The goal of this two-day, single-track event is to expose researchers to control and modeling challenges in networked systems with the aim of exchanging knowledge and fostering collaborations between academia, industry, and government agencies.

This symposium is the 4th part of the series on Emerging Topics in Control and Modeling, and follows the Symposium on Cyber-Physical Systems in 2011, the Symposium on Biomedical Systems in 2010, and the Symposium on Alternative Energy Systems in 2009.

The main objective of this symposium is to expose researchers, in particular, graduate students, to some of the important challenges that exist in control and modeling of networked systems. This symposium will benefit students who aspire to be future leaders in innovation and research in the area of networked systems, in the following ways:

  • Invited Talks: Invited speakers, who are renowned experts in one or multiple application areas of networked systems will share their insight on the control and modeling challenges in these systems through a series of interactive, hour-long presentations. These speakers will consist of leaders from academia, industry, and government agencies, representing diverse applications of networked systems.
  • Poster Session: A poster session provides a great opportunity to the students to interact with the invited speakers and other attendees.
  • Panel Discussion: A cross section of the invited speakers and some faculty members would interact with the audience and share a strategic vision of networked systems via a panel discussion.
  • Networking Opportunities: The reception and lunch sessions also provide immense networking opportunities to students in a less formal setting to interact with their peers from other universities and foster potential collaborations.
