GT-MAP Workshop on Dynamics and Control

The Workshop on Dynamics and Control is part of the Georgia Tech Mathematics and Applications Portal (GT-MAP) Seminars series, organized by Sung Ha Kang . Speakers come from different units of Georgia Tech.

The workshop will launch the thematic semesters on Dynamics in Fall 2017 and Control in Spring 2018 for GT-MAP activities.This is a two-day workshop, the first day focusing on the theme of Dynamics, and the second day focusing on the theme of Control. Light refreshments will be served througout the event.

The workshop will be held in Klaus Advanced Computing Building, Room 2447. More information is available at
