The 4th HYCON2 PhD School on Control of Networked and Large-Scale Systems took place on June 21-24, 2011 in Trento, Italy.

Selected speakers lectured during the school covering the basic concepts and results on stability and control of networked control systems, wireless communication, event-triggered control, communication constraints, consensus algorithms, decentralized control, distributed optimization, model predictive control, real-time control, and fundamental large-scale applications like power and traffic networks.

The school was targeted at graduate students and researchers who wanted to learn the main concepts of control of networked and large-scale systems, as well as at graduate students and postgraduate researchers already working in this field. The program of the school included four full days of lectures, interleaved by enough time slots to allow scientific discussions among the participants and with the speakers.

The school was co-organized by the European Network of Excellence "HYCON2: HighlY-COmplex and Networked CONtrol systems", by the Technical Committee on Hybrid Systems of the IEEE Control Systems Society, and co-sponsored by the University of Trento, Italy.

The school followed an established successful tradition of organizing biannual international PhD schools. The 1st HYCON PhD School on Hybrid Systems, the 2nd HYCON PhD School on Hybrid Systems, and the 3rd WIDE PhD School on Networked Control Systems took place in 2005, 2007, and 2009, respectively, in Siena, Italy. On these four schools, top researchers in the field educated over 400 PhD students from all over the world on a broad range of topics.
