The conference will be held at the Australian National University in the centre of town with ample accommodation and opportunity for fine dining.


NOLCOS is acknowledged as the major international gathering of leading experts in the field of nonlinear control from industry and academia.  With advances in science, technology and computing the importance of the theory and applications of nonlinear control systems has grown in importance. The plenary and semi-plenary program consists of a group of exceptional speakers and scientists to provide both a perspective on the state-of-the-art and a vision of the future of the field.  Invited sessions and quality papers provide the next generation of results.  NOLCOS 2022 is also a forum for young scientists from all over the world.  A student best paper session will showcase the best and brightest of future students in nonlinear systems and control and the friendly and relaxed atmosphere of the conference provides an ideal opportunity to network.

The program committee solicits the following contributions:

Manuscripts outlining original results or applications in the broad field of nonlinear control systems.  Page limit of 6 pages.  All manuscripts will be fully internationally reviewed.  All accepted papers will be orally presented at the conference.
