On 29 and 30 March 2011, the Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands, hosted the HYCON2 WP2 Meeting "First HYCON2 Workshop on Networked Control Systems". The main objectives of this workshop were (i) to share the recent advances in the field of NCSs and (ii) to get an overview of possible contributions to the state-of-the-art reports that need to be written for the following HYCON2 project deliverables:

- 2.1.1: Report on state of the art for analysing and designing Networked Control (NCS). 

- 2.2.1: Report on the state of the art and novel techniques for adaptive network resource allocation for NCS.

To achieve these objectives, the workshop programme consisted of technical presentations and discussions on the project deliverables. The programme of the workshop and the list of participants can be found below.
