The purpose of DHS is to connect researchers working in real-time systems, hybrid systems, control theory, distributed computing, and concurrency theory, in order to advance the subject of distributed hybrid systems.

Distributed hybrid systems, or distributed cyber-physical systems, are abundant. Many of them are safety-critical, but ensuring their correct functioning is very difficult. We believe that new techniques are needed for the analysis and validation of DHS. More precisely, we believe that convergence and interaction of methods and tools from different areas of computer science, engineering, and mathematics is needed in order to advance the subject.

The first DHS workshop was held in Aalborg, Denmark, in August 2017, featuring invited talks by Alessandro Abate, Martin Fränzle, Kim G. Larsen, Martin Raussen, and Rafael Wisniewski. This second edition aims to continue the conversation.

Invited Talks


DHS 2018 will take place at the Computer science lab of École polytechnique in Palaiseau, 20 km south of Paris and easily accessible from Paris by public transportation. The following link to the RATP web site gives instructions for reaching our lab from the Denfert-Rochereau station in Paris.


Registration to DHS 2018 is free, but mandatory. To register, please send and email to indicating your name and institution. Deadline for registration is 20 June 2018.
