      The last twenty years have seen a radical step-change in the capability and application of Control Engineering, brought about by advances in computational speed and capacity. Control design for contemporary, complex engineering systems has developed alongside Computer Aided Control System Design, powerful real-time embedded computation, and both off-line and on-line optimization techniques. This Special Issue will bring together papers, which particularly describe recent advances in Control Engineering in industrial applications and complex engineering systems, describing the application of novel theory across all areas of Automation. Papers which include practical experimental results are particularly encouraged, as are papers which set Control advances in the wider context of, for example, society, economics, energy and environment.
