The focus of this journal is on general theories and methodologies of discrete event dynamic systems (DEDS) and their applications, as well as on practical problems from which some generally applicable theories or methodologies can be formulated. The scope of the journal is defined by its emphasis on the modeling of discrete events by dynamic systems, and on problems of their control and optimization. All papers are peer-reviewed.

J-DEDS covers all aspects of DEDS, including: theory and formal models (supervisory control and diagnosis, Petri nets, Min-Max-plus algebras, DEDS specification, or simulation formalisms), performance analysis, optimization, event-based control and optimal control (perturbation analysis, control synthesis, sample-path-based approaches, AI-based learning schemes, scalable solutions to large and complex systems), and applications (case studies and software engineering). J-DEDS also covers the interface of DEDS with hybrid systems and cyber-physical systems.

  • Publishes high-quality, peer-reviewed papers on the modeling and control of discrete event dynamical systems (DEDS).
  • Presents general theories and methodologies of DEDSs and their applications.
  • Discusses practical problems from which some generally applicable DEDS theories or methodologies can be formulated.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
