Awarded to researchers at the University of L’Aquila the “Best Application Paper Award” of the European Control Conference 2015


The European Control Conference (ECC) is organized every year under the auspices of the European Control Association (EUCA) and with the technical sponsorship of the IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS) and the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC). The conference aims to combine academic and industrial expertise in automation in order to promote scientific cooperation and trade within the EU and between Europe and other parts of the world. Each year the Organizing Committee of the European Control Conference awards as the “Best Application Paper” the scientific article that best applies advanced control techniques to a relevant industrial application. Based on the assessments of the review process only a limited number of papers is nominated for the award, and a committee chooses the most outstanding one.

The “Best Application Paper Award” of the 14th European Control Conference (, held in Linz, Austria, was assigned to the article entitled “Further results on fault detection and isolation of malicious nodes in Multi-hop Control Networks”, authored by Alessandro D’Innocenzo, Francesco Smarra and Maria Domenica Di Benedetto of the Center of Excellence DEWS, Department of Information Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics of the University of L’Aquila.

The study described in the paper is closely related to the activities carried out within the INCIPICT project.
