6th Workshop on Fractional Differentiation and Its Applications
Grenoble, France, February 4-6, 2013
This "Joint Conference" gathers all the activities of IFAC TC 2.2 Linear Control Systems: Control and structure, Time-delay systems and Fractional differentiation.
The aim is to bring together experts working in systems and control to discuss new trends, exchange new ideas, establish fruitful contacts, and promote interactions among the various fields of interest. Applications and industry papers are encouraged.
