    CALL FOR PAPERS

    Symposia on

    Networked Control Systems & Sensor Fusion/Integration Systems

    International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition

    November 11-16, 2001
    New York, New York

    http://www.asme.org/conf/congress01/

    Description:

    The Computer Communications and Control Technical Panel of the ASME Dynamic
    Systems and Control group is planning symposia on the following related
    topics:

    1) Networked Control Systems: Modeling, Analysis, and Control.
    2) Sensor Fusion/Integration Systems in Control Applications.

    Networked Control Systems: Modeling, Analysis, and Control.

    As control systems become increasingly complex, and computers and networks
    get faster and cheaper, there is an increasing tendency to implement control
    systems in a distributed fashion with networked communication. This trend
    can be observed in application areas such as manufacturing, vehicle control
    systems, multi-robot systems, and coordination of multi-agent distributed
    systems. The modularity of the implementation can be used help manage the
    complexity and make the systems easier to change or reconfigure in the
    future. On the other hand, the delays inherent in networked communication
    may degrade the performance of the control system. To address these issues,
    new modeling, analysis, and control design techniques are needed.

    Papers are invited in this symposium on all areas of networked control
    systems, including, but not limited to, network modeling, stability analysis
    of systems with time delays, and control design approaches for networked
    control systems. Experimental and/or theoretical treatments are welcomed.

    Sensor fusion/integration systems in control applications.

    Recent research in multi-sensor integration and fusion systems has proved
    the benefits and robust characteristics of such approaches for a wide
    variety of applications. One of the key benefits is the enhancement of
    sensor data through integration to improve the certainty and quality of the
    information provided. The management and coordination of data to and from
    disparate sensors and actuators requires new techniques in terms of both
    data uncertainty analysis, and data quality assessment. At the same time,
    the use of fused data in control applications requires data integration in
    a real-time context, in the presence of varying network, sensing and
    processing delays. Papers are invited in this symposium on sensor
    fusion/integration techniques for control applications, including, but not
    limited to, fusion/integration architectures, uncertainty management, data
    quality assessment, data integration and control techniques for utilizing
    fused data. Both theoretical and application oriented papers are welcomed.

    Submission Instructions

    Authors are required to submit six copies of their full manuscript to one of
    the symposium organizers for peer review per ASME guidelines. Papers must
    be submitted by February 1, 2001. Authors will be notified of paper
    acceptance by April 1, 2001. All papers will be reviewed for ASME
    International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition only.
