The interdisciplinary field of Discrete Event Systems (DES) combines different formalisms, methodologies and tools from control, computer science and operations research. The research activity in this field is driven by the needs of many different applications domains: manufacturing, process control, supervisory systems, software engineering, transportation, and so on. Discrete Event Systems is now a mature field and many interesting applications have been developed.
The Workshop Series on Discrete Event Systems started in 1992 and has been held every two years. It aims to provide researchers from different fields (control theoreticians and control engineers, software engineers and computer scientists, operations research specialists) with an opportunity to exchange information and new ideas, and to discuss new developments in the field of DES theory and application.
The workshop covers all topics in discrete event theory and applications, including (but not limited to) the following:
