Sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Control and Systems Theory

This conference is being held jointly with the 2009 SIAM Annual Meeting.


Please be advised that in order to avoid an unacceptable meeting environment due to unscheduled construction, the conference is being relocated from the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel to the Colorado Convention Center. Conference sessions and all associated events will take place at the Colorado Convention Center (http://www.denverconvention.com/).

If you reserved a sleeping room at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, your sleeping room reservation will not be affected by the change in conference location.

The Colorado Convention Center is located approximately five (5) blocks from the Sheraton Downtown Hotel. Shuttle transportation will be provided for conference participants between the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel and the Colorado Convention Center on a continuous basis. Shuttle information will be provided upon check-in at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel.

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 in 1989 in San Francisco.
