International Federation of Automatic Control: Symposium on System Identification SYSID 2000
June 21, 2000, Fess Parker’s Doubletree Resort, Santa Barbara
The Symposium on System Identification is IFAC’s longest running, and largest, symposium. It is without doubt the premier forum for the presentation of research and application results in our field. SYSID is held every three years and the previous U.S. location was Baltimore in 1982. Santa Barbara is the ideal location for SYSID’s return to the U.S., being centrally located in California with close connections to a large number of active research centers; some local, some further afield. A total of 291 manuscripts were submitted to SYSID 2000. Each was sent to at least two members of the International Program Committee who were responsible for obtaining reviews. The final program contains 226 papers. Of these 183 will be presented in a lecture format, 28 will be given in poster sessions and 15 are software demonstrations.
