This book gathers selected papers presented at the Joint CTS-HYCON Workshop on Nonlinear and Hybrid Control, held at Paris Sorbonne University (Paris IV) on 10-12 July 2006. The aim of this workshop was to promote exchanges of ideas and experiences and reinforce scientific contacts on nonlinear and hybrid control, as well as to benefit from pedagogical talks from invited experts: Frank Allgower and Christian Ebenbauer, John Baras, Georges Bastin, Alexandre M. Bayen, Antonio Bicchi, Eduardo Camacho, Bronislaw Jakubczyk, Karl H Johansson, John Lygeros, Henk Nijmeijer, Gauthier Sallet, Shankar Sastry, Arjan van der Schaft, Rodolphe Sepulchre, Andrew Teel and Claire Tomlin. As such, this book contains timely theoretical or/and applied contributions to the analysis and control of nonlinear or/and hybrid systems.
