The objective is to bring together the specialists in the field of Time Delay Systems. High level contributions on the many aspects of this research area ranging from theory over numerics to various applications, are awaited. Contributions on related domains will be considered with great interest, provided they contain relations with Time Delay Systems.
Industrial participants and junior researchers are particularly welcome.


-Modelling and identification
-Stability and stabilisation
-Robustness issues
-Filtering and estimation
-Control schemes
-Infinite dimensional systems
-Numerical methods
-Applications (engineering, physics, biology, economics)
