    Abstract = {Water resources management is a key challenge that will become even more crucial in the years ahead. From a system-theoretic viewpoint, there is a need to develop rigorous design and analysis tools for control, fault diagnosis and security of water distribution networks. This work develops a mathematical framework suitable for fault diagnosis and security in water systems; in addition it investigates the problem of determining a suitable set of locations for sensor placement in large-scale drinking water distribution networks such that contaminant detection is optimized. This work contributes to the research by presenting a problem formulation were the state-space representation of the propagation and reaction dynamics is coupled with the impact dynamics describing the #x201C;damage #x201D; caused by a contamination of the water distribution network. We propose a solution methodology for the sensor-placement problem by considering several risk-objectives, and by utilizing various optimization and evolutionary computation techniques. To illustrate the methodology, we present results of a simplified and a real water distribution network.},

Faults are signals affecting the states, and their impact is measured based on certain epidemiological dynamics. A multi-objective optimization problem is formulated for minimizing various risk-related objectives.},

An initial attempt to develop a problem formulation is presented, suitable for mathematical analysis and design. Multiple risk-related objectives are minimized in order to compute the Pareto front of a set of possible solutions; the considered objectives are the contamination impact average, worst-case and worst-cases average. A multi-objective optimization methodology suitable for considering more that one objective function is examined and solved using a multiple-objective evolutionary algorithm.},
