# Tutorial Session on “Graph Theory in Systems and Control” given at the 2018 CDC! [slides available]

Myself, Prof. Mehran Mesbahi, and Prof. M. Ali Belabbas organized a tutorial session at the 2018 CDC held in Miami, FL. The tutorial aimed to provide an overview of the important role that graph theory plays in systems and controls theory.

Slides from the session are available here.

# Invited Talk at SWARM2017 in Kyoto

I will be giving an invited talk at the 2nd Symposium on Swarm Behavior and Bio-inspired Robotics (SWARM) on Oct. 30 in Kyoto, Japan. My talk is titled ** Sensor Modalities in Multi-Robot Coordination: Constraints and Solutions**.

# 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*.

# I will be giving a talk on rigidity theory for multi-robot coordination in the upcoming IAAC workshop on Motion Control Methods in Robotics.

# 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.”
