流程工业综合自动化国际合作联合实验室面向流程工业高效化和绿色化的重大需求,以实现智能优化制造为目标,开展基础研究与前沿高技术研究;建立数据驱动的复杂过程工业智能建模、控制与优化决策理论与技术;建立科学研究与教学和人才培养深度融合的创新人才培养机制,使具有中国特色的自动化专业处于国际先进水平。

联合实验室拥有4支国家自然科学基金委创新研究群体、2个学科创新引智基地(111计划),海内外院士4人、IFAC Fellow 8人、IEEE Fellow 14人、特聘教授13人,国家青年千人计划人才6人,国家杰出青年基金获得者10人,国家优秀青年基金获得者2人,教育部长江学者特聘教授9人,长江学者讲座教授8人,教育部新世纪优秀人才16人,中国政府友谊奖获得者1人,高等学校科学研究优秀成果奖(科学技术)青年科学奖获得者1人。

联合实验室拥有一流的科研环境,建设了智能建模、控制和优化决策算法实验研究平台,基于大数据、互联网和云计算的工业过程智慧控制系统、监控系统、决策系统和工业全流程一体化控制系统技术的实验研究平台。

联合实验室不断创新机制。在复杂工业过程智能运行优化控制方面取得了国际领先的研究成果,多次获得国际会议和国际著名期刊最佳论文奖,并在大型全流程生产线建立节能降耗效果显著的综合自动化示范系统,获得多项国家科技奖励。国务院副总理刘延东视察实验室指出:实验室面向生产自动化的重大需求,把工业化和信息化深度融合、科学研究与人才培养、科学研究与生产一线服务相融合,取得了很多创新的成果,得到国际同行很高的评价,为实现工业生产自动化做出了贡献,是国家未来“四化”建设中非常需要的成果。

联合实验室所取得的成果获得国际权威专家的高度评价,国际控制理论领域最高学术组织——IEEE 控制系统协会三任主席Francesco Bullo教授、Maria Elena Valcher教授和Roberto Tempo 教授来访实验室后均在业界顶级期刊IEEE Control Systems Magazine上撰文赞扬实验室:“非常感谢中国沈阳东北大学柴天佑教授的款待。他的声誉很高的流程工业综合自动化国家重点实验室是一个真正独一无二且令人敬佩的研究中心。该中心聚焦复杂工业过程自动化与绿色化方向上的控制科学与技术转移。”、 “实验室晚上九点时工作人员的数量之多令人吃惊……,在研究经费和科技获奖方面取得的成绩令人赞叹……,柴教授取得的成就在国际自动化领域不可比拟……。”、 “我出访的最后一站是位于沈阳的东北大学,柴天佑领导的众多的大学实验室在自动化和控制方面所作的大量研究活动给我留下了极其深刻的印象。”


The International Joint Research Laboratory of Integrated Automation

The International Joint Research Laboratory of Integrated Automation (IJIA) pursues fundamental research and advanced cutting-edge technology development to meet the requirements on high automation performance, intelligent and optimal manufacturing in process industries under green environment. Technically, IJIA focuses on the development of data-driven control theory and technology, including intelligent data modelling, advanced control and smart decision-making techniques for complex process industries. IJIA promotes automation technology with national characteristics and keeps the top international and national reputation in mind and establishes an innovative-talent-cultivation mechanism through combining scientific researches with teaching and talents training programs.

IJIA has very strong leadership in the working field and attracted many outstanding academics around the world to work in the lab, including 4 Academicians (including 2 overseas Academicians), 14 IEEE Fellows and 8 IFAC Fellows, 13 National Distinguished Professors, 15 Distinguished Young Scholars of Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and Chair Professors of Cheung Kong Scholars Program, 4 NSFC innovative research groups, and 2 Discipline Basements of Innovation and Talent Recruitment (111 Plan).

With the excellent research environment and opportunities, IJIA has established experimental platforms for teaching and research on the following specific topics such as intelligent data modelling, control and decision-making; smart control system design for process industry, big data processing for industrial monitoring systems, networked control systems and cloud computing; and integrated automation system design.

Along with the associated National Engineering Research Center, IJIA continuously renovates itself and opens a door for rapidly transferring fundamental research outcomes to advanced technologies with real world applications. Over the past years, IJIA has devoted to developing a theoretical framework for operational optimization and control, which is well recognized nationally and internationally. Its technical contributions have been awarded as the best papers for many times in top journals and prestigious international conferences. Its synthetical automation system with effective energy saving outcome has received considerable attention over the world and have received National Science and Technology Award for many times. On September 11th, 2013, Vice Premier of China, Yandong Liu, visited IJIA and made the following comments: In regard to the great demand for production automation, the lab has deeply integrated industrialization with information technology, academic study with talent training, and scientific research with industrial applications, and has achieved great innovative accomplishments with great reputation and recognition by international experts. These contributions substantially support the national goal of industrial production automation, which could play an important role in implementation of the ‘Four Modernizations’ of China.

IJIA carries out extensive and comprehensive international collaboration, having a great impact on the global research and engineering community. The three presidents of IEEE Control Systems Society have visited IJIA and expressed their great appreciation on their “President’s Message” in the top journal IEEE Control Systems Magazine. The present president Prof. Maria Elena Valcher made the following comments: “the State Key Lab is just astonishing for the number of people working there (after 9 p.m.), the research funds it is able to attract, and the number of science and technology awards it has received......I believe that what Prof. Chai has been able to achieve has no equivalent in the academic world of automation.”

IJIA carries out extensive and comprehensive international collaboration, having a great impact on the global research and engineering community. The three presidents Profs. Francesco BulloMaria Elena Valcher and Roberto Tempo made the following comments: I am especially thankful to Prof. Tianyou Chai for hosting me at Northeastern University in Shenyang, China. His highly regarded State Key Laboratory of Synthetical Automation for Process Industries is a truly unique and impressive center focused on control science and technology transition in the context of automation and greening of complex industrial processes. , the State Key Lab is just astonishing for the number of people working there (after 9 p.m.), the research funds it is able to attract, and the number of science and technology awards it has received......I believe that what Prof. Chai has been able to achieve has no equivalent in the academic world of automation., and My trip ended with an interesting visit to the Northeastern University in Shenyang, where I was positively impressed by the number of activities in the area of automation and control carried on by Chai Tianyou in various university labs.
