3 Greetings from the NOC and IPC Chairs It is our pleasure to welcome you to the 2015 IFAC Symposium on Advanced Control of Chemical Processes (ADCHEM 2015) in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada on behalf of the National Organizing Committee and International Program Committee. ADCHEM, one of the triennial meetings of the International Federation of Automatic Control, brings together researchers and practitioners to discuss recent developments in the control of chemical, biochemical, and related process systems. The program accommodates contributions from various application areas and methodologies including those outside the classical chemical process control. Special focus is put this year towards oil production as well as topics related to energy. Based on a rigorous reviewing process, the International Program Committee selected 216 papers for presentation. The program consists of 21 regular sessions, 4 invited sessions, 2 poster sessions, 1 roundtable discussion session, 12 keynote lectures (of which 5 are invited keynotes and 7 are selected from the contributions), and 3 plenary sessions. Following the tradition of ADCHEM, each morning begins with a plenary talk. Each day 4 keynotes are delivered, 2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon. The regular and invited sessions are split in four parallel tracks, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Poster presentations take place on Monday and Tuesday afternoon. The program is complemented by a roundtable discussion on Monday afternoon and very interesting preconference workshops that take place on Sunday, June 7. The social program consists of an opening reception on Sunday evening, a tour of the Squamish Lil wat Cultural Centre on Monday evening, the conference banquet on Tuesday evening, and a closing reception on Wednesday. The excellence of the program would not be possible without tremendous contributions of the NOC and IPC members, secretaries, invited session organizers, associate editors who organized review of the papers, and all the reviewers. We would also like to acknowledge the tremendous support from our conference sponsors. ADCHEM 2015 is sponsored by the IFAC Technical Committee on Chemical Process Control and co-sponsored by the IFAC Technical Committees on Non-linear Control Systems, Biosystems and Bioprocesses, and Fault Detection, Supervision and Safety of Technical Processes. All participants are invited to explore the wonderful landscape and nature of Whistler. Special guided tours and trips are planned following the afternoon sessions. There will be a number of volunteers throughout the conference who will be happy to provide help. Please do not hesitate to stop at the conference registration desk or contact any volunteer if you have questions or need help. We hope you will enjoy your stay in beautiful Whistler, British Columbia. Best regards, Biao Huang (NOC chair), on behalf of the NOC Rolf Findeisen (IPC chair), on behalf of the IPC 2

8 2. Process monitoring in the era of big data Joe Qin The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen Abstract: The recent interest in big data has shown up in almost all aspects of knowledge discovery; including engineering, medicine, business, commerce, finance, and even science to benefit from the power of big data. The Internet of Things, smart and wireless sensors, wireless communications, mobile devices, smart devices, and smart manufacturing make data an abundant source of information from which to derive knowledge and make decisions. For process engineering systems where processes, units, and equipment are designed with well-specified purposes under well-controlled operations, mechanistic models and principles are dependable. However, for the operation of emerging or abnormal situations that are not expected in the design, data become indispensable assets for the decision-making in safe and efficient operations. In this plenary we offer a perspective on the essence of process data analytics, how data have been effectively used in process operations and control, and new perspectives on how process systems operations might evolve to a paradigm of data-enhanced operations and control. In particular the focus is on the latent structure modeling of high dimensional and massive amount of data from which to explore interesting latent data structures for the purpose of process data analytics, including abnormal condition monitoring, inferential estimation, and predictions based on principal auto- and cross- correlations. The concept of principal time series modeling will be introduced. To conclude the talk, we give a future perspective in exploring the power of new machine learning techniques that have enjoyed tremendous development in two decades. Biography: Dr. S.

9 3. Set-Theoretic Approaches in Analysis, Estimation and Control of Nonlinear Systems Benoit Chachuat Imperial College London Abstract: This paper gives an overview of recent developments in set-theoretic methods for nonlinear systems, with a particular focus on the activities in our own research group. Central to these approaches is the ability to compute tight enclosures of the range of multivariate systems, e.g. using ellipsoidal calculus or higher-order inclusion techniques based on multivariate polynomials, as well as the ability to propagate these enclosures to enclose the trajectories of parametric or uncertain differential equations. We illustrate these developments with a range of applications, including the reachability analysis of nonlinear dynamic systems; the determination of all equilibrium points and bifurcations in a given state-space domain; and the solution of setmembership parameter estimation problems. We close the paper with a discussion about on-going research in tube-based methods for robust model predictive control. Biography: Benoit Chachuat is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London and a member of the Centre of Process Systems Engineering (CPSE). He received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from National Polytechnic Institute of Lorraine (INPL) in 2001, and he held post-doctoral positions at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis ( ), MIT ( ), and EPFL ( ). Prior to joining Imperial College in 2010, Benoit was an Assistant Professor at McMaster University. He currently serves as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Process Control and the Journal of Optimization Theory & Applications. He is a recipient of the 2014 Outstanding Young Researcher Award and 2015 Director Award from the CAST division of AIChE. Benoit's primary research focus is on the development of new methods and tools for optimization and control of complex process systems, with emphasis on global optimization and optimization-based process control. Current application areas in his group are on sustainable microalgae culture systems and resource recovery from wastewater. 8

10 Keynote Talks 1. Providing Ancillary Service with Commercial Buildings: The Swiss Perspective (invited) Ioannis Lymperopoulos, EPFL, Switzerland Faran Ahmed Qureshi, EPFL, Switzerland Truong Nghiem, Univ. of Pennsylvania, USA Ali Ahmadi Khatir, Swissgrid Ltd, Laufenburg, Switzerland Colin N. Jones, EPFL, Switzerland Abstract: Ancillary services constitute the cornerstone of the power grid. They allow for an efficient system operation, provide resilience to uncertainties and establish safeguards against unprecedented events. Their importance is growing due to the rise of grid decentralisation and integration of intermittent, renewable power sources, which lead to more variability and uncertainty in the system. Today, the vast share of ancillary services is provided by large generating units. An ongoing effort by research and business entities focuses on using variation of loads connected to the power grid in order to increase significantly the provision of such services, hopefully at a reduced cost. We examine here, from an economic perspective, the use of commercial buildings as ancillary service providers based on real prices from the Swiss electricity market. We calculate the effect of retail electrical prices on the economic performance of a building and find that for the rates charged in the least expensive cantons a single building can reduce its overall energy costs, when participating in the ancillary services market. For the high end of prices this gradually becomes prohibitive but can be alleviated for a building that has a need for electricity during nighttime hours, as well as daytime. Finally, we show, the counter-intuitive result that providing ancillary services can increase the comfort levels of a building at a decreased cost. 2. On-Line Maximization of Biogas Production in an Anaerobic Reactor Using a Pseudo- Super-Twisting Controller Alejandro Vargas, Univ. Nacional Autonoma De Mexico-UNAM Jaime A. Moreno, Univ. Nacional Autonoma De Mexico-UNAM Abstract: We consider an apparently oversimplified first order model of an anaerobic digester operated as a CSTR, where the dilution rate is the controlled input and the biogas production rate is the measured output. The parameters of this model are considered slowly time-varying. The output function depends on the only state (the substrate), and at any instant has a unique maximum. We propose a simple output-feedback controller based on the super-twisting algorithm combined with a state machine, which converges in a practical sense to this maximum. The controller was tested by simulations of an anarobic digester, maximizing the biogas production rate, showing very good results. 3. Economic Optimization of Spray Dryer Operation Using Nonlinear Model Predictive Control with State Estimation Lars Norbert Petersen, Tech. Univ. of Denmark John B. Jørgensen, Tech. Univ. of Denmark James B. Rawlings, Univ. of Wisconsin at Madison, USA Abstract: In this paper, we develop an economically optimizing Nonlinear Model Predictive Controller (E-NMPC) for a complete spray drying plant with multiple stages. In the E-NMPC the initial state is estimated by an extended Kalman Filter (EKF) with noise covariances estimated by an autocovariance least squares method (ALS). We present a model for the spray drying plant and use this model for simulation as well as for prediction in the E-NMPC. The open-loop optimal control problem in the E-NMPC is solved using the single-shooting method combined with a quasi- Newton Sequential Quadratic Programming (SQP) algorithm and the adjoint method for computation of gradients. We evaluate the economic performance when unmeasured disturbances 9

11 are present. By simulation, we demonstrate that the E-NMPC improves the profit of spray drying by 17% compared to conventional PI control. 4. A Stable Two-Time Dimensional (2D) Model Predictive Control with Zero Terminal State Constraints for Constrained Batch Processes Jingyi Lu, Hong Kong Univ. of Sci. & Tech Zhixing Cao, Hong Kong Univ. of Sci. & Tech Furong Gao, Hong Kong Univ. of Sci. & Tech Abstract: Batch processes are of great importance in process industry. However, the control algorithm design is difficult for those with constraints. This is because stability and recursive feasibility along directions of time and batch should be guaranteed simultaneously. In this paper, a stable model predictive control strategy with zero terminal state constraints is proposed. Stability and recursive feasibility along two directions are guaranteed and proved. Simulation results are given to show the effectiveness of the algorithm. 5. Latent Variable Models and Big Data in the Process Industries (invited) John F. Macgregor, ProSensus, Inc Mark-John Bruwer, ProSensus, Inc Ivan Miletic, ProSensus, Inc Marlene Cardin, ProSensus, Inc Zheng Liu, ProSensus, Inc Abstract: In the process industries Big Data has been around since the introduction of computer control systems, advanced sensors, and databases. Although process data may not really be BIG in comparison to other areas such as communications, they are often complex in structure, and the information that we wish to extract from them is often subtle. Multivariate latent variable regression models offer many unique properties that make them well suited for the analysis of historical industrial data. These properties and use of these models are illustrated with applications to the analysis, monitoring. optimization and control of batch processes, and to the extraction of information from on-line multi-spectral images. 6. On the Design of Economic NMPC Based on an Exact Turnpike Property Timm Faulwasser, EPFL, Switzerland Dominique Bonvin, EPFL, Switzerland Abstract: We discuss the design of sampled-data economic nonlinear model predictive control schemes for continuous-time systems. We present novel sufficient convergence conditions that do not require any kind of terminal constraints nor terminal penalties. Instead, the proposed convergence conditions are based on an exact turnpike property of the underlying optimal control problem. We prove that, in the presence of state constraints, the existence of an exact turnpike implies recursive feasibility of the optimization. We draw upon the example of optimal fish harvest to illustrate our findings. 7. Analysis of Problems Induced by Imprecise Dating of Measurements in Oil and Gas Production Nicolas Petit, MINES ParisTech, France Abstract: In this paper we discuss the negative impact on monitoring algorithms of working with imprecisely dated data. Two examples from the world of the oil & gas industry are presented and serve to illustrate that this problem can be of practical importance. First analytical results show that when signals with significant time variations are monitored, the impact of dating of measurements can be as troublesome (or even worse) than measurement noises. 8. A Multiobjective Optimization Perspective on the Stability of Economic MPC (invited) 10

12 Victor M. Zavala, Argonne National Lab, USA Abstract: We interpret economic MPC as a scheme that trades off economic performance and stability. We use this notion to design an economic MPC controller that exploits the inherent robustness of a stable auxiliary MPC controller to enhance economic performance. Specifically, we incorporate a flexible stabilizing constraint to the economic MPC formulation that preserves stability of the auxiliary controller. We use multiobjective optimization concepts to argue that the dual variable of the stabilizing constraint can be interpreted as a price of stability and we establish an equivalence between the proposed controller and regularized economic MPC controllers. We demonstrate that nontrivial gains in economic performance can be achieved without compromising stability. 9. Control Challenges in Synthetic Biology (invited) Christopher V. Rao, Univ. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Abstract: Automation is increasingly being employed in the life sciences. New control problems are arising as a result, few with simple off-the-shelf solutions. This paper discusses some of the scheduling and control problems associated with automation in synthetic biology. It specifically focuses on the challenges associated with robotics, drawing heavily from our own experiences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. No solution are presented and only the problems discussed. The goal is to motivate research in the process systems engineering community to solve problems in this new field. 10. Zone Model Predictive Control and Moving Horizon Estimation for the Regulation of Blood Glucose in Critical Care Patients Timothy Knab, Univ. of Pittsburgh Gilles Clermont, Univ. of Pittsburgh Robert S. Parker, Univ. of Pittsburgh Abstract: Critically ill patients commonly suffer from stress hyperglycemia, or elevated glucose levels, following injury or disease. Hypoglycemia, or low glucose level, is a frequent and serious complication of treating hyperglycemia. In order to reduce the incidence of hyper- and hypoglycemia, a linear zone model-predictive controller with moving horizon state estimation and output regulation is developed. Critical care patient data from an observational study was used to construct virtual patients. Closed-loop control in these virtual patients, versus clinical standard of practice, results in a substantial increase in time spent in the target glucose zone and significant reductions in both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia. Overall, the proposed controller significantly enhances targeted glucose control in critically ill patients in silico, which may translate to improved clinical decision making and patient outcomes in the clinic. 11. Artificial Pancreas: From In-Silico to In-Vivo (invited) Mirko Messori, Univ. of Pavia, Italy Claudio Cobelli, Univ. of Padova, Italy Lalo Magni, Univ. of Pavia, Italy Abstract: Type 1 diabetes is a disease caused by an autoimmune reaction. The Artificial Pancreas (AP) is an automatic closed-loop system composed of a subcutaneous glucose sensor, a subcutaneous insulin pump and a device on which a control algorithm and a human interface are implemented. The last years have seen an accelerated improvement of these three components that became more reliable and compact, making the system safer, wearable, and usable in real life. An overview on AP and its components is presented together with an introduction on the insilico tools used to develop and tune the control algorithm and to make pre-clinical tests. Particular attention is devoted to the design of a Model Predictive Control, to the choice of the model and of the constraints, and to the definition of the most relevant performance indices. Most of the choices have been driven by the experience gained by both in-silico and in-vivo trials. In-silico experiments 11

13 involved thousand of hours of simulations on the Food and Drug Administration accepted simulator equipped with 100 adult virtual patients. In-vivo experiments, of which a complete list is presented, involved about forty thousand hours of trials, first, conducted in a clinical environment and, then, at home. 12. Design of a Smart Adaptive Control System Takuya Kinoshita, Hiroshima Univ., Japan Toru Yamamoto, Hiroshima Univ., Japan Abstract: In industrial processes, it is necessary to maintain the user-specified control performance in order to achieve desired productivity. This paper describes a design scheme of smart adaptive controller based on mentioned strategy. In our proposed method, variance of control error and input are evaluated on-line. Moreover, control parameters are adjusted only when the user-specified control performance is not obtained. Control parameters are calculated directly from closed-loop data and they are adjusted by 1-parameter tuning. The effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by using a simulation example and experiment of temperature control system. 12

45 Interview with Plenary Speakers Interview with Dr. Barry Cott Q: What is your educational background and current occupation? Barry: I hold Bachelor s, Master s and Ph.D. degrees in chemical engineering, specializing primarily in the topic of process control. I currently work at Shell, and I have been doing so since I graduated from my Ph.D. program over 25 years ago. I am the general manager of the Process Automation, Control and Optimization software team, within an organization known as Technical and Competitive IT (TaCIT). TaCIT sits at the boundary of engineering and IT where people with hybrid skills can be fully leveraged. I supervise approximately 60 people who work on key technologies for our next-generation Advanced Process Control Technology, and I will be discussing our work in that area during the ADCHEM conference. Another area in which I am heavily involved is the cybersecurity aspects around control and safety systems. Q: Could you next briefly touch on your childhood: where you were born, went to school, what your favourite subjects were, and whether you had any role models? Barry: I grew up on the west side of Toronto. My father was a professor at Ryerson University in Toronto for many years. As a child, I remember sitting at the back of his classrooms, drawing with my crayons during his chemistry exams and midterms. Unsurprisingly, I followed his footsteps, to some extent, into the field of chemistry. Therefore, chemical engineering as an interest was a clear and logical choice. A key turning point occurred during my 3 rd year process control class with Dr Gerry Sullivan, who was a new professor at the University of Waterloo at the time. Out of all the professors and experts I met in my generation, he was one who shifted the topic of process control from an abstract, mathematical form to more of a hands-on exercise. Back in 1983, we had primitive computers, but we were still able to run simple simulations on process control systems. After undergrad, I did my Master s in control with Gerry at Waterloo, and a Ph.D. in the UK at Imperial College right after that. I worked with Sandro Macchietto on real-time scheduling and automation technology for batch processes. Q: Could you describe how your graduate education prepared you for your lifetime achievements? Barry: At Waterloo, we were in a cooperative education setup: I went to school for 4 months and worked for 4 months in a repetitive cycle. During my bachelor s, I was working in the continuous-time process control field, doing work for a company (which would now be Nova Chemicals) on control of distillation columns. When I moved to Imperial College, batch processing was popular at that time, and I worked on detailed scheduling of resources in real-time. One highlight would be my work in the cheese and yogurt manufacturing industries, and I have a particularly interesting story to share about that. We had visitors at Imperial College, one of whom was Margaret Thatcher, and I was able to present my work on the control of cheese and yogurt manufacturing processes to her. At the end of the event, people took pictures of me and Margaret Thatcher discussing cottage cheese and yogurt. Q: What recent progressions have you made in your career for the last 25 years? Barry: After I finished my Ph.D., I considered taking a faculty position somewhere. My interests were in the area of Model Predictive Control (MPC). I felt that the application of the concept was still behind: the rate at which these sophisticated concepts were implemented in industry was behind the rate at which they were being developed. I was initially offered a position in southern Ontario to become a process control engineer, because industrial work made sense initially after studying for so many years. I started as a technical specialist, and worked for about 14 years with increasing responsibility, as an expert in Advanced Process Control. In 2003, I moved to the US to oversee the team developing and deploying Shell s advanced process control technologies. The team worked out detailed algorithms on MPC, state estimation, and other concepts. We were also involved with the software development aspects as well, such as implementing control technology into Windows, Distributed Control Systems (DCSs), historians, etc. In 2008, I moved to the Netherlands and managed the regional PACO engineering team for five years before taking up my current role. Q: In your perspective, what major gaps between academics and industry must be bridged over the next few years? 44

46 Barry: I think the biggest problem, for students and industrialists alike, is how to deal with the size and scale of problems that we face today. Most graduate students work with 2x2 systems, but in industry people work with 50x50 systems or larger. This makes the task of solving the dynamic and control laws involved extremely challenging. The field of data analytics and mining require computer scientists and hybrid researchers who look at dynamic data with respect to large-scale problems. Engineers should focus not only on the mathematical details behind algorithms, but also consider the impacts of implementation. In some cases, even if the mathematic background is sound, the algorithm may perform unexpectedly in real-time. We also have to consider the impact of data sizes on the quality of data and predictions, which calls for tighter management and scheduling of resources. As managers, we find that people that work at the boundaries of algorithms, software design, database design, and real-time systems are incredibly competitive in these areas. Q: You mentioned the importance of data analysis and massive volumes of data being generated in the manufacturing industry. Big data has become a buzz word these days, especially in companies such as Google, Facebook, etc. Much research is being conducted using machine learning algorithms. Do you somehow see these ideas and algorithms having an impact on the large volumes of data that we generate in the manufacturing industry, and where do you think the greatest impact is going to be? In my opinion, the recent focus has primarily been on designing controllers and models, and on process analytics, but I rarely encounter people who try to integrate data that is being generated in the different MPC layers in the industry. Do you have any comments on that? Barry: Sure. The paper I wrote demonstrates an example where a MPC was built to put online, and the control engineer knows, at any moment in time, where the setpoints and constraints on the process variables are, as well as any future projections. All these aspects amount to a large volume of data. Trying to deal with one small part of it is already challenging enough. Back in 2007, we took a look at representing these plant states in the form of Markov chains to answer questions like How does an engineer analyze the data to tell whether the plant is hanging around the expected constraint points, and whether the disturbances are returning to the right points? Generally we discovered that interpreting what the dataset was dynamically was not trivial. One novel way to approach this problem is not to mathematically aggregate all of the data, but rather to ask what large sections of data tell about the system. Today, we have metrics to determine whether the quality of the MPC model is affecting predictions. As I mentioned before, I think the approach should be more towards analyzing the data in separate sections, and using tools like Partial Least Squares (PLS) to extract interesting information. Q: Do you have any specific career goals and motivations in life that help you progress through your career? Barry: What continues to drive me is deployment of technology across the business to unlock value. The whole concept of mixing technologies and implementing hybrid solutions as a business has always been attractive to me. The goal is not just to make money for the business, but also to make products with the lowest energy footprint. For example, Shell has plenty of liquefied natural gas plants throughout the world; how can we ensure that we use minimal energy processes to liquefy natural gas? Technology doesn t always develop itself; sometimes you have to create the right environment in order for individuals to apply their strengths to the fullest. Implementing a good idea in a small vicinity of a company (such as Shell) may be an easy task, but trying to introduce change to the whole company can easily require a 5-year program. The process needs to be planned out carefully. Q: Do you have any advice for the young professionals trying to enter the field of control research these days? Barry: I think it s always good to be curious. The need to be a deep specialist in companies like Shell would certainly be true 15 years ago. Today, however, I think people with hybrid skill-sets prove to be extremely competitive. My main caution would be to not overspecialize, because industry does require people who can fundamentally write computer code and algorithms. I would say the academic world pigeon-holes people into specializations. If you other fields interest you, don t be afraid to cultivate them. I am all for research and specialization, but people with hybrid skill-sets that can cross boundaries are probably the most successful people that we have at Shell. Q: So the attitude that you recommend is to not be afraid to specialize, but at the same time keep your other interests active and foster them? Barry: To use myself as an example: I spent time trying to understand how the web and HTML worked. People said to me, Computers? You re a control engineer, why are you spending all that time there for? Several years later, a discussion arose, during which we discussed how human/machine interface groups 45

47 could evolve for advanced control technologies. It required knowledge the possible technologies in web browsers, and at that time few people were able to bring ideas to the discussion. I was one of the few who was able to contribute. Another example is, now in 2015, most of our (Shell s) company operations and technologies are shared on the web. It is all about recognizing how technologies in other areas can mesh with your area of expertise. This is how engineering work in 2015 is different than that of years ago. Q: So you recommend keeping an active approach over the whole area of different opportunities and different fields that are available? Barry: There will always be time to specialize. You never know when something in another field may be applicable to your own. I see people who specialize too deeply, and it becomes increasingly difficult (as one specializes) when the business demands changes in skillsets. We take the opposite approach in Shell; when we bring in new graduates from process control, we re actually having them look at things such as instrumentation and safety systems. This is not because we want them to become experts in those areas, but by recognizing how those systems impact the process, we are making people recognize the interactions between these aspects. Q: So really, it is all about looking at the big picture? Barry: Exactly. I also recommend to people who are starting out to fundamentally realize how your business makes money, and how you can help to move that business value along. One nice thing about advanced process control is that the process constraints are usually very clear, which aspects of product quality should be improved and how all these factors impact the business at large. Sometimes being bogged down on getting the details why things are working and not makes people lose sight of the big picture, which, again, is realizing where the business values are. Q: With that said, do you think that the training that Ph. D. and Masters students are receiving at universities is deemed acceptable, or do you think changes could be made? Barry: I think that it s more of a mindset that I developed over the years, but we ve evolved to a point where the process industry is an applied technology. And that is why I always put a lighter emphasis on the mathematical, theoretical training. Instead, I suggest people to keep looking at how what they re working on can be used to move business forward, not just in the oil/gas industries, but also in other industries that need not be process control. Q: So you ve talked about the industrial ties in the process control field is good, but do you think there are opportunities for more? Barry: I would just suggest that people have the mindset of how to figure out how things can be put together. 25 years ago, there was an obvious opportunity to mix, for example, process control techniques with the yogurt and cottage cheese industry. So again, I think it helps to stay open to understanding what s going on in the industry around us, and what problems they re looking to address. Q: You also talked about the oil/gas industry. How is the current oil price affecting your everyday business? Barry: We have encountered numerous changes today which are challenging many traditional ways of oil/gas production. I would say that the demand for oil still requires traditional pipelines, but at the same time, people need to be coming up with solutions that adapt to the changing infrastructure. Those who succeed consider the constraints and optimize between production efficiency versus economic constraints. Again, this just increases the need for process models and optimization methods, and companies that specialize in these areas (such as Shell) are indeed in a good spot. Q: On the same topic, how do you think the oil price affects the diversification into renewable energy, and are you seeing any kind of shift towards renewable energy due to the drop in oil prices? Is it becoming less or more of a focus? Barry: I have noticed the increasing prevalence of electric cars, as well as fueling stations for these cars, especially in the Netherlands where I live today. The slow displacement of oil/gas and diesel powered cars certainly exists, and obviously the market dictates the direction of changes to some extent. However, I think that people have grown to embrace the concepts of sustainability and renewability, such that even as the prices of oil, gasoline, and diesel drop, people still maintain interest in renewable cars. I think that we are at an inflection point where people see the need in electric vehicles, which raises the demand for electricity. Then the question shifts from how do we produce oil/gas to how do we generate electricity? Shell s stance 46

48 is that energy is always increasing, regardless of what percentage of that total energy is electricity or oil/gas. People will slowly shift away from traditional oil/gas to other renewables, but all these sources of energy will be relevant for another years. Q: As a last question, could you describe your current life, your family, what you like to do in your leisure time, or any sports or hobbies that you may have outside of your academic life? Barry: My wife and I live in the Netherlands, and we have 2 daughters back in Canada. We just became grandparents for the first time a few months ago. It is an exciting experience. We have also taken the advantage of our time here to travel and see as many different places as we can. This is probably the opportunity that has been presented to us by living in Europe for the last few years, and something we spent a lot of time doing for sure.

49 Interview with Dr. Joe Qin Q: What is your educational background and current occupation? Joe Qin: I studied automatic control at Tsinghua University in Beijing for both my Bachelor s and my master s degrees. My Ph.D. degree was in chemical engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park. After my Ph.D., I worked as a principal engineer at Emerson Process Management for 3 years, and developed 2 products. In 1995, I joined the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. I became an Associate Professor in 2000, then became a full professor in After being a professor at University of Texas for 12 years, I switched to the University of Southern California (in Los Angeles) in Currently I am the Vice President at the Chinese University Hong Kong, Shenzhen, which is a new campus in Mainland China. Q: Was there any specific reason that you switched jobs? Joe Qin: As I gained experience in the academic world, I wanted to move on and play a more important role in the area of administration, and influence the direction of research and education. This directly impacts the education that students receive at the school, which in turn impacts the quality of professionals that we are sending out into society. Many colleagues think administration sacrifices your time to do research, but this is something that has to be done by someone. Q: Speaking of playing bigger roles, do you have any plans for that in your future career? Joe Qin: Research definitely remains to be a significant component of my future career, and as I mentioned previously, as the Vice President, my administrative efforts influence the direction of research. I would like to do this throughout China, specifically in building platforms of research-related activities and programs under which young graduates and engineers can thrive. Q: Do you have any advice for young students or engineers who just freshly graduated from university? Joe Qin: In my personal opinion, I think it is important to possess one specific long-term goal, especially for students who are talented. Finding a good job after a sufficient education is easy, but students must be able to recognize the potential of their strengths and talents, and how they can be applied to impact society at large. When students freshly enter a new job, it is easy to simply do as told. The motivation to think about the bigger picture is low. However, as time progresses, one must consider the overall aspects of your business, and make long-term decisions as opposed to decisions based on short-term self-benefits. Think about how these decisions affect society as well. Q: Why did you choose this particular area of research (automatic control) in process control? Joe Qin: Starting from my teenager days 36 years ago, I was one of the first batch of students who had the opportunity to receive higher education, after passing some extremely rigorous entrance exams for university. Despite the heavy competition, I achieved one of the top scores of that time (in the entrance exams) and was accepted into Tsinghua University. At that time, I had a natural aptitude for mathematics, and control seemed like a natural match for my skillset. As I started in the field of automatic control at Tsinghua, I was simultaneously exposed rigorous control theory. In China, automatic control is treated as a discipline by itself, and is considered a highly-respected, Tier-1 discipline for students. I moved to the U.S. for my Ph.D. Studies. Since no stand-alone department existed in the field of process control in the U.S., I chose to study in the field of Chemical Engineering with Tom McAvoy at the University of Maryland. Maryland has an Institute for systems and control, which consolidates research from the various disciplines of Electrical, Mechanical, and Chemical engineering. The exposure to people and ideas from this wide variety of disciplines reinforced my interest in control. Q: To continue on the topic of education preparing graduate students for their future achievements, do you think your graduate education prepared you sufficiently for your career achievements? Joe Qin: Of course! Both my undergraduate education in electrical engineering and my Ph.D. education in chemical engineering trained me to migrate between different disciplines. I was fluent with concepts from electrical engineering and automatic control, as well as basic chemistry and heat transfer concepts. Overcoming the challenges of being exposed to new ideas and qualifying exams in my graduate education prepared me adequately. The field of chemical engineering was new to me; I was probably the first (among my classmates at that time) who chose to do a Ph.D. in a completely unrelated area. This was no easy task which took a significant amount of effort, but paid off in the end in form of transferable, migratory skills. I am 48

50 able to explore new areas and talk to professionals that I otherwise would not have been able to, if not for my diverse education. Q: Could you briefly discuss what you re planning to present at the plenary session during ADCHEM 2015? Joe Qin: I will discuss new trends in the emerging area of process data analytics. Process engineering has, for the past years, traditionally been about collecting a large amount of data. However, computational power has only increased dramatically in the last 10 years, and many of the new opportunities arising from the increase of research in computer science and machine learning have not been realized in the chemical engineering industry. Today everyone is connected to the internet via wireless cellphones and a variety of other electronic gadgets, but how do we process this information? We could apply many of the tools developed in computer science to our chemical processes to extract useful information. This would then aid performance monitoring, control, and optimization, which complements the traditional modelling approaches. That will be the motivation for me to discuss these topics. Q: With the massive amounts of data being collected and generated online today, how do you think the process industry will change? Joe Qin: The use of big data is becoming more obvious now, and certainly will be for the future. In nonchemical engineering areas such as e-commerce and social networking, data is used to guide major decisions. To transfer these theories and methods over to chemical processes and control, we need engineers to apply these methods in the form of a novel solution. We need to think in the direction of how computer science-based data analysis tools can be used in control, optimization and process modelling and monitoring. Q: Could you describe your childhood, perhaps provide any anecdotes or events that you would like to share, that would help the reader relate to you as a plenary speaker? Joe Qin: I was born in a town near Qingdao, which is a coastal area in the Shandong province. Most of my childhood was spent during the Cultural Revolution. For many children of that time, the concept of not having to go to school and work hard was attractive. I did not study much until junior high, because nobody had to. The educational system at school was almost nonexistent; we were barely taught anything of use. By the time I reached high school, the end of the cultural revolution sparked a major political change. Suddenly, young children were encouraged to study because they were given the opportunity to enter college through rigorous exams and competition. I was accepted into Tsinghua University with one of the highest scores, at the age of 16. Most other children older than me were involved in physical labour in the countryside, due to their being caught up in the last years of the cultural revolution. I was too young to be part of that, and was fortunate enough to have both the time to play before junior high school, and the chance to receive good education. At that time, most youngsters in China looked up to great mathematicians as role models. Q: I (Bhushan Gopaluni) also received a good education at the University of Alberta. One of the best professors I ever had was Tongwen Chen. I realize that you and Prof. Chen were close childhood friends and classmates. Do you have anything to say about your friendship? Joe Qin: Tongwen Chen and I studied at Tsinghua University in the same discipline of automatic control. Our dorms were next door, and we worked together closely for 5 years undergrad and 1.5 years during grad school. Tongwen was one of the smartest students ever to exist in the department of control at Tsinghua. We worked together closely and enjoyed our friendship. Moreover, we shared a number of extracurricular activities at Tsinghua meant for the top students. Several years later, both of us left China to pursue our Ph.D. degrees. Interestingly, we were both elected as fellows of IFAC last year at the IFAC World Congress. Out of the 30 years of students graduating from Tsinghua s automatic control department, only the two of us were ever elected as IFAC fellows. Q: You talked about how mathematics played a big role in your choice of education and research. In your opinion, are professors training process engineers correctly? I personally find it hard to attract chemical engineering students with the right aptitude for mathematics to do research in high-level control. Could you comment on how our education system should change (if it should), and if we could improve certain aspects of it to retain students interests in control, and to attract the best students to control engineering? Joe Qin: Given my current role as an administrator and educator, this is of course one of my primary focuses. I think we have to recognize that the times have changed. For example, 30 years ago people found it enjoyable to do mathematical puzzles as a hobby. Now many other activities appear to be more attractive. For mathematics, people have to possess a certain aptitude to find it interesting. In engineering, most 49

51 students find, for example, experimental work more interesting than mathematical theory. Math is an abstract subject and it takes a special process for students to fully understand the concepts. Moreover, we teach significantly less mathematics in engineering today compared to 30 years ago, because most people want a program where even the average student can understand most of the concepts presented and graduate easily. On the other hand, when I was studying 30 years ago, professors cared little about whether students fully digested the content, so they taught all the math they deemed necessary in the appropriate subjects. I would like to add that a wide distribution exists with respect to students mathematical capabilities. In countries like China and Russia, a rigorous mathematical education is retained even today, so we are still able to find people possessing strong abilities in math. Drastic changes in the educational system cannot happen overnight; it has to change over the course of many years. But, for the few people out there who are interested in math, we have to pay more attention for creating an environment that will foster and shape their talents. Q: A trade-off always exists in education, in terms of what should be taught to only the best students and what should be taught to all students. How do you think the balance should shift in engineering today? Joe Qin: Times have changed; professors now have to be aware of their teaching evaluations (by students). When I went to school, no teaching evaluations existed, and even if there were, professors cared little about them. When I was a graduate student, I had a professor who taught us linear algebra, of which less than 10% of the total material was understood by an average student taking the course. However, this course was one of which I learned the most from. Students could not digest the course material easily, because it was taught in such an abstract way. As a student, adapting to different professors teaching styles is a necessary evil. Q: Did you experience any hardships, interesting or life-changing events? We would like to tell your story in such a way that it inspires future students, professors, etc., to help them to achieve goals similar to those that you have achieved in your career. Joe Qin: Most of the life-changing situations I experienced occurred to me when I was still young. When I was a child, the cultural revolution ended when Deng Xiaoping became in charge of China. He restored the opportunities for most children to pursue post-secondary education. That was the reason I got into Tsinghua when I was 16 years old. When I was 11 or 12, I had to figure out how to make a living. Without education as an option, physical labour was the only solution. I explored tailoring as a vocation, as well as carpentry. For example, I was able to construct wooden chairs and other things at the age of 11, a task which few adults (let alone children) can accomplish today. But back then it was necessary, because there was no other method of making a living. I was fortunate enough to not have to waste much time doing physical labour, as the cultural revolution ended. If the revolution did not end in time, I certainly would not be who I am today. The other major life-changing event for me occurred during the 1980s, when I was admitted into the University of Maryland and started working with Tom McAvoy in Chemical Engineering. Q: Could you give us a historical perspective on how you started your research has evolved in so many of these areas? Big data is a major field today; you ve worked in process monitoring, fault detection, system identification, and so on. How did you adapt so quickly to these different disciplines? Joe Qin: The switch to chemical engineering was the most important deciding factor. The interdisciplinary training provided with me the confidence to freely explore the different areas in control, even if those areas were unfamiliar to me at first. At Tsinghua, the rigorous control program prepared me so adequately that by the time I was accepted into Maryland, I was already well-equipped with a strong background in control engineering, and only needed to brush up on process engineering. At the University of Texas, I was presented with many opportunities around semiconductor manufacturing, applying concepts in statistical process control and monitoring. The local industry was also quick to adopt these multivariable statistical techniques, fault detection and diagnosis tools to improve their processes. When I moved to University of Southern California, the opportunity to work with semiconductors was no longer as convenient, as many facilities have been moved to Korea and Taiwan. It was a time to explore the new area of energy. 8 years ago, I started working in the area of energy optimization, looking at upstream oil operations and control. At USC, I was part of a center for smart oil fields, called CiSoft, which was actually a joint venture between USC and Chevron. I have given talks in several different areas, and worked with top scholars worldwide in those areas. For example, I can talk to people in chemometrics, system identification, machine learning, and computer science. Finally, I have published numerous reviews of papers in all these different areas. Last year, I wrote a perspective article which was published as the AIChE Journal s September 2014 issue. I was lucky enough to be invited by the Journal editor, Prof. Ignacio Grossman at Carnegie Mellon to write his paper. This paper just appeared 6 months ago, and was one of the hottest papers ever published by Wiley. 50

52 Q: Tell us a bit about your personal life, family. What do you like to do in your leisure time? Do you play any sports? Joe Qin: Until about 10 years ago, I played tennis, but could not cope up with the strenuous physical efforts required. Now my everyday hobby is playing golf and taking walks. I play golf with friends such as Tom McAvoy at Texas, James Rawlings at Wisconsin, Tom Marlin at McMaster, and Jay Lee in Korea. I have also been part of the Texas Consortium with Tom Edgar and James Rawlings for more than 20 years. Before every consortium meeting we would have a golf game, and that led to good friendships. Q: Thanks for the interview. If you have any interesting photos please share them with us. Joe Qin: Thank you for your time. I think the best attitude is to not boast about myself, my intention is not to boast about my achievements, but to share these events and my thoughts as I get older, with the younger generation of engineers and students. We have a responsibility to help young people by sharing our experiences with them. I look at it this way, and this is why I came forward to do this interview. In the past I would just do my work, and didn t say much to verbally share it with other people. Now my thinking has changed, and I realized it is good to share with young people, both what (I think) is right and what is not right to do. Q: Thank you for everything. Did you want to tell us anything else; was there some question that we missed? Joe Qin: On a final note, I wish to mention the numerous mentors I was fortunate enough to have. Tom McAvoy was my Ph. D. advisor, and a professor who was always enthusiastic about helping young people. Tom was the editor of JPC for 18 years, and is now retired. Another person is Prof. Harmon Ray, who is also very well-known in both process control and the polymer field. He visited Tsinghua in 1988 and gave me the critical, life-changing advice of doing a Ph. D. at Maryland. My colleagues at Texas and Wisconsin, Tom Edgar and James Rawlings were also my mentors and friends in many ways. John MacGregor and Lennart Ljung are two marvelous scholars whose pioneering work in their respective fields, friendship, and the numerous discussions we had in their beautiful houses were both inspiring and memorable. Finally, Tom Marlin, Sirish Shah, Biao Huang are also people I have had many productive conversations with. 51
