarely seen elsewhere. IIT Bombay is recognized worldwide as a leader in the field of engineering education and research. It is reputed for the quality of its faculty and the outstanding caliber of students graduating from its undergraduate and postgraduate programs. We hope that in addition to attending the symposia, you will find some time to interact with the faculty and students at IIT Bombay, and also enjoy the various attractions that Mumbai offers, during your stay.
