Heidelberg Seminar on Optimal Control

Event information


This seminars aims at bringing researchers in optimal control and numerical mathematics together for a week of recent research results, collaboration and – most importantly – ample time for in-depth discussions. Additionally, snowboarding as well as cross-country and alpine skiing can be practiced (or learned) on site.


The seminar has previously been organized by Roland Herzog’s numerical mathematics group at the TU Chemnitz and has since moved to his Scientific Computing and Optimization group at the University of Heidelberg. Feel free to visit last year’s edition’s website here.
