Control theory is an interdisciplinary ﬁeld that is located at the crossroads of pure and applied mathematics with systems engineering and the sciences. Recently, deep interactions are emerging with new application areas, such as systems biology, quantum control and information technology. In order to address the new challenges posed by the new application disciplines, a special focus of this workshop has been on the interaction between control theory and mathematical systems biology. To complement these more biology oriented focus, a series of lectures in this workshop was devoted to the control of networks of systems, fundamentals of nonlinear control systems, model reduction and identiﬁcation, algorithmic aspects in control, as well as open problems in control.
