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

Studying at Cambridge



Proposals for mini-courses: 



Deadline for submission of proposals : January 12, 2020.


A mini-course consists of 1 or possibly 2 blocks. Each block lasts for 100 or 125 minutes.


Each block consists of 2-4 talks in the case of 100 minutes and 3-5 talks in the case of a 125-minute mini course, prepared and presented in a unified and coherent manner by a team of at most 4 people.


The length of each talk is 50 or 25 minutes. A mini-course proposal would require a 2-4 page long extended abstract providing the structure of the whole mini-course, with no requirement of abstracts for the individual talks. The proposals should be submitted using the Papercept system by the minicourse organizer(s).

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
