We are happy to invite you to the 7th Edition of the Workshop on Nonlinear System Identification Benchmarks held as an in-person event in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, 19-21 April 2023. The workshop is also followed by a mini-course on nonlinear system identification, 24-25 April 2023.
This year again, the workshop is building upon its basic ingredients:
It stands as a forum facilitating the exchange of ideas and knowledge between the control, machine learning, and mechanical engineering communities.
A selection of renowned keynote speakers from the same 3 communities is invited to share with the audience their views on the future trends in the data-driven modeling for nonlinear dynamical systems. A preliminary list of this year’s speakers is:
(1) Steve Brunton, University of Washington, USA.
Tentative Title: Machine Learning for Scientific Discovery, with Examples in Fluid Mechanics
(2) Olga Fink, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne, Switzerland
Tentative Title: Fusing physics-based and deep learning algorithms for fault diagnostics and prognostics
(3) Wouter Kouw, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands.
Tentative Title: Variational Bayesian Inference for System Identification
(4) Dario Piga, IDSIA - Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence Research, Switzerland
Tentative Title: Deep learning for system identification, and viceversa.
Furthermore, a special session on the occasion of Johan Schoukens' 65th birthday is organized on the 2nd day of the workshop. Short presentations highlighting different aspects of system identification and Johan's contribution to the field will be given by Paul Van den Hof, Tadeusz Dobrowiecki, Tom Oomen, Mark Runacres, and Bart De Moor.
Interested attendees are challenged to apply their favorite data-driven modeling tool to a carefully established list of benchmark systems and present their results as a regular presentation during the workshop. The list of benchmarks has recently been upgraded, and today 12 different benchmarks are proposed, addressing a wide range of state-of-the-art challenges in the field with various levels of difficulties.
A 2-day course on nonlinear system identification takes place after the workshop (24-25 April).
The workshop is open to both presenting and non-presenting participants. Contributions are expected to present the outcome of their favorite system identification approach on one or more of the benchmark datasets. The workshop is organized as an in-person event.
Early registration deadline: Wednesday, February 15 March 1, 2023
Abstract submission deadline: Wednesday, March 15, 2023 – send to email@example.com - 1-page abstract, template available here. Regular contributions are expected to apply their approach to one of the featured benchmark datasets.
