The IFAC Conference on Analysis and Design of Hybrid Systems brings together researchers and practitioners in the area of hybrid systems, with backgrounds in control, computer science, and operations research, to provide a forum for discussing and presenting recent results in the fields of hybrid and cyber-physical systems. The 8th ADHS will take place at the University of Colorado Boulder. The event is organized by the Hybrid Control Systems Lab at the University of Colorado Boulder.

ADHS has already a long and rich history. The previous ADHS were held in St Malo, France (2003), Alghero, Italy (2006), Zaragoza, Spain (2009), Eindhoven, The Netherlands (2012), Atlanta, GA, USA (2015), Oxford, UK (2018), and in Brussels, Belgium (2021). In addition, the ADHS series was preceded by the successful conference series on Automation Of Mixed Processes: ADPM 92 in Paris (France), ADPM 94 in Brussels (Belgium), ADPM 98 in Reims (France) and ADPM 2000 in Dortmund (Germany).


Contributions are invited in all areas pertaining to the engineering of hybrid systems including: modelling, specification, verification, analysis, control synthesis, simulation, validation, and implementation. We solicit theoretical as well as applied research papers in the area, both as regular papers, and as tools papers, and case studies. We welcome articles connecting the cognate fields of control theory and formal verification.

Contributions are encouraged on applications of hybrid methods in various fields, such as automotive, avionics, energy and power, mobile and autonomous robotics, process and manufacture industry, transportation and infrastructure networks, communication networks and networked control systems, cyber-physical systems, safety-critical systems, systems and synthetic biology. Please visit the call for papers page for more details.
