Indo-US Workshop on System of Systems Engineering
Mo Jamshidi, University of Texas, San Antonio
Laxmidhar Behera,Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur
Dates & Venue: 26-28 October 2009, Kanpur
With the advancement of technology, we are confronted with very large scale systems involving multiple disciplines such as sensor networks, collaborative robotics, power-grid, city traffic and airport operation. The field of System of Systems is an interdisciplinary area that brings together these various areas. An Indo-US workshop on System of Systems Engineering in Large Scale Systemswas organized by Dr. Laxmidhar Behera (IIT Kanpur) andProf. Mo Jamshidi (University of Texas at San Antonio). The workshop provided a unique opportunity for experts from both countries to share and decipher research expertise to broaden the scope of system of systems studies. Topics covered included System of Systems Engineering in Land, Air and Sea Rovers; Robotics; Fuzzy Systems; Modeling and Simulation; Space Applications; Boeing’s Approach to E-enabling Commercial Airlines; Sensor Networks; Computational Intelligence in Control and Optimization; Reactor Control; Static and Dynamic Optimization; and, Aerospace Systems. The event was attended by 30 participants from academia, research laboratories and industry.
