Sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Control and Systems Theory
The field of control theory is central to a wide range of aeronautic, aerospace, industrial, automotive and advanced technological systems and increasingly recognized as fundamental for emerging fields ranging from nanotechnology to cell regulation. In addition to its ubiquity for process regulation in the physical sciences, control concepts now pervade the biological, computer, and social sciences. This conference will showcase a wide range of topics in control and systems theory. The topics and applications include real-time optimization and data assimilation, cellular and biological regulation, control techniques for financial mathematics, cooperative control for unmanned autonomous vehicles, biomedical control, risk sensitive control and filtering, control of smart systems, flow control and quantum control. This conference is a continuation of a series of meetings started 1989 in San Francisco. In 2007 it will return to San Francisco.
The recipient of the 2007 W.T. and Idalia Reid Prize in Mathematics is Hector Sussmann, Rutgers University. The prize lecture will take place on Sunday, July 1st at 8:45 AM. For additional details, see program.
