In this paper, intermittent control scheme is adopted to investigate the exponential synchronization of complex delayed dynamical networks with uncertain parameters. Based on Lyapunov function method and mathematical analysis technique, some novel and useful criteria for exponential synchronization are established. Finally, two numerical simulations are given to illustrate the effectiveness and correctness of the derived theoretical results.
