NATIONAL COLLOQUIUM ON PROCESS CONTROL 2013 (NCPC’2013)

“Empowering Process Control beyond Sustainable Future”

ORGANIZED BY
PROCESS CONTROL RESEARCH GROUP
SCHOOL OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING, UNIVERSITI SAINS MALAYSIA

Overview:
The USM Process Control Research Group (PCRG) has decided to organize a national colloquium on process control, where postgraduate students from public and private universities in Malaysia are able to share ideas and expertise. This annual event should become an avenue of interactive and cooperative among postgraduate students and academic staff from member’s universities. The colloquium is a joint collaboration of all interrelated faculties of public and private institution of higher learning. This colloquium will be hosted on a rotation basis. Process Control Group from School of Chemical Engineering, USM has agreed to host the first colloquium.

Registration Fees:
RM 250.00 per participant. The registration fee includes materials and meals.

Date :
1st October 2013 (Tuesday)

Venue:
NPCC’2013 will be held at SERC Complex, USM Engineering Campus, Nibong Tebal, Seberang Prai Selatan, Penang, Malaysia.

Scope:
Topics of interest covered by NCPC’2013 included, but were not limited to:

  • Modelling : Environmental Modelling, Numerical Methods, Statistical and Probabilistic Modelling, Model Development, Simulation and Time Series Analysis.
  • Identification : Estimation, Linear and Nonlinear Time Series Analysis, State Estimation, Model Validation and Statistical Analysis.
  • Control : Adaptive Control, Intelligent Control, Process Control, Control Theory, Optimization, Real Time Systems and Advanced Control.

Objectives:
The objectives of this national postgraduate colloquium are to achieve the following:
• To provide a forum for direct exchange between postgraduate student in the process control areas.
• To provide a basis for future cooperation and exchange among the participants.
• To bring young researchers in the area of analyzing process and problems towards designing better process control system.

Who should attend?
• Doctoral and postgraduate students
• Supervisors, lectures and any interested individual

Outcomes:
• We hope that participants from various disciplines in process control will gain knowledge and experience from plenary lectures and be acquainted with other research areas from parallel sessions.
• We anticipate that young researchers from process control fields to rise to the challenges and exploit the enormous opportunities ahead.
