The 2nd Symposium on the COntrol of NEtwork Systems (SCONES) will be held on Monday, October 16 and Tuesday, October 17, 2017, at the Photonics Center, Room 906, on the campus of Boston University in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

SCONES is associated with the IEEE Transactions on Control of Network Systems (TCNS), a publication sponsored by the  IEEE Control Systems Society and technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, the IEEE Communications Society, the IEEE Computer Society, and the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. Its purpose is to help coalesce and broaden the scientific community working on questions relating to networks and control, either mathematical and/or of interest to a variety of application domains. SCONES 2017 is the second such symposium; information on the first can be found at this site.

SCONES 2017 will feature invited talks from research leaders and a contributed poster session. Themes of emphasis this year include: game theory, optimization, power networks, multi-agent and robotic networks, social networks, transportation networks, and biological networks.
