The network control project deals with the Network Control Problem (NCP); a problem defined by this group. The NCP deals with 2 coupled subproblems: the selection of a set of control nodes within a complex network and the generation of control sequence signals in order to meet some control objective. Our work has been published in the SNAM and CSN journals and at the ASONAM and Social Computing conferences.
