disc is governed by a board consisting of representatives of the 3TU’s, the other universities, and an external member. The daily operation of disc is directed by the scientific director, who is assisted by the disc secretariat.
The disc advisory board, composed of leading representatives from industrial, university and societal bodies, meets once a year with the disc board to discuss issues concerning strategy and policy.

The 33th Benelux Meeting on Systems and Control will be held from March 25-27 2014 at CenterParcs Heijderbos, Heijen, The Netherlands.
A nation-wide institute that links all academic research groups in systems and control theory and engineering in the Netherlands, ranging from the three universities of technology: TUDelft, TUEindhoven and UTwente, to research groups in Amsterdam, Groningen, Maastricht, Tilburg and Wageningen.

disc has a coordinated research programme and provides an international network environment for researchers and PhD students.

A central PhD program is provided for PhD students in systems and control. It consists of a course programme offered in Utrecht, international summer schools and a yearly three-day Benelux Meeting. Since its start in 1987 this PhD program has become a cornerstone of the cooperation among the dutch academic community in this field.

Controlling the positioning and motion of objects with high speed and ultra-high precision (up to nanometers) is crucial in storage equipment as dvd’s, hard disk drives, in IC manufacturing and in scientific imaging instruments as AFM’s. Without feedback control this technology would not exist.

Industrial production processes in (petro)chemical, food and energy industry are dependent on appropriate control technology for designing operations that are economically efficient, safe, with optimal usage of resources and minimal environmental load. Model-based control technology provides the tools for achieving this.

Future automotive systems will show vehicles where comfort and driving conditions are highly automated while they are intelligently supervised to keep optimal distance and to optimize route planning. In this development distributed sensing and control is a key technology.

Guidance and navigation of airplanes and spacecrafts highly depends on automatic control systems. This dependency is even more pronounced when steering unmanned vehicles, e.g. for inspection tasks, or controlling (micro) sattelite formations in space. Aerospace applications have been important drivers for developing advanced and robustly operating control systems.
