Student Workshop on Fractional-Order Systems 2017

Patras, Greece, September 21-22, 2017 – CANCELED

The Student Workshop had to be canceled for low number of submissions.

In the frame of the COST Action CA15225 we invite registered university students to submit their results reached within their Master and PhD studies in the area of fractional-order circuits and systems, their description and design, and to motivate them to continue in their studies in PhD and/or postdoc research activities related with the area of fractional systems.

The workshop gives you an opportunity to interact with young colleagues from other COST Action member countries and paves the way for your networking and potentially future activity on the objectives within the COST Action CA15225.

The scope of the workshop mainly covers, but is not limited to the following:

  • Design of fractional-order analog circuits and systems,
  • Design of fractional-order digital circuits and systems,
  • Fractional-order elements approximation and emulation,
  • Fractional-order control circuits and systems.

The Call for Extended Abstracts is available here.


According to the study level, the maximum length of the extended abstracts for MSc students is 2 pages, whereas for PhD students it is 3 pages.

Submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed and selected on the basis of these reviews. Accepted extended abstracts will be presented at the workshop and published in the workshop proceedings that will be available online at the COST Action webpage.

To prepare the extended abstracts, please follow the LaTeX or MS Word templates :
