The Canadian chemical engineering community (CSChE) has a long history of excellence in process systems engineering research and practice involving applied statistics and process design, control, and optimization. Members of this community recognized as early leaders include Park Reilly (Waterloo), David Bacon (Queen’s), John MacGregor (McMaster), and Grant Fisher (Alberta), all of whom served as both supervisors and mentors of hundreds of students who have themselves gone on to make contributions to these fields in both academia and industry, in Canada and around the world.
Each year, this community gathers at the Canadian Chemical Engineering Conference to hear presentations based on work being done in the process systems engineering field on topics of relevance and importance to the chemical engineering community. This Special Issue is being coordinated with the 68th such conference that is being held in conjunction with the XXIX Interamerican Congress of Chemical Engineering in Toronto, Canada on October 28–31, 2018.
This Special Issue focuses on, but is not limited to, papers that align with the “Systems and Control” thematic sessions of this conference:
- Data analytics;
- Data science;
- Design of sustainable processes;
- Optimal control.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Processes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Please note that for papers submitted after 31 December 2019 an APC of 1400 CHF applies. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
