Welcome to PID'12

Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) controllers are undoubtedly the most employed controllers in industry. The last meeting dedicated to PID controllers has been organized by IFAC in 2000 in Terrassa (Spain). The workshop has been a great success and it has given a significant impulse in the research in PID controllers, as witnessed by the large number of papers published in the last ten years on this subject. The IFAC Conference on Advances in PID Controllers aims at gathering academic and industrial experts in the field in order to present the recent research developments in the design of PID controllers. In addition to provide the current state-of-the-art in the field, the meeting aims at providing a perspective of the future requirements for PID controllers in industry.
