5th International Conference on Control and Fault-Tolerant Systems

September 29th, 30th and October 1st, 2021 – Saint-Raphaël, France

Welcome to SysTol'21

It is our pleasure to welcome you in Saint-Raphaël on the French Riviera from September 29th to October 1st for the fifth edition of SysTol!

The SysTol'21 organizing committee is strongly committed to organize the conference on the dates scheduled in Saint Raphaël. If health restrictions prevent travel between countries or within countries, the organization will provide the possibility to run the conference remotely using adequate means of communication. However, we sincerely hope to see you all in Saint Raphaël on the French Riviera !

Special focus on Cybersecurity

In addition to emerging fault-tolerant control systems generally addressed in the successive editions of SysTol, Cybersecurity will play a special role in the fifth edition of SysTol Conference. For decades industrial control systems have been the target of by hackers who use weaknesses in security systems to launch attacks affecting the physical system. These cyber attacks can cause significant damage to the target system, its environment and product quality or production equipment. It then becomes vital to develop detection mechanisms by implementing control filters close to the controlled process. In this context, intrusion detection systems guarantee that the functionality of the system is respected despite attacks, whether in degraded mode.

The conference will bring together academics, engineers and practitioners active in the fields of fault diagnosis, fault tolerant control and their application in process monitoring and maintenance. The conference main aims are:

  • to showcase current research results and recent developments in intelligent techniques,
  • to present practical applications and emphasize open issues,
  • to provide a forum for industry to communicate its needs and priorities.
Main topics of interest are available here.

The four previous editions of the International Conference on Control and Fault-Tolerant Systems (SysTol’10, ‘13, ‘16, ‘19) were successful and demonstrated the needs to establish a permanent scientific forum in the general field of system monitoring, fault diagnosis and fault-tolerant control. The conference on Control and Fault-Tolerant Systems (SysTol’21), through its technical program, will provide a unique opportunity for the academic and industrial community to formulate new challenges, share solutions and discuss future research directions.
