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 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”

oberwolfach

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.
