Special Session 1:  “New Technologies and Tools for Intelligent Transportation Systems and Electric Mobility”

Chair-Organizers: Michela Longo (Politecnico di Milano, Italy); Stefano Bracco (University of Genoa, Italy),
email:michela.longo@polimi.it; stefano.bracco@unige.it

Aim: The acronym ITS (Intelligent Transportation System) relates to the adoption of sensing, analysis, control and communication technologies in transportation systems to improve safety, mobility and efficiency. ITS includes a multiplicity of different applications that process and share data to solve congestions in roads, to develop traffic management models, to reduce environmental impact and to raise the benefits of transportation for commercial operators and the community in general. ITS, which is also related to the Internet of Things, consists in the application of different innovative infrastructures and tools, such as Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Building (V2B) and Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) technologies, the two last representing an appealing challenge to promote the diffusion of smart electric mobility systems; moreover, both wireless and wire line communications-based data and electronics equipment have also to be taken into account. The Special Session focuses on the various aspects of advances in Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Computer Science, and their applications, to ITS. It will provide an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss the latest issues and progress in the area. Furthermore, we expect that the conference and its publications will be a trigger for further related research and technology improvements in this important subject.

Topics:The goal of the Special Session is to highlight and address the advances and challenges as well as to provide insights and solutions to open issues associated to the following topics:
- Network optimization
- ITS optimal design
- Optimal planning for electric vehicle charging stations
- Creation of Hubs
- Wireless recharge
- ICT for smart mobility
- Big data analytics for traffic flow
- Simulation models of smart mobility systems
Application domains may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Energy management systems

Special Session 5: New Developments in Consensus-related Problems for Complex Networked Systems

Chair-Organizer:
Associate Prof. Yilun SHANG, Department of Computer and Information Sciences, Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK. Email: shylmath@hotmail.com

Aim: During the last years, consensus problems for complex networked systems composed of interconnected interacting agents have found an ever-increasing number of applications in various areas, such as swarm dynamics, smart grids, sensor networks, intelligent transportation systems, unmanned aerial vehicles, telerobotics and military. The design of consensus protocols takes advantage of nearest neighbor interaction rules, which renders a framework of distributed multi-agent systems so that the group of dynamic agents can reach an agreement or consensus on certain desired cooperative task. The growing complexity of the communication topology and agents' dynamics along with the great demands on system performance brings numerous challenges including consensus under switching topologies, interdependent networks, time-varying transmission delays, parameter variations, uncertainties, nonlinearities, etc. Moreover, deep links between network science and control theory have been gradually revealed within the last couple of years, which shed light into the consensus problem and make it a promising direction.

Topics: The goal of this special session is to highlight and address the advances and challenges as well as providing insights and solutions to open issues associated to the following topics:
• Mathematical modeling and analysis of consensus processes
• Synchronization of complex networks
• Controllability and observability of complex networks
• Distributed computation and distributed estimation
• Coordination in networked systems
• Formation control problems
• Consensus problems in networked dynamical systems
• Consensus related problems in engineering, biological, economic and social sciences
