Summer School and Workshop "New Trends in Optimal Control", Ravello, Italy

3-7 September 2012

ARGOMENTI: International Area

VENUE: The school & workshop will take place at the "Biblioteca Francescana" in Ravello (Salerno), Italy.

AIMS: The week aims to offer a general overview of some recent topics in the area of optimal control for ordinary differential equations, with a pecial emphasis on pde's techniques, Hamilton-Jacobi equations, differential games and singular problems. Some emerging topics related to optimal control will be also presented. This event is part of the training activity of the SADCO ITN ( and is
also open to other participants.

The school will start on September 3, 2012, and will end on September 6, 2012.
Five courses will be delivered:
* Zvi ARTSTEIN, Weizmann Institute: "Control of coupled fast and slow dynamics"
* Piermarco CANNARSA and Carlo SINESTRARI, Università di Roma "Tor Vergata": "Optimal
control, Hamilton-Jacobi equations and singularities in euclidean and riemaniann spaces"
* Pierre CARDALIAGUET, Université Paris IX Dauphine: "Optimal control and mean field games"
* Matt R. JAMES, Australian National University: "Quantum control"
* Benedetto PICCOLI, Rutgers University, Camden: "Intelligent groups and sparse controls"

There will be time for discussions every day after the end of the lectures. A poster session is also planned for the afternoon of September 4.

WORKSHOP (Friday, September 7)
Following the school there will be a one day workshop with several talks given by leading experts in the field. The workshop program will be available in April on the website of the conference.

A partial financial support is available for young researchers selected by their CV and recommendation letters.
