The 6th International Conference on Positive Systems (POSTA2018) will take place at Hangzhou Dianzi University, Hangzhou, China from August 25th to 27th, 2018. As with previous conference, the scope of POSTA2018 will cover a wide range of topics from theory to applications of positive systems. Talks presenting new results as well as surveying recent work are welcome. The POSTA proceedings will be published in the Springer LNCIS Series after the conference. Previous editions of the conference were held in Rome, Italy (2003), Grenoble, France (2006), Valencia, Spain (2009), Maynooth, Ireland (2012) and Rome, Italy (2016).
Conference topics include, but are not limited to, 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; 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.
