NMPC 2018 features a varied Program. Following the tradition of the NMPC Conference, the event will be single track, consisting of plenary, semi-plenary and contributed presentation. To promote participation and foster student submissions, poster sessions will be included in the program. Furthermore, pre-conference short courses will be offered. Industrial participation will be encouraged by extended abstract submissions, which will not appear in paperplaza, but which will be part of the book of abstracts.
