We would like to attract your attention to the "The 4th HYCON2 PhD School on Control of Networked and Large-Scale Systems", which will take place on June 21-24, 2011 in Trento, Italy. The school is targeted at graduate students and researchers who want to learn the main concepts of the appealing field of networked control systems, as well as at graduate students and postgraduate researchers already working in the area.

Selected speakers will lecture during the school covering the basic concepts and results on stability and control of networked control systems, wireless communication, event-triggered control, consensus algorithms, decentralized control, distributed optimization, model predictive control, real-time control, and large-scale applications such as power and traffic networks. The program of the school includes four full days of lectures, interleaved by enough time slots to allow scientific discussions among the participants and with the speakers.

The lectures will be given by

- Alberto Bemporad (Italy)

- Stephen Boyd (USA)

- Carlos Canudas-de Wit (France)

- Christos Cassandras (USA)

- Maurice Heemels (Netherlands)

- Hideaki Ishii (Japan)

- Kalle Johansson (Sweden)

- Jan Lunze (Germany)

- Luigi Palopoli (Italy)

- Dragoslav Siljak (USA)

- Sandro Zampieri (Italy)

- Kameshwar Poolla (USA)

The school follows an established successful tradition of organizing biannual international PhD schools. The 1st HYCON PhD School on Hybrid Systems, the 2nd HYCON PhD School on Hybrid Systems, and the 3rd WIDE PhD School on Networked Control Systems took place in 2005, 2007, and 2009, respectively, in Siena, Italy. On these schools top researchers in the field educated over 300 PhD students from all over the world on a broad range of topics.

The full program of the school, other information and the registration procedure can be found at http://control.ing.unitn.it/4hycon2/

We welcome you, your students and colleagues to this interesting and inspiring event!

With the best regards,

Alberto Bemporad and Maurice Heemels
