with special emphasis to electrical and communication networks,
electronic and control systems, data collection and mining, and
management of large engineering systems.

*** Technical Programme ***

The workshop will consist of oral presentations held over a two and a
half day period with contributed and invited papers. There will also
be a poster session.

*** Papers ***

Papers should cover original, and not previously published results on
analysis, modelling and control of complex systems, including but not
restricted to the following topics:

1. Power Systems
	1a. Dynamic Online Security Assessment
	1b. Smart grids automation & control
	1c. Distributed Generation Systems
2. Communication Networks
	2a. Network and service interoperability and security
	2b. Internet of the future
	2c. Adaptive and Self-Organizing Networks
3. Large and Complex Agent-based systems
4. Cooperative robotics for critical applications
5. Management of large and complex engineering systems
6. Critical Infrastructures

Papers accepted for presentation at COMPENG will appear in the
IEEExplore Digital Library.

*** Conference Location ***

COMPENG will take place in Roma, Italy, at the Aula Magna of the
Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche building, v.Aldo Moro 8, in easy

the IEEE PDFExpress(TM) conversion system.

Length is 3 pages including tables and figures for contributed papers
and 6 pages for invited papers.

Accepted papers will be printed in the Conference Proceedings,
published by IEEE CPS (Conference Publishing Service) and distributed
to all participants, and will also be included in the IEEE Digital
Library. A special issue of an IEEE Journal collecting selected papers
presented at COMPENG is planned after the workshop.

Perspective Authors should send by October 1, 2009, a draft of their
paper (template on the web) to the Conference Secretariat (TBC)

Notification of acceptance will be e-mailed to Authors by November 15,
and the preliminary program will be issued on the conference website.
Camera-Ready papers must be submitted within November 30.

The final program of COMPENG will be posted by December 30 on the
Conference website.
