The NeCS team has organized the 2nd IFAC Workshop on Distributed Estimation and Control in Networked Systems ( ), an international workshop which was held in Annecy on Sept. 13-14th. Moreover, it has organized the 2nd FeedNetBack Annual Workshop ( ), with one day of Open Workshop ( ) with scientific presentations both from people involved in the FeedNetBack project and from invited speakers, followed by one day of review meeting for the project and a Junior Workshop for FeedNetBack Ph.D. students and postdocs.

Carlos Canudas de Wit was the general chair of the IFAC Conference on Networked Controlled Systems NeCSYS 2010.

He participated to several concertation meetings in the CORDIS reseach program at the ITC-department in the EU. He also participated in the “International Workshop on Future of Control in Transportation Systems” at Sorrento, Italy, on May 29th 2010 ( ). The Workshop was sponsored by the the IEEE Control Systems Society, and by our FeedNetBAck EU project. A report will be available on the CSS published by the IEEE Control Systems Magazine.

He participated as evaluator (Dec. 2009–Jan2010) in the FP7 program “Factories of the Future": FP7-2010-NMP-ICT-FoF, and as reviewer of EU projects in the FP6 program on Embedded Systems and Control (May 2010). He was co-author of the book “Dry clutch control for automotive applications" together with P. Dolcini, and H. Bechart, in Springer, AIC series, 2010.

F. Garin was publications co-chair for the NecSys'09, and the organizer of the Junior Workshop at the FeedNetBack review meeting. She has been a peer-reviewer for international journals (IEEE Trans. on Control, IEEE Trans. on Communic.) and conferences (CDC 2010, NecSys 2010, ACC 2011, IFAC World Congress 2011)

A. Kibangou was a member of the Technical Program Committee of the European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO) 2010. He co-chaired publications in the organization committee of the 2nd IFAC Workshop on Distributed Estimation and Control in Networked Systems (Necsys) . He serves as a reviewer for the following international journals: Signal Processing (Elsevier), IET Signal Processing, Journal of the Franklin Institute, Electronics Letters, Int. J. Modelling, Identification and Control, and also for the national journal e-STA. He served as reviewer for IFAC World Congress 2011, DYCOPS 2010 (International Symposium on Dynamics and Control of Process Systems), ISWCS (International Symposium on Wireless Communication Systems) 2010, and CIFA (Colloque Internationale Froncophone d'Automatique) 2010. He was among the contributors of the trilateral cooperation SVA (Separation of Variables and Applications) sponsored by CNRS (France), RFBR (Russia), and DFG (Germany). Locally, he is the organizer of seminars for the Control Department of GIPSA-LAb. For the Carnot Insitute LSI, he was member of the “Sensor Networks Initiative" of the ICT-MNT Carnot alliance. In this framework, he was a contributor to a white book devoted to the vision of the ICT-MNT Carnot alliance on Internet of things.

O. Sename is member of the IFAC Technical committees `Linear systems' and `Automotive control', and develops some formal international collaborations with Hungary and Mexico. He is responsible of the French ANR project INOVE 2010-2014.

A. Seuret is co-animator of the “Time-delay System" group (GDR SAR) since March 2008. He is leader of a Workpackage of the European Project FeedNetBack. He has been the vice-general chair for the NecSys'10, and he has been a member of the International Program Committee of the IEEE Conference on Control and Application (CCA'09) and of the IFAC Workshop on Time-delay Systems (TDS'10). He is also reviewer for the major Journals and Conferences of the field. Among them, there are journals (IEEE Trans. on Automatic Control, Automatica, System Control and Letter, International Journal of Systems Science), conferences (Conference on Decision and Control (CDC), American Control Conference (ACC), IFAC Workshops on Robust Control (ROCOND) and on Time Delay Systems (TDS)).

D. Simon is member of the RTNS'10 (international conference on Real Time and Network Systems) program committee. Publication chair for the NecSys'10 (Estimation and Control of Networked Systems) IFAC workshop. Reviewer for the PhD defence of I. Diouri (CRAN Nancy, October 2010). Reviewer for the Discrete Event Dynamic Systems and Control Engineering Practice journals. (Grolon).
