Important notice - SCP 2020 will run on-line

We regret to inform that under the force of COVID-19 circumstances and the remaining international travel restrictions the SCP 2020 organizers decided to run a fully virtual conference. We will do our best to keep the conference program as planned:

  • all the registered authors will be given the possibility to present their contributions and participate to discussions about these;
  • all presented manuscripts will be included into SCP'20 proceedings to be published by Springer.

About the conference

The "Stability and Control Processes Conference" is an international conference dedicated to the 90th anniversary of V.I. Zubov (1930-2000), professor, corresponding member of RAS.

Vladimir Zubov made a great contribution to the development of the qualitative theory of differential equations, the theory of rigid body motion, the optimal control theory, and the theory of electromagnetic fields. He led the development of a wide range of issues related to the theory of control systems, such as questions of motion stability, nonlinear oscillations in control systems, navigation and reliability of control devices, vibration theory, and quantization of orbits.

Based on deep research in the field of applied mathematics and control processes, the following organizational units were formed under the leadership of V.I. Zubov: the Laboratory of Theory of Control Devices and Mechanisms (1962), the Department of Control Theory (1967), the Faculty of Applied Mathematics and Control Processes (1969), and the Research Institute of Computational Mathematics and Control Processes (1971). V.I. Zubov is the founder of the Center for Applied Mathematics and Control Processes. By the decision of the USSR Government in 1969, he was appointed the acting dean of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics and Control Processes.

The conference is held once every five years. The last three conferences, that took place in 2005, 2010 and 2015, attracted great attention from Russian and foreign scientists. Conference topics are concerned with ways in which V.I. Zubov conducted his research, and cover almost all the fundamental areas of modern applied mathematics and control processes, as well as continue to expand in line with the development of science. New sections on current areas of research are organized.

Proceedings of SCP conference in 2015 were published in IEEE Xplore Digital library
