A transformation is underway in how technologists design, build, and operate the increasingly complex, large-scale, and distributed systems that are becoming the objects of our engineering undertakings. Instead of relying primarily on our knowledge of immutable scientific laws, we must now supplement-and in some cases even supplant-this knowledge with information extracted from empirical data. This data-centric turn has been accelerated by progress in sensor and data storage technologies. It has resulted in the establishment of new disciplines-data mining and knowledge discovery from data-and in renewed interest in areas such as machine learning, statistical estimation, and system identification.

A number of application domains are already reaping the benefits of this new paradigm, from direct marketing to financial forecasting. Successful broad-based applications in some other domains, however, still require research challenges to be overcome. In particular, intricacies associated with dynamics, feedback, and physicality must be resolved before we can move beyond data-centric forecasting and prediction in non-real-time domains and toward data-driven control and optimization of complex engineering systems.

Meeting these challenges requires a multidisciplinary effort, which this workshop hopes to promote. We will bring together experts in relevant areas of control and optimization with experts in statistics, learning theory, and databases. In addition, applied researchers who can articulate the present and future automation needs in economically important industries that are expected to be some of the primary beneficiaries of data-driven control and optimization will also participate. Notable among these industry sectors are electric power, process automation, and communication networks.
