The complexity of effectively controlling chemical processes, both individual units and entire plants, has been widely recognized in the process systems and control communities in industry and academia. This paper presents an overview of the more recent developments in process identification and control, with particular emphasis on exploratory techniques which are still at a conceptual stage. The impact of some of the recent theoretical developments on practical applications are summarized. We hope this critique and the contributions in this session will provide numerous starting points for a broad range of research efforts in process, control.
