This workshop aims to establish a connection between various young researchers working on Control Theory.

The themes area is intentionally broad and  the presence of some researchers from other nationally and internationally relevant institutes guarantees a sound scientific consistence of the event.






The event takes place at Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI)

Viale Francesco Crispi, 7

67100 L'Aquila AQ




The event will be advertised through the standard channels of the community targeting a group of ~20 participants, ideally PhD students and young researchers of the area.
The official language of the event will be English.


Participation is free, registration is required (via login on the system).

The optimal control design for finite and infinite-dimensional dynamical systems has become a topic of growing interest in engineering and mathematics communities.
The main standard solution tools for this problem are the application of trajectory optimization techniques, based on optimality conditions or the application of dynamic programming techniques, which leads to a characterization of the optimal value function as the unique viscosity solution of a completely non-linear equation of Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman, where the solution is globally solved in the state space of the initial configurations.

The workshop focuses on some recent developments in Control Theory such as Differential Systems Control, PDE Control, Mean Field Games. Special attention will be paid to applications in Engineering, Social Sciences, Biology as the  multi-agent system optimization, modeling of crowds of pedestrians, control of  traffic flows.
