Scope and Topics

The seminar is a satellite event of the IFAC Workshop "Generalized Solutions of control problems" (GSCP-2004)

It is intended to discuss the following topics:

  • Approximate methods for optimal control problems
  • Iterative methods of control improvement
  • Turnpike solutions in approximate global optimization
  • Parallel computations in optimal control problems
  • Geometric methods for path planning
  • Applications in flight control
  • Applications in technology
  • Applications in economics and sustainable development problems and other close topics.


The official languages of the Seminar are English and Russian. All presentation materials and proceedings should be prepared in English.

Call for papers:

Submission of abstracts in text or TeX formats. Here are the style file and template:
  • model.pdf
  • elsart.cls
  • Template.tex

    Prospective authors should submit an extended abstract of their paper to NOC by e-mail (gscp@cprc.botik.ru) or by regular mail together with the registration form. The length of the abstract should be within two typed pages. The cover page should contain:

    1) title

    2) authors' names

    3) affiliation and address, fax-number, e-mail address, telephone number. In the case of joint authorship, the first name mentioned will be used for all correspondence, unless otherwise requested. The Latex file of the paper have to be submitted to NOC by e-mail or at the registration desk.

    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.

    Seminar Venue

    The Seminar 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.

    Registration fee

    Registration fee is $US 200. It covers cultural program, official reception, coffee-breaks, publication of proceedings and should be paid at the registration desk.
    Reduced registration fee for students is $US 100.
