Call for papers


Cyber-physical systems, such as intelligent transportation systems, smart grids, and advanced manufacturing solutions are becoming increasingly prevalent. Developing new methods to integrate measured data and different forms of feedback inside the decision-making mechanism is central for a trustworthy system design. There are distinctive challenges that arise in this scenario, such as the existence of different time-scales, the need to guarantee sufficient richness of the collected data, or the effect of suboptimal decisions under uncertainty.

SysDO aims to focus on these challenges by bringing together researchers working in control, optimization, learning, and in particular at the intersection of these topics. Lasting solutions require an interdisciplinary approach, and we therefore welcome both methodological works that propose new theory and algorithms, as well as cutting-edge applications.

Submission Deadlines:
