poster-small.jpgSelected researchers will lecture at the 2nd HYCON PhD School on Hybrid Systems on different topics of hybrid systems, including modeling, mathematical properties, stability and stabilization, simulation, reachability analysis and verification of safety properties, observability and state estimation, model predictive control, networked and embedded control, identification, diagnosis, stochastic models, and the use of hybrid tools in industrial control applications.

The school is targeted at graduate students and researchers who want to learn the main concepts of hybrid systems, as well as at graduate students and postgraduate researchers already working in the field of hybrid systems.

The school is co-organized by the European Embedded Control Institute, the European Network of Excellence "HYCON - Hybrid Control: Taming Heterogeneity and Complexity of Networked Embedded Systems" (6th Framework program), the Italian Ministry of Research through the Convention of International Interuniversity Cooperation "ICO - International Curriculum Option of Doctoral Studies in Hybrid Control for Complex, Distributed and Heterogeneous Embedded Systems", the University of Siena, the Technical University of Eindhoven, and by the Technical Committee on Hybrid Systems of the IEEE Control Systems Society.

The school will be immediately followed by the HYGEIA PhD School on Hybrid Systems Biology, Siena, Friday July 20, 2007.

The 1st HYCON PhD School on Hybrid Systems was held in Siena on July 19-22, 2005 and was attended by about 120 participants from several different countries.
