# IFAC World Congress Workshop: RIGIDITY THEORY FOR MULTI-AGENT SYSTEMS MEETS PARALLEL ROBOTS: TOWARDS THE DISCOVERY OF COMMON MODELS AND METHODS

I am pleased to announce that together with my colleagues Antonio Franchi (LAAS-CNRS), Paolo Robuffo Giordano (IRISA-CNRS) and Sébastien Briot (LS2N-CNRS), we are organizing a workshop for the upcoming IFAC World Congress (Toulouse, FR) entitled **Rigidity Theory for Multi-Agent Systems Meets Parallel Robotics**. We invite you to participate and submit 1-page abstracts for an interactive session at the workshop.

More information can be found on the workshop website.

# Invited talk at IEEE ICSE 2016 Symposium on Control Theory and Power Engineering

I will be giving a talk at the ICSEE 2016 Symposium on Control Theory and Power Engineering on Thursday, Nov. 17, in Eilat. I will speak about our recent works on *Fekete points, formation control, and the balancing problem*.

# Invited Session Proposal “Rigidity Theory for Problems in Multi-agent Coordination” accepted for the 2015 CDC!

The invited session proposal, “Rigidity Theory for Problems in Multi-agent Coordination,” was accepted for the 2015 CDC. This proposal, organized together with Dr. Paolo Robuffo Giordano (CNRS IRISA) and Dr. Antonio Franchi (CNRS-LAAS), brings together a collection of papers focused on the use of rigidity theory for problems related to formation control, localization, and other coordination problems.

# Presented at the Oberwolfach workshop “Control Theory: A Mathematical Perspective on Cyber-Physical Systems”

The Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach is an international research centre situated in the German Black Forest. It is a very unique environment used to host short and long term researchers and mini-workshops. This year I was invited to give a talk at the workshop on *Control Theory: A Mathematical Perspective on Cyber-Physical Systems,* held from Feb. 22-28.* *I spoke about my recent results on the robustness of consensus networks.

# Awarded a Grand Technion Energy Program research grant

In collaboration with Dr. Beni Cukurel, we have been awarded a grant through the Grand Technion Energy Program on the integration and control of micro-gras turbines into the smart grid. The project is titled “Optimal Operation of the Smart-Grid Equipped with a Distributed Network of Micro-Gas Turbines.”

# EUROAVIA 2014

I will be speaking on multi-agent control and coordination at the EUROAVIA event being held at the Technion on Nov. 24.
