The IEEE Control Systems Society Technical Committee on Computational Aspects of Control System Design (TC-CACSD) is dedicated to providing focused information to researchers and practitioners who are interested in computational methods in optimization, systems and control.
The scope of TC-CACSD has been evolving over time, reflecting the rapid and continuous changes in this computational discipline. The term CACSD is now widely used to denote the field of study concerned with algorithms, computers and software to be used as enabling technology in control engineering. In this sense, the TC-CACSD is not restricted to a given application area, but it is characterized by an algorithmic or computational approach, based on a solid mathematical background, with the aim of solving control problems.
Motivated by the increasing complexity of modern control problems, characterized by large dimensions and the presence of uncertainties, many researchers are now actively developing computational methodologies for the dealing with such problems. The techniques employed are frequently borrowed from fields such as optimization or computer science.
The IEEE Technical Committee on Computational Aspects of Control System Design operates in synergy with germane organizations inside the IEEE Control System Society, specifically with the Technical Committee on Systems with Uncertainty and the Technical Committee on System Identification and Adaptive Control. Also, our TC holds a strict and regular collaboration with the IFAC Technical Committee 2.5 on Robust Control.
The Committee is responsible for organizing the IEEE CACSD Symposia. Starting 2008, the CACSD Symposia are part of the part of the IEEE Multi-conference on Systems and Control (MSC). Click here to find out more about the history of past Symposia.
