Context and Scope

Networked Systems and complex dynamical systems are composed of a large number of simple systems interacting through a communication medium. These systems arise as natural models in many areas of engineering and sciences, such as sensor networks, autonomous, unmanned vehicles, power networks, biological networks, and animal cooperative aggregation.

The workshop will focus on the most innovative mathematical methods proposed in the last few years for the analysis and design of networked systems. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers from control, computer science, communication, game theory, statistics, mathematics and other areas to discuss emerging topics in networked systems of common interest.

  1. Multi-agent systems

  2. Control under communication constraints

  3. Consensus and gossip algorithms

  4. Decentralized and cooperative control/estimation

  5. Distributed optimization and MPC

  6. Cyber security in networked control systems

  7. Event-triggered and self-triggered control

  8. Wireless sensing and control systems

  9. Graph-based methods for networked systems

  10. Cooperation in the presence of adversaries

  11. Networked games

Workshop Organization: Plenaries and Interactive Sessions

The workshop will be single track and will feature plenary presentations and interactive poster sessions of contributed papers.
