Invitation to the IFAC Symposium on System Identification, Boston, USA, July 17-18, 2024

The 20th IFAC Symposium on System Identification will be held Wednesday through Friday, July 17–18 at Northeastern University in Boston, MA. The scope of the symposium covers all major aspects of system identification, machine learning techniques for decision and control of dynamical processes, experimental modeling, signal processing, adaptive control and reinforcement learning. Theoretical, methodological and scientific developments involve a large variety of application areas. To enhance the applications and industrial perspective of the symposium, participation from industry is particularly encouraged. For more information about the topics, see the call for papers.
