The ANR ChaSlim project (Inria Grenoble Rhône-Alpes, IRCCyN Nantes, Inria Lille)  is organizing a spring school on sliding-mode control from the 8th to 12th June 2015, Aussois, France.

Sliding-mode control is one of the most popular feedback control technique, born more than 50 years ago. It is known for its simplicity of implementation, and its nice robustness properties. Roughly speaking, sliding-mode control takes the form of a set-valued, discontinuous input, and consequently yields a set-valued closed-loop dynamical system (the most well-known matematical formalism being Filippov’s differential inclusions). Its major drawback is the possible existence of the so-called chattering phenomenon, a highly unwanted effect that takes the form of high-frequency oscillations, both in the regulated output and in the control variable. Recently several solutions have been investigated to drastically reduce, or even almost suppress, the chattering phenomenon (in both continuous and discrete-time implementations).

During this school, various aspects of sliding-mode control will be tackled : sliding-mode control of infinite-dimensional systems; sliding state observers; high-order sliding-mode controllers; adaptive gains; discrete-time implementation; sliding modes in genetic networks; and with deep analysis of several applications in robotics, electro-pneumatic systems, etc.

The school is intended for Students (Master, PhD, post-doc), and Researchers from universities and private companies. The required background is basics of Automatic Control.
