Recently, dynamical systems to be treated in various
fields of engineering have become large and complex, and
more high level control is required as seen in energy
networks, meteorological phenomena and bio systems, and so
This motivates us to develop a new research direction so
called "Glocal Control", which means that the global
purpose is achieved by only local actions.
This talk starts with the background and main idea of
"Glocal Control," and a new unified framework for
hierarchical large-scale networked dynamical systems is
introduced. We then provide some fundamental results on
stability, cooperative stabilization, robust stability,
and hierarchical decentralized control in this framework
and show some applications. A list of future
research directions is presented at the end of the talk.

degrees in engineering all from Tokyo Institute of
Technology, Tokyo, Japan, in 1974, 1976, and 1981,
In 1984, he joined Tokyo Institute of Technology as an
Associate Professor and has served as a Full Professor for
ten years. Since 2002 he has been a Full Professor of the
Department of Information Physics and Computing, The
University of Tokyo. His current research interests are in
robust control, decentralized cooperative control for
large-scale networked dynamical systems, system biology,
