MACC Hosts 25th Annual Meeting and Workshop

The MACC Celebrated 25 years with the largest Annual Meeting and Workshop to date, boasting record attendance and evidence of its continued growth, impact, and success.

This year's keynote speaker was Manfred Morari from ETH Zurich in Switzerland, who delivered a riveting talk about how control and optimization could be used in the chemical, automotive, electrical, and computer industries. The workshop featured industry talks from Michael Dudzic (ArcelorMittal Dofasco), Prof. Christos Maravelias (University of Wisconsin), James Downs (Eastman Chemical Company), Jeffrey Renfro (Honeywell Process Solutions), and of course, the MACC professors as well.
