Chicago, IL - Control Engineering's Vance VanDoren, consulting editor, is on hand at the ISA show here, Oct. 21-24, to discuss his new book from Butterworth-Heinemann (Woburn, MA), ''Techniques for Adaptive Control.''

Dr. VanDoren worked with other industry experts to discuss ''Techniques for Adaptive Control,'' which provides insight into new technologies, practical applications of adaptive control, and benefits. In the book, each contributor provides an overview of a particular advanced control product, explains how it works, and provides reasons a user would want to consider it.

Control Engineering (Oak Brook, IL) featured an exclusive preview of the book in its October cover story, ''Adaptive Control: Work Smarter, not Harder,'' also by Dr. VanDoren.

Click here to go to the Control Engineering bookstore for more information or to order ''Techniques for Adaptive Control'' and other books of interest to control engineers.

Elsevier Science incorporates Butterworth-Heinemann . Both, along with Control Engineering , are part of Reed Elsevier .
