Welcome to IFAC LSS 2022
The 16th IFAC Symposium on Large Scale Complex Systems: Theory and Applications (IFAC LSS 2022) is a core triennial event of IFAC Technical Committee on Large Scale Complex Systems. The Symposium is to discuss new developments in methodologies and techniques useful in handling complexity in analysis, modelling, control and optimization of large scale complex systems. The methodologies and tools for the complexity analysis are to be among the key issues of the Symposium. A number of application areas will be addressed. Special attention will be paid to large scale complex systems which are closely connected with the human daily’s life, such as urban traffic systems, autonomous systems, water systems, environmental systems, power supply systems, etc. The IFAC LSS 2022, organized by the Northwestern Polytechnical University (NWPU) will be held in Xi'an, Shaanxi, China.
