The track on Distributed and networked control systems is focused on new research results and methods covering development, operation, verification & performance evaluation as well as maintenance aspects of distributed and networked control systems.

Topics under this track include (but not limited to):

  • Model Driven Development and its application to automation systems(UML, SysML, ...)
  • Domain Specific Modeling and Programming Languages(IEC 61131, IEC 61499, ...)
  • IT Modeling techniques(Object - Orientation, Components, Agents, Service Oriented Architectures,...) for Automation Systems
  • Tool Chains, Platforms, and Frameworks for Software Design and Development
  • Web - of - Things for monitoring and control
  • Performance Analysis
  • System Design and Architecture
  • Self - Configurable and self - recovery Systems
  • Application of Real - Time Ethernet Networks
  • Cyber Physical Systems
  • Application of Service - Oriented Architectures
  • Distributed Architectures for Adaptive Systems
  • Edge Computing Architectures for Automation Systems
