The MACC recently held its 26th annual Meeting & Workshop, entitled "Best Practices in Control and Optimization - from R&D to Industrial Implementation". Speakers included McMaster Professors Chris Swartz, Thomas A. Adams II, Vlad Mahalec, and Prashant Mhaskar; industrial member speakers from Exxon Mobil, Johnson Control, and ProSensus; special guest speakers Dr. Ali Cinar (IIT), Dr. Lotfi Belkhir (Walter Booth School of Engineering Practice at McMaster), and Dr. Danielle Zyngier at Hatch. In addition, we featured our first graduate student speakers, which were well received.
As always, members can download the slides and workshop materials from the secure-side of our website.
