History

Since the late 80’s of the 20th century (for many years) technical diagnostics has been the area of major scientific interests and intensive research.

It covers many well-established topics as well as emerging developments in control and systems engineering, robotics, aerospace, applied mathematics and statistics, decision sciences, signal processing and artificial intelligence. At the same time, a growing number of applications of different fault diagnosis methods, especially in electrical, mechanical, chemical and medical areas can be observed. The rapidly increasing complexity of automation in the industry and the continuing need to ensure reliability and safety at the possibly highest level require ongoing research and development of innovative approaches to diagnosis of failures or faults. Thus the main subject matter of the DPS conference series is related to the expectations and demands of research and industrial centers for modern and safe diagnostics systems, process monitoring systems and expert systems.

The International Conference on Diagnostics of Processes and Systems (DPS) has been organized every two years since 1996 by the Warsaw University of Technology, the University of Zielona Góra and the Gdañsk University of Technology. In fact, the conference series is a continuation of annual conferences on Diagnostics of Industrial Processes organized in the years 1996-1999.

The conference series provides an excellent forum for exchanging knowledge and experience, and for sharing solutions within the academic and industrial communities. An important task of this forum is the integration of scientists, engineers and managers from different branches of industry and services (like chemistry, power systems, machine tools, manufacturing, nutritive industry, medicine, biotechnology, environmental protection, etc.) as well as the makers of hardware and software for computer control and diagnostic systems. The subject area of the DPS conferences corresponds to the topic of the IFAC symposia on Fault Detection, Supervision and Safety for Technical Processes (SAFEPROCESS), as well as to the newly established international conferences of Control and Fault-Tolerant Systems (SysTol).
