We are happy to announce our four-day summer school on Direct Methods for Optimal Control of Nonsmooth Systems for industrial and academic researchers, in particular PhD and master students in mathematics, engineering, physics, and computer science.
The registration is closed. However, we have created a waiting list and you are still encouraged to register. If free places become available, we will notify you via e-mail.
Apply for a scholarship:
We offer five “free-tuition” scholarships that cover the registration fee for PhD and master's students who are not affiliated with the University of Freiburg.
To apply for the scholarship, fill out the form and send one or two recommendation letters (e.g. from your supervisor) recommending you and your talents and supporting your attendance at the summer school to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application deadline for the scholarship is July 15, 2023. We will notify you about the result of the application before July 25, 2023.
This four-day intensive course aims to provide both theoretical background and hands-on practical knowledge in formulating and numerical methods to solve optimal control problems with nonsmooth differential equation models with switches and state jumps. Nonsmooth dynamical systems arise in robotics, contact-implicit optimization, chemical engineering, biology, mechatronics, aerospace, or as soon as some if-else statements, switches, and state jump are encoded in the systems’ dynamics.
