The 1st Midwest Workshop on Control and Game Theory

April 27-28, 2012 

April 28-29, 2012


Note that the dates have been changed to April 28-29 due to the Illinois Marathon event in town.

Auditorium (B02)

Coordinated Science Laboratory

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign


The workshop aims to bring together students, professors, and researchers from midwest region of the United States, who develop and apply game and control theory to analyze, design, and assess complex systems. We hope to provide an annual forum to highlight synergies between various related research areas, encourage discussions and facilitate collaborations on new game and control-theoretic methodologies. The workshop comprises of invited and accepted presentations.
