GT MAP Workshop on Dynamics and Control

The workshop will launch the thematic semesters on Dynamics (Fall 2017) and Control (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. There will be light refreshments throughout the event.

The workshop will be held in the Klaus building Room 2447.
