Call for Papers

  POSTA2018 aims to provide a forum for scientists and engineers over the world to present their new theoretical results and techniques in the field of positive systems. POSTA2018 will host plenary invited sessions on a range of topics concerning positive systems as well as original contributed papers.
    Invited speakers must send an extended abstract to the program committee member in charge of the corresponding session. After the acceptance notification, the invited speakers may prepare a full paper version of their contribution for inclusion in the Conference proceedings. This step is however not mandatory. The proceedings will be published in the Springer LNCIS Series after the conference. All accepted papers with registration will be indexed in Scopus and EI-Compendex, while abstract submissions will be scheduled for presentations, but not be published in the Springer LNCIS Series.
      Contributed papers must be prepared following the Springer one-column format, and should not be less than the length of 6 (six) Letter-sized pages; the Authors may use LaTeX  template when preparing their drafts. Papers should be submitted through Paper Submission Site before the paper submission deadline. Papers must be submitted in PDF format, with fonts embedded. Accepted papers will be presented either in appropriate sessions for contributed papers or in an invited session. Authors may submit an Abstract to attend POSTA2018 without publishing a full-length article in the proceedings. All contributed papers will be included in the Conference proceedings. Also, it is strongly suggested that the authors pay attention to the repetition rate of the paper. It may reflect the indexing if the paper has high repetition.

Topics of interest will include, but not be limited to, the following:

  • Positive systems with delay
  • Hybrid positive systems
  • Stochastic realization theory and positive systems
  • Dynamic analysis and control synthesis of positive distributed parameter systems
  • Monotone dynamical systems theory and applications in mathematical biology, game theory, and other fields
  • Recent mathematical developments for networked systems in biology, chemistry and social sciences
  • Linear and nonlinear positive operators and their applications
  • Biological systems with positive variables and positive controls
  • Machine learning approaches to positive systems
  • Boolean network
  • Smart cities and positivity
  • Iterated function systems
  • Dimensioning problems for collaborative systems
  • Matrix analysis and its applications in nonnegative dynamic processes and/or positive multidimensional systems
