Chair: Simone Formentin Politecnico di Milano Italy Email The System Identification and Control Technical Committee is responsible for promoting, co-ordinating and organising activities sponsored by the IEEE Control Systems Society in the areas of system identification and adaptive control. The system identification scope includes all aspects of system modelling and identification, from theoretical and methodological developments to practical applications. This includes, among others, the topics of model selection, identification methods, tracking and adaptation, model validation, fault detection, and experiment design. The adaptive control scope encompasses continuous and discontinuous adaptation and learning rules for prediction, control and optimisation. This includes model-based and data-based adaptive control together with adaptation schemes for prediction, filtering and decision making.
