16.04.2015. BREAKING NEWS: We are very happy that Professor Rudolf Kalman has confirmed his participation in MICNON 2015.

He will be delivering the keynote talk: "Insight from the Outside" with the following brief abstracts:
"The title of the talk is, perhaps, a little frivolous, but it is meant very seriously, and the analysis goes back to Kepler, Newton, Betrand Russell, and the "Kalman" filter, and it leads in a straight line to the Popov-Yakubovich-Kalman lemma".

General Information

The 1st IFAC Conference on Modelling, Identification and Control of Nonlinear Systems (MICNON 2015) to be held in beautiful Saint Petersburg, Russia, on June 24-26, 2015. The conference is dedicated to the memory of the great Russian mathematician and control scientist Vladimir Yakubovich (1926-2012).

MICNON 2015 Proceedings will be published in the IFAC-PapersOnline database and indexed by Scopus.

SJR (SCImago Journal Rank) of IFAC-PapersOnline in 2013 is 0.200.

MICNON 2015 will be the first of a new conference series that is organized by the IFAC Technical Committee on Nonlinear Systems (that is also in charge of the NOLCOS series). The scope of the conference will cover all areas of nonlinear systems theory and applications in science and engineering, including control of nonlinear systems, analysis of nonlinear systems, modelling and identification of nonlinear systems and all types of applications in connection to nonlinear systems.

The following plenary talks by eminent speakers are already confirmed:

There will be a special track in honor of Vladimir Yakubovich: a Historical Session "Essays and Recollections" and Invited Sessions KYP Lemma and Relevant Issues, Optimal and Adaptive Control, Nonlinear Stability and Oscillations.
