2019 ACC: Call for Invited Papers for Energy Storage and Conversion Systems

The Energy Systems Technical Committee (ESTC) of the ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Division, and the IEEE Technical Committee on Automotive Controls (TCAC) and Smart Grids (TC-SG) of the IEEE Control Systems Society are organizing invited session(s) on “Energy Storage and Conversion Systems” at the 2019 American Control Conference.

Contributions are solicited in the area of “Energy Storage and Conversion Systems” with emphasis on modeling, estimation, control, diagnostics and optimization.

The draft paper or extended summary is due by September 12, 2018 and should be submitted via email to Satadru Dey (satadru.dey@ucdenver.edu), Scott Moura (smoura@berkeley.edu), Xinfan Lin (lxflin@ucdavis.edu), Dyche Anderson (Rander34@ford.com), Yasha Parvini (parvini@udmercy.edu), Hector Perez (heperez@berkeley.edu), and Youngki Kim (youngki@umich.edu).
