The 13th Data Driven Control and Learning Systems Conference

       The Data Driven Control and Learning Systems Conference (DDCLS) is jointly organized by the Data Driven Control, Learning, and Optimization Committee of the Chinese Association of Automation and Qingdao University, co-sponsored by the IEEE Beijing Section. The conference aims to provide an academic exchange platform for domestic and international scholars and engineers in the fields of data-driven control, learning, and optimization, exchanging the latest theoretical and technological achievements. After comprehensive assessment and evaluation by the DDCLS organizing committee, it decided that the 13th IEEE Data Driven Control and Learning Systems Conference (DDCLS'24), will be held in Kaifeng, Henan, from May 17th to 19th, 2024 and locally organized by Henan University. The conference will feature keynote addresses, distinguished lectures, oral reports, and poster presentations. Currently, the DDCLS organizing committee is actively arranging various conference preparations, and detailed information is continuously being updated. Please visit the conference website at for more conference information.
       Thank you for your attention and support for the DDCLS conference! We look forward to meeting you in Kaifeng, the ancient capital of the Eight Dynasties from May 17th to 19th, 2024! Once again, thank you for your support and understanding!
