ANNOUNCEMENT

The sixth edition of the International Summer School on Geometry, Mechanics, and Control will be held in La Cristalera (Madrid, Spain) and will take place on June 22-26, 2012 (http://gmcnetwork.org/?q=activity-detaill/665 )

The school is oriented to young researchers, Ph.D. students and postdoctoral fellows in Mathematics, Physics and Engineering. It is intended to present an up-to-date view of some fundamental issues in topics around three axes: Geometry, Mechanics and Control. Relationships between them will be clearly presented. In addition, participants’ attentions will be drawn to some open problems, above all related to applications. You may find information about previous editions in the following links
