7th International Young Researchers Workshop on Geometry, Mechanics and Control.

Dec 17 2012 - 09:00

Venue: 

ICMAT, Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (CSIC-UAM-UC3M-UCM), Madrid, Spain.

Short description of the event: 

The 7th International Young Researchers Workshop on Geometry, Mechanics and Control intends to bring together young researchers working in geometric mechanics and control theory and to offer a platform to present the results of their research to an international audience. The main idea of this conference is to offer 3 courses of 4 hours which serve as an introduction to different topics related to geometric structures in mechanics and control theory. The courses will be at a PhD level. Along with the courses, there will be short talks (30 minutes) by the participants willing to present their results. Moreover, there will be a poster session. Attendance is, of course, open to anyone, but in particular young researchers (PhD-students, recent PhD's) are allowed to deliver a talk or present a poster at this meeting.
Courses:
Sina Ober-Blöbaum (University of Paderborn, Germany): Discrete mechanics and optimal control theory.
Joris Vankerschaver (Imperial College London, UK): The geometry of the diffeomorphism group: applications in fluid dynamics and imaging.
San Vu Ngoc (Université de Rennes 1, France): Integrable systems.

Important dates:

Abstract submission deadline for short talks and posters: October 31, 2012.

Registration deadline: November 16, 2012.
