Workshop on Control and Optimization of Network Systems

The workshop aims to provide a regular forum for researchers and students to exchange ideas, presenting current work, addressing latest topics, and sharing information in the broad areas of communication networks, cyber-physical systems, social networks, security and privacy in networked systems, and control of complex networks. This workshop is hosted by NYU and will be on May 1st, 2015.

Undergraduate Summer Research Program at Systems and Control Group

The 2014 NYU School of Engineering Undergraduate Summer Research Program marked eight years this summer in providing a unique research opportunity for School of Engineering, NYU College of Arts and Science, and NYU Abu Dhabi students alike. In this program, participants are offered something beyond the traditional classroom experience by getting the chance to work alongside faculty mentors on cutting-edge research projects.

Prof. Jiang named an IFAC fellow

Prof. Jiang has been named a fellow of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) in recognition of his fundamental contributions to nonlinear control theory and design and applications to underactuated mechanical, communications and biological systems.

The mission of the systems and control group is to model and design intelligent and autonomous systems. Initially developed in the context of electric circuits, recent applications have focused on complex, dynamic and networked systems, such as unmanned vehicles and power system networks. The field of system and control provides essential enabling and supporting technologies for different applications in electrical engineering ranging from defense and manufacturing to telecommunications and bioengineering. NYU School of Engineering has a long history of research in the area. Members of the group seek control tools and solutions for increasingly complex systems such as cyber-physical systems, neural systems, swarms of robots, or economic markets.
