Understanding and Controlling of Complex Systems


KU Leuven

Scientific Computing research group

The Scientific Computing research group focuses on the development of numerical methods, algorithms and software for large-scale simulation in science and engineering. Application areas include fluid dynamics, magneto-hydrodynamics, material science, electromagnetic systems and bioprocesses. Other research topics include numerical methods for control and optimization, and computational geometry.

Ecole Centrale de Lille


CRIStAL (Research center in Computer Science, Signal and Automatic Control of Lille) is a laboratory of the National Center for Scientific Research, University Lille 1 and Ecole Centrale de Lille in partnership with University Lille 3, Inria and Institut Mines Telecom. The main CRIStAL Research activities involve topics related to major scientific and social issues such as Big Data, software, image and its uses, human-computer interaction, robotics, control and supervision of large systems, intelligent vehicle systems, bio-informatics ... with applications in retails, technologies for health, smart grids.
The group mostly concerned with UCoCoS is CO2: Control and scientific Computing.

Eindhoven University of Technology

Dynamics and Control Group

The dynamic properties of mechanical systems almost always involve physical and geometrical nonlinearities, possibly a large number of degrees of freedom with interactions between them, and often also a relatively high speed of operation. The combination of these properties easily leads to difficulties in modeling and analysis, and thereby also in successfully implementing a model-based controller design in practice. This is the basic challenge throughout the research in the Dynamics and Control group. Clearly, the ambition of the group is to work at the forefront of today’s technology, and to aim at a highly recognisable research stature.

TNO - Nederlandse Organisatie voor Toegepast Natuurwetenschappelijk Onderzoek

TNO is an independent research organisation founded in 1932 that employs some 3,000 specialists. It focuses on transitions or changes in five social themes: Industry; Healthy Living; Defence, Safety & Security; Urbanisation and Energy. As an organisation regulated by public law, it is independent: not part of any government, university or company.
The group involved in UCoCoS is Integrated Vehicle Safety, which focusses on cooperative control of road vehicles to improve safety, road throughput, fuel consumption, and emissions.

EOS Innovation

EOS innovation is an SME that develops ‘e-vigilante’, which is a robot designed for indoor surveillance of warehouses and industrial sites. It reduces the costs and the risks associated with security and optimizes the indoor surveillance on monitored sites. Mobile, autonomous and versatile, when e-vigilante detects an anomaly, while it is on its automatic pre-programmed patrol rounds, it immediately alerts the remote monitoring operator. The operator can then, in real time, remotely take over the robot and dispel doubt using e-vigilante's camera, audio and speakers system.

Innovation Centre of Contactless Technologies

Innovation center for contactless technologies, the CITC is a non profit organization located in Lille (Northern France). It is a centre for resources, experimentations and technical expertise in terms of identification, traceability, mobility and geolocation, which aims to develop an ecosytem specialized in the Internet of Things.

Inria Lille North-Europe

Public science and technology institution established in 1967, Inria is the only French public research body fully dedicated to computational sciences. Combining computer sciences with mathematics, Inria’s 3449 researchers strive to invent the digital technologies of the future. The Inria Research Centre in Lille is headed by Professor David Simplot-Ryl.
The project-teams mostly concerned with UCoCoS are Non-A (Non-Asymptotic estimation for online systems) and FUN (self-organizing Future Ubiquitous Networks).
