|NetCon@ECCS'14 - NEW TRENDS IN ANALYSIS AND CONTROL OF COMPLEX NETWORKS - Lucca, Italy, September 25, 2014|
A Satellite Meeting of the ECCS'14 - European Conference on Complex Systems

Abstract submission deadline: June 15
Notification of acceptance: July 1
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
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.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Researchers interested in giving a contributed talk (15min) are required to submit a one-page proposal including title, authors (with affiliation), and abstract of their contribution. The submission deadline is June 15. The notification of acceptance will be communicated within July 1.
