Title: Some Simple But Useful Contributions To Nonlinear
Observer Design

 

Abstract: In this talk I will address the problem of observer design for nonlinear systems satisfying some nonlinear properties. It is mainly devoted to Linear Matrix Inequality (LMI) based methods and their use to improve observer design for a large class of nonlinear systems. I will speak about LMI relaxation techniques and show why we are motivated to do that. I will show the advantages and the limits of the LMI-based techniques, and how to exploit such advantages, and how to overcome such limits. This will be shown particularly through some simple examples for which LMI approaches cannot work. Hence some guidelines to overcome this limitation will be briefly presented.
A second part of the talk will be dedicated to simple and useful contributions to high-gain observer design, where some techniques to improve performances of the standard high gain observer will be presented. I will show how to use LMIs to reduce the values of the high gain. We will also demonstrate that system state augmentation can allow improving performances of high-gain observer. Finally, prospects will be provided to deal with some new directions on nonlinear observer design by exploiting hybrid estimation architectures and learning-based techniques from Artificial Intelligence based algorithms.
To summarize, this talk will address the following items:

  •  An introduction to nonlinear observer design: motivation and preliminaries
  •  LMI-based techniques and feasibility improvements: advantages and limits of LMIs
  •  Solutions to overcome the limitations: hybrid architectures, and so on
  •  Simple and useful contributions to high-gain observer
  •  New directions in nonlinear estimation: some guidelines to improve more the algorithms.

Title: Fault-Tolerant Scheduling In Large Scale Real-Time
Distributed Systems

 

Abstract: One of the key challenges in large scale distributed systems is the effective management of the distributed resources for the incoming workload. Distributed systems are often real-time as they are used for serving delay-sensitive applications. It is important to employ appropriate resource allocation and scheduling techniques in order to meeting deadlines and offer QoS to the users. On the other hand, applications are becoming more and more complex and computationally intensive consisting of multiple tasks. In such real-time systems, it is often more desirable for an application to meet its deadline by producing an approximate—but still of acceptable quality—result, rather than producing a precise result late.
Cloud computing, as a large scale distributed computing paradigm, has been widely used for the deployment of complex computationally demanding and delay-sensitive applications. However, mechanisms to resolve other issues such as fault tolerance are necessary. As the adoption of cloud computing continues to gain momentum, the arising challenges of fault-tolerant scheduling policies for parallel applications on such platforms need to be addressed. Therefore, fault tolerance is one of the most crucial aspects of scheduling in clouds.

Title: Trends In Power Transformer Diagnostic Techniques

 

Abstract:Power transformers are vital in energy delivering and distributing. Their reliability is a significant guarantee for safe and stable operation of any power grid. Any power transformer outage has a dramatic financial consequence not only for utilities but also for interconnected customers. It is therefore of utmost importance to detect incipient failure to avoid catastrophic blackouts. The Achilles’ heel of these important machines is their insulation system, made of oil and cellulosic paper. Since the service reliability of these machines largely depends upon the condition of their internal insulation system, number of methods were developed/improved to understand and monitor their degradation. During the last decades, ways to prevent electrical outages, extend their life expectancy and improve preventive maintenance procedures have become increasingly important. Varieties of electrical and physicochemical diagnostic techniques were developed so far for insulation condition monitoring of power transformers. This lecture presents a comprehensive review of transformers’ insulation condition assessment including both challenges and outlook circa 2021.

Title:How And Why The Ransom Attack On Industrial Control System Of Us Gas Pipeline Was Successful

 

Abstract:Recently Colonial Pipeline, an American oil pipeline system that originates in Houston, Texas, and carries gasoline and jet fuel mainly to the Southeastern United States, suffered a ransomware cyberattack. The attack triggered the failure of control automation equipment managing the pipeline.
Distributed Control System (DCS) is the extensively used automation control system in the oil and gas industry, and communication systems play a key role as they provide connectivity among the components of distributed control systems. These components demand a high level of cybersecurity for the communication channels. This talk focuses on how the ransom attack leads to the failure of the control automation system in the US Gas Pipeline.
The talk is divided into three sections. Section 1 provides an insight on how security evolved into cybersecurity, and why cybersecurity is such a big concern for DCS. Section 2 introduces a DCS used in the oil and gas industry, and section 3 explains the how’s and why’s of the ransom attack.
The talk will provide food for thought to the students and researchers on how to explore innovative techniques and conduct Cyber Security related research. It will also be beneficial for government policymakers, industry leaders, decision-makers, and corporate researchers.

Title: Algorithms To Discover Interesting Patterns To Improve The Design Of Intelligent Systems

 

Abstract:Today, intelligent systems play an important role in various domains such as for factory automation, education, the management of telecommunication networks and medical care. To build intelligent systems, high-quality data is generally required. Moreover, these systems can also yield large amounts of data such usage logs, alarm logs, images, videos, and data collected from sensors, and data received from other systems. Due to the large volumes of data, managing the data generated by intelligent systems to gain insights and improve these systems is thus a key challenge. It is also desirable to be able to extract information or models from data that are easily understandable by humans.

Based on these objectives, this talk will discuss the use of data mining algorithms for discovering interesting and useful patterns in symbolic data generated from intelligent systems. The talk will first briefly review early study on designing algorithms for identifying frequent patterns can be used for instance to identify frequent alarms or faults in telecommunication networks. Then, an overview of recent challenges and advances will be presented to identify other types of interesting patterns in more complex data. Topics that will be discussed include high utility patterns, locally interesting patterns, and periodic patterns. Lastly, the SPMF open-source software will be mentioned and opportunities related to the combination of pattern mining algorithms with traditional artificial intelligence techniques for intelligent systems will be discussed.

Title:Le rôle de la Programmation Neurolinguistique pour le
développement d’une Recherche Scientifique créative

 

Abstract:Le monde de la Recherche Scientifique est certes un monde passionnant, mais qui peut être aussi associé à plusieurs défis :
Comment bien communiquer ? Comment augmenter l’efficacité du travail ? Comment éviter les conflits ? Comment faire pour qu’un encadreur soit une source d’inspiration et non pas une source de stress ? Toutes ces questions s’inscrivent aujourd’hui dans le domaine du développement personnel qui représente un atout majeur pour le développement des compétences des chercheurs. En effet, la PNL (Programmation Neurolinguistique) joue un rôle déterminant pour éliminer les croyances limitantes, les mauvaises habitudes, les blocages psychiques, et installer des croyances aidantes, des bonnes habitudes et une bonne confiance en soi. Le but de cette conférence est de mettre en valeur quelques techniques utilisées en PNL permettant aux chercheurs et aux encadreurs de mieux communiquer afin d’installer un bon environnement permettant une recherche efficace et créative.

IEEE Ethical Requirements for Authors

The IEEE requires that all authors wishing to present a paper declare that:

  • The paper is substantially original and that no paper substantially similar in content has been submitted or will be submitted to any other conference or journal during the IC_ASET 2022 review period.
  • The paper does not contain any plagiarism, and
  • The paper will be presented by the author or a co-author in person.

The program committee chairs retain the right to eliminate any papers in violation of these requirements and to exclude the authors of such papers from future ASET community activities.

PLAGIARISM TEST REQUIREMENTS

Since IC_ASET will be submitted to IEEE Xplore which policy requires all IEEE content to be screened for possible plagiarism, IC_ASET’2022 has access to the CrossCheck database and has scanned all submitted papers.
