In this paper, the practical prescribed-time bipartite consensus problem of linear multiagent systems with a connected structurally balanced signed graph is investigated by using event-triggered mechanism. Novel event-triggered control law and triggering condition are proposed for each agent, in which the sampled states of agent and its neighbors are needed. By using the algebraic graph theory and Lyapunov stability theory, it is verified that the practical bipartite consensus can be achieved

The feasibility of the presented control strategy is validated by a simulation result.
