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.

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.
