In

the last one decade, there has been extensive study in cooperative and distributed
control both in theoretical aspect and practical development for various
control systems
.

The
motivation is that almost every real system is related to other
systems, and the cooperation
among related systems can result in higher performance, compared with the case
that

single system/control

is involved
. It is known that t
he theoretical issues partly originate from
and are composed of large/decentralized contr
ol and
spectral

analysis based on graph
theory
, and the applications
includ
e

formation of moving vehicles and airplanes, intelligent
group of robotic systems, and etc.


This special session is
aimed at
presenting
some new
/recent

development in
the area of

cooperative and distributed control systems with
both
theory and applications.
In order to
include
wide variety of
insight

and ideas

from various aspects,
the organizer expects related
submissions to join in the session.
