F.J. Seagull, Yan Xiao, C. Plasters
SMC'03 Conference Proceedings. 2003 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man and Cybernetics. Conference Theme - System Security and Assurance (Cat. No.03CH37483)  
Models of sampling for coordination and scheduling must consider resolving missing or ambiguous data points.  ...  Coordination of dynamic schedules in complex environments requires the sampling of current status of the system. In many such systems, the information is unavailable or unreliable.  ...  Any opinions or findings expressed are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the funding agencies.  ...
