CAO 2018 is the serial 17th workshop of the IFAC Technical Committee on Optimal Control (TC 2.4). It is aimed at overviewing the latest advantages in the theory of optimal control, especially, in the field of applications of new methods and numerical algorithms to solving problems in industry, robotics, mechatronics, powerand energy systems, economics, finance and ecology. It will give an opportunity to specialists in optimal control, differential games and optimization to share their experience with practitioners, discuss new arising problems, outline scientific and commercial applications, and describe new research directions.

One of the goals of the workshop is to bring together researchers and engineers, applied economists and environmental scientists, and to give an up to date view of the major applications of optimization for control purposes and for decision making in economy and industry.

Working language of the Workshop is English. The program of the Workshop is planned to include 20-minute regular talks.
