Working Groups


The aim in our TC 9.2. is to stimulate research and education on the topic of Systems and Control for Societal Impact:

by encouraging (fundamental, technical, applied) Systems and Control approaches, including their new foreseen combinations with Learning, Optimization, Communication (5G), Human and Social Sciences,  in order to design new developments in two main directions:

  • Axis 1: Maximizing positive impacts regarding the wellbeing of the society (Healthcare, Mobility and Cities, Industrial Systems,…) around the world by carefully taking into account diversity, security, sustainability, …
  • Axis 2: Minimizing negative impacts on human and his environment by ensuring ethical values.

… in particular in domains not yet (or not enough) studied in our community (e.g. Social Networks, Emotional robotics, …)

Investigation on - potential, post-deployment, and by pre-design - human and social impact of systems and control in society as described in the scope are fundamental to guide the design.
