The past two decades have witness an upsurge in the scientific interest to harness the benefits of the event-based paradigm applied to a wide spectrum of engineering disciplines including control, communication, signal processing, and electronic instrumentation. The event-based systems, in which the system activities are triggered by events instead of progression of time, exhibit certain advantages over other approaches, such as time-triggered, for instance, in the resource-constrained applications. Specific application areas include energy-efficient control over wireless networks, energy-efficient clockless circuits and signal processing chains, bio-inspired computing architectures, or frame-free event-driven vision systems, to mention a few.
The aim of the conference is to provide a platform for the research communities that work in diverse event-based application areas to exchange new ideas and research results, to explore synergies, and to advance theoretical foundations of the event-based paradigm.
Over the now seven years since the beginning of this series, the conference hosted some of the leading researches and practitioners from academia, research establishments, and industry, from all over the world: Panos Antsaklis, University of Notre Dame, USA; John Baras, University of Maryland, USA; Terry Blevins, Emerson, USA; Christos Cassandras, Boston University, USA; Tobi Delbrück, ETH Zurich, Switzerland; Maurice Heemels, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands; Karl Henrik Johansson, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden; Jan Lunze, Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany; Nguyen T. Thao, The City College of New York, USA; Yannis Tsividis, Columbia University, USA; Jinyuan Wu, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, USA; Gianluca Zanetto, TeamWare, Italy – to mention some.
