This workshop is intended as a forum for students and postdocs working in control systems in the Southern California area to present their research in an informal setting. If you would like to attend, please contact on of the organizers:

  • Caltech: Richard Murray
  • UCI: Ken Mease
  • UCLA: Paulo Tabuada
  • UCSB: Francesco Bullo
  • UCSD: Jorge Cortes
  • USC: Petros Ioannou
  • UCR: Jie Chen

Location

  • The workshop will be held at the Beckman Institute Auditorium on the Caltech campus map. Registration is free.
  • Directions to Caltech. You can use Google Maps
  • The closest place to park is the north Wilson parking structure (building 123 on the campus map). You can pick up a ticket from the kiosk ($6 for the day) and park in any unnamed space. The Beckman Institute is building 74 on the campus map (just across the street from the parking lot).
