Welcome to IFAC LSS 2016
The 14th IFAC Symposium on Large Scale Complex Systems: Theory and Applications (IFAC LSS 2016) 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 2016, organized by the University of California, Riverside (UCR) will be held in Riverside, CA, USA. The historic City of Riverside is noted for its palm-lined avenues and its mild climate. Riverside is located near Los Angeles and San Diego, with easy access to beaches, mountain resorts, desert recreational areas, world famous amusement parks, cultural activities, shopping, and many attractions.
