The spirit of this conference is to gather researchers from different communities but exploiting common advanced methodologies and tools for the purposes of evaluation, design, and model reduction. Traditionally, communities like the Communication Network, Computer Science, Control, Operation Research, and Signal Processing communities are involved in VALUETOOLS but the organization and steering committees encourage any community to contribute and share its know-how with other communities.
