2015 ShanghaiTech Workshop
on Model Predictive Control

Friday, December 11, 2015.

This workshop focuses on recent advances, various aspects, and new ideas
on model predictive control. The aim is to bring together young researchers
in this emerging research field in order to inspire discussions, induce new
research ideas, and initiate collaboration networks. This is a registration-free
event, open to faculty and students.

Program

The workshop takes place on Friday, December 11. In the morning,
and at 2pm our invited speakers will give overview talks about their
research, which are open to a broad audience. The afternoon is
reserved for a smaller group: our speakers will give short but
technical or more specialized talks for experts in MPC.
