Welcome Message

On behalf of the International Program Committee and the Organizing Committee of the 3rd International Conference on Control and Fault-Tolerant Systems, SysTol’2016, we welcome the participants of the conference to be held in Barcelona on September 7-9, 2016. The conference is sponsored by the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and its Research Center for Supervision, Safety and Automatic Control (CS2AC). It is technically cosponsored by IEEE Control System Society and IEEE Reliability Society and supported by the Spanish Committee of Automatic Control (CEA-IFAC).

Following the great success of and acceptance by the international community of control and technical diagnostics of the two previous editions (Systol’2010 and Systol’2013, both in Nice), SysTol Conferences are organized every three years between IFAC Symposia on Fault Detection, Supervision and Safety of Technical Processes (SAFEPROCESS). Previous Systol Conferences demonstrated the demand for establishing a continuous scientific forum in the general field of system monitoring, fault detection and diagnosis as well as fault-tolerant control.

The safe and reliable operation of technical systems is of great significance for the protection of human life and health as well as the environment, and of a vested economic value for supporting decision making or emergency actions and repairs. Moreover, in highly automated industrial systems where maintenance or repair cannot be carried out immediately, it is crucial to employ fault-tolerant control systems capable of ensuring acceptable performance even in the presence of faults.

The program of SysTol’2016 includes 16 regular and 8 invited sessions in 3 parallel tracks. Moreover, the program contains 2 plenary and 4 semi-plenary talks prepared by outstanding academic and industrial experts. We hope that those talks will give the participants the opportunity to share in the knowledge and experience of world-renowned scientists and experts in many exciting topics such as distributed fault diagnosis, integration of diagnosis and fault tolerant control, model-based fault diagnosis of wind turbines, model-free approaches to fault-tolerant control, robust fault detection using set-membership approaches and fault diagnosis needs and challenges in civil aircrafts.

We hope that you will find your participation in SysTol’2016 very stimulating and rewarding. Moreover, we believe that a few days’ stay in Barcelona and other parts of Catalonia will give you an opportunity to enjoy and to learn more about the city and the region.

We would like to thank all members of the International Program Committee for their excellent work in ensuring a high quality of the conference program. Special thanks go to members of the Organizing Committee for their hard work that made it possible to organize this international scientific event.

We wish all participants to enjoy the 3rd International Conference on Control and Fault-Tolerant Systems, SysTol’2016 and a pleasant stay in Barcelona.
