The objective of this workshop is to provide an international forum for the discussion of recent developments and advances in the field of mathematical investigation of generalized solutions (GS) in control problems: discontinuous, impulse, sliding modes, minimizing sequences, etc. including those ones for distributed systems. In-depth discussions of the relevant theories and applications by competent experts of this field are expected.

Copyright conditions

The material submitted for presentation at an IFAC meeting (congress, symposium, conference, workshop) must be original, not published or being considered elsewhere. All papers accepted for presentation will appear in the volume of Proceedings of the meeting that will be distributed to the participants. The presented papers will be further screened for possible publication in the IFAC Journals (Automatica, Control Engineering Practice, Annual Reviews in Control, Journal of Process Control and Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence), or in IFAC affiliated journals. All papers presented will be recorded on the IFAC Publications website (

Copyright of material presented at an IFAC meeting is held by IFAC. Authors will be sent a copyright transfer form. The IFAC Journals and, after these, IFAC affiliated journals have priority access to all contributions presented. However, if the author is not contacted by an editor of these journals, within three months after the meeting, he/she is free to re-submit the material for publication elsewhere. In this case, the paper must carry a reference to the IFAC meeting where it was originally presented.

Conference Venue

The Workshop will be held in Pereslavl-Zalessky, an ancient Russian town located on the Golden Ring of Russia within 130 km from Moscow, on the shore of the famous Plestcheevo lake.
