IFAC Conference on Networked Systems

Networked Systems and complex dynamical systems are composed of a large number of individual systems interacting physically or through a communication network. These large-scale cyber-physical systems arise as natural models in many areas of engineering and sciences, such as sensor networks, autonomous, unmanned vehicles, power networks, biological networks, social networks, and animal cooperative aggregation.

The conference 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 conference is to bring together researchers from control, computer science, communication, game theory, social sciences, statistics, mathematics and other areas to discuss emerging topics in networked systems.

  • Multi-agent systems

  • Control under communication constraints

  • Consensus and gossip algorithms

  • Cooperative control/estimation/learning

  • Distributed optimization and MPC

  • Cyber security in networked control systems

  • Event-triggered and self-triggered control

  • Wireless sensing and control systems

  • Graph-based methods for networked systems

  • Cooperation in the presence of adversaries

  • Network games

  • Applications in engineering, computing, and social sciences

  • Decentralized Control and Large-Scale Systems
