NetCon at ECCS'14 - New trends in analysis and control of complex networks

A Satellite Meeting of the ECCS'14 - European Conference on Complex Systems
Lucca, Italy, September 25, 2014
Organized by
- Mario Di Bernardo, University of Bristol and University of Naples
"Federico II"
- Carlo Piccardi, Politecnico di Milano
Technical sponsorship by SICC - Italian Society for Chaos and Complexity
The interest on networks has dramatically increased in the last fifteen
years, since it has been recognized that the network formalism is the best
approach for dealing with complex systems made by discrete, interacting
units like individuals, companies, computers, etc. Although plenty of
methods of analysis have been developed, and many phenomena that crucially
characterize network structures and dynamics can now be studied in a
rigorous way, the challenge of the next decade is to transform the
'networks science' from a set of elegant theoretical results to a powerful
toolbox for the everyday activity of scientists and engineers. A specific
field where this development is more urgent is control, as the control and
the 'network science' communities have put in common their rich theoretical
knowledge only to a very little extent.

The Satellite Meeting will be a forum for discussing recent advances in the
study of network analysis and control. The workshop is intended to be fully
interdisciplinary, and bring together both theoretical studies and
applications to any field of science and engineering.

Particular attention will be devoted to the following topics:

Control and identification of complex networks; Consensus and
synchronization on networks; Methods of dynamical systems and control
theory applied to network analysis; Methods of network analysis applied to
control problems; Networked control systems; Robustness of uncertain
networked systems
Invited talks (confirmed):
- Takaaki Aoki, Kagawa University: Organization of adaptive networks as a
dynamical system
- Alberto Bemporad, IMT Institute for Advanced Studies, Lucca: Stochastic
economic model predictive control of complex drinking water networks
- Yang-Yu Liu, Harvard University: Controllability and observability of
complex systems
- Roberto Tempo, CNR-IEIIT, Politecnico di Torino: Distributed randomized
algorithms in social and sensor networks
- Roberto Zampieri, University of Padova: Controllability metrics,
limitations and algorithms for complex networks
The Satellite Meeting will be hosted by ECCS'14 and will be co-located with
the main conference at IMT Institute for Advanced Studies, Lucca.
