The school is targeted at Ph.D. students (and young researchers) with the opportunity to learn the main concepts as well as the recent results in the field discrete event systems theory and application.

The PhD school will include lectures based on discrete event system modeling (using Petri nets, automata or max-plus algebra), supervisory control including symbolic computation/computational methods in supervisory control, formal methods in control, diagnosis-opacity-privacy-security, discrete event systems approaches to cyber physical systems and Industry 4.0

The course will be organized in nine two-hours lectures and a final discussion and, to meet the didactic objectives, it will require a workload of two ECTS credits. At the end of the course each participant will receive a simple certificate of attendance. Participants wishing to obtain ECTS credits must inform the school organizers in the registration phase and pass an exam at the end of the course.
