This volume contains 73 papers, presenting the state of the art in computer-aided design in control systems (CADCS). The latest information and exchange of ideas presented at the Symposium illustrates the development of computer-aided design science and technology within control systems. The Proceedings contain six plenary papers and six special invited papers, and the remainder are divided into five themes: CADCS packages; CADCS software and hardware; systems design methods; CADCS expert systems; CADCS applications, with finally a discussion on CADCS in education and research.


For control engineers and systems designers.
