5 th International Conference on Control and Fault-Tolerant Systems, SysTol’21
It is our pleasure to welcome you at Saint Raphaël on the French Riviera from September 29 th to October 1 st for the fifth edition of SysTol !
Scope of SysTol’21 – Special focus on Cybersecurity
In addition with emerging fault-tolerant system control approaches generally addressed in the successive editions of SysTol, Cybersecurity will play a special role in the fifth edition of SysTol Conference. For decades industrial control systems have been targeted by hackers who use weaknesses in security systems to launch attacks affecting the physical system. These cyber attacks can cause significant damage to the target system, its environment and product quality or production equipment. It then becomes vital to develop detection mechanisms through the implementation of control filters close to the process under control. In this context, intrusion detection systems ensure that the functionality of the system is respected despite attacks, whether in degraded mode.
The conference will bring together academics, engineers and practitioners active in the fields of fault diagnosis, fault tolerant control and their application in process monitoring and maintenance. The conference main aims are:
– to showcase current research results and recent developments of intelligent techniques;
– to present practical applications and emphasize open problems;
– to provide a forum for industry to signal its needs and priorities.
The four previous editions of the International Conference on Control and Fault-Tolerant Systems (SysTol’10, ’13, 16’, 19’) were successful and demonstrated the demand for establishing a permanent scientific forum in the general area of system monitoring, fault diagnosis and fault-tolerant control. The conference on Control and Fault-Tolerant Systems (SysTol’21), through its technical program, will provide a unique opportunity for the academic and industrial community to formulate new challenges, share solutions and discuss future research directions. Topics of SysTol’21 includes (but are not limited to):
Fault detection and isolation
Fault tolerant control / fault recovery
Networked control system
Discrete event and hybrid systems
Design for reliability and safety
Data driven methods
Industrial applications – Case studies
Power plants / energy transport
Aeronautics / aerospace
Mining and mineral and metal processing
Mechatronic and robotic
