Event-triggered and self-triggered control

October 31, 2016

Open invited track on “Event-triggered and self-triggered control” at the IFAC World Congress 2017 in Toulouse, France

We were approached by the organisers of IFAC WC 2017 to setup an open invited track on event-triggered and self-triggered control for their conference. We decided to go for that. It is a  new sort of open session and there is no strict upper limit on the number of papers submitted.

Also we do not have to cluster the papers in sessions; this will be done by the IPC (probably in consultancy with us), see https://www.ifac2017.org/OIT  for more details.

The deadline for submitting papers is 31 october 2016. See also https://www.ifac2017.org .

If you decide to submit to this track please use the code below to direct your submission to it. Essentially, you do not have to inform us that you are submitting as it will be handled by the IPC of the conference (via TC 1.5 ‘networked systems’  and TC 1.3 `discrete-event and hybrid systems’)


Title:  Event-triggered and self-triggered control Track proposed by: W.P.M.H. Heemels (Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands), S. Hirche (Technische Universität München, Germany), and K.H. Johansson (KTH, Sweden)

Abstract: Recent developments in computer and communication technologies are leading to an increasingly networked and wireless world. This raises new challenging questions in the context of networked control and cyber-physical systems, especially when the computation, communication, and energy resources of the system are limited. To efficiently use the available resources, it is desirable to limit the control actions to instances when the system really needs attention. Unfortunately, the classical time-triggered control paradigm is based on performing sensing and actuation actions periodically in time (irrespective of the state of the system) rather than when the system needs attention. Therefore, it is of interest to consider event-triggered control (ETC) and self-triggered control (STC) as alternative paradigms that trigger control actions based on the system state, output, or other available information. ETC and STC can thus be seen as control strategies introducing feedback in the sensing, communication, and actuation processes. To enable the wide exploitation of these aperiodic control concepts in various domains, there is a strong need for both a rigorous system theory and proof-of-concepts of the main ideas in experimental and real-life applications. To support the development of this system theory and stimulate the application of ETC and STC, we organise a special track in the IFAC World Congress that will present recent advances in the area of ETC and STC and their applications.
