  • Jan H. van Schuppen

    A distributed systems consists of an interconnection of two or more subsystems. Control of such systems is structured by two or more controllers each receiving an observation stream from a local subsystem and providing an input to the local subsystem. The control objectives mostly refer to the interaction of the subsystems in the global system...

  • George J. Pappas

    Fifty years ago, control and computing were part of a broader system science.  After a long period of intra-disciplinary development which resulted in control and computing being distant from each other, embedded and hybrid systems have challenged us to unite the, now developed, theories of continuous control and discrete computing on a...

  • Lennart Ljung

    System identification is about how to build mathematical models of systems from observed input-output signals. As a subarea of Automatic control is is about half a century old, and it takes many of its basic ideas from classical statistical techniques. Regularization is, simply put, to allow a considerable amount of freedom in the model, and...

  • Alberto Sangiovanni Vincentelli

    Cyber-physical systems combine a cyber side (computing and networking) with a physical side (mechanical, electrical, and chemical processes). Such systems present the biggest challenges as well as the biggest opportunities in several large industries, including electronics, energy, automotive, defense and aerospace, telecommunications...

  • John C. Doyle

    This talk will focus on progress towards a more “unified” theory for complex networks involving several elements: hard limits on achievable robust performance ( “laws”), the organizing principles that succeed or fail in achieving them (architectures and protocols), the resulting high variability data and “robust yet fragile” behavior observed...

  • John Baillieul

    The year 1948 was auspicious for information science and technology. Norbert Wiener's book Cybernetics was published by Wiley, the transistor was invented (and given its name), and Shannon's seminal paper "A Mathematical Theory of Communication" was published in the Bell System Technical Journal. In the years that followed, important ideas of...
