24th International Symposium on Mathematical Theory of Networks and Systems (MTNS 2020): 24-28 August 2020, Cambridge, UK

Studying at Cambridge


Invited Sessions

Deadline for submission of proposals : January 12, 2020.

Each invited session consists of 5-6 papers/extended abstracts, dealing with several issues of a unified theme. Each talk lasts for 20 minutes. The proposals should contain a 2-4 page long summary statement in pdf format describing the relevance and importance of the session, including a brief summary of the invited papers. Each paper in a proposed invited session will be first individually reviewed, and then the invited session will be evaluated as a whole. The International Programme Committee reserves the right to accommodate the accepted papers from rejected invited sessions into the regular programme.

 The invited session proposals should be submitted using the Papercept system by the session organizer(s). After the submission of the proposal, the invited session will be assigned a code that the session organizers will receive and have to communicate to the session participants.

 The session participants can then submit their papers as invited papers indicating the session code and following the submission procedure in Papercept.


MTNS is a major symposium in the general area of mathematical systems theory, networks and control. The symposium is interdisciplinary and attracts mathematicians, engineers and researchers working in all aspects of systems theory and its applications. The symposium is held every two years. Mathematical methods which play a role in the areas mentioned above stem from a broad range of fields of pure and applied mathematics, including ordinary and partial differential equations, real and complex analysis, numerical analysis, probability theory and stochastic analysis, operator theory, linear and commutative algebra as well as algebraic and differential geometry. Application areas range from biology, communications and mathematical finance to problems in electrical, mechanical, aerospace and chemical engineering, and robotics.

MTNS is co-sponsored by IFAC
