7th IFAC Workshop on Distributed Estimation and Control in Networked Systems (NecSys18)

NecSys18, will be held on August 27-28, 2018, at the Academy Building of the University of Groningen,  Groningen, the Netherlands

Relevant Dates
  • Paper submission deadline: April 15, 2018

  • Notice of acceptance: June 30, 2018

  • Final version due: July 20, 2018

Context and Scope

Networked systems and complex dynamical systems can be taken as 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 and unmanned vehicles, Internet of Things (IoT), smart manufacturing systems (Industry 4.0), biological networks, and animal cooperative aggregation. The workshop will focus on the recent theoretical and experimental developments in the last few years for the analysis, design, identification, estimation and control 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, as well as practitioners in the related industrial or educational fields, to discuss emerging topics in networked systems of common interest.
