The topics and lecturers are:

"Control Theory of Digitally Networked Dynamical Systems"
Professor Jan Lunze
Universität Bochum, Germany

"Optimal Control Techniques"
Professor Matthias Gerdts
Universität der Bundeswehr München, Germany

All participants will attend both courses. Each day, there will be 90 minutes of lecture on both courses. Each morning, example sheets to be worked on in the afternoon, and example classes in the evening. See the website for the complete programme.

The school is addressed to postgraduate students and postdocs in control, either in mathematics or engineering, very good graduate students are also welcome. We would be grateful if you could pass on this information to any potential candidates.

The location has a capacity for 40 participants. Early registrations are encouraged.

The cost for the hotel including full board per person is: EUR 510,- for a single and EUR 410,- for a double room.
