Nicolas Martin visited Imura Laboratory at Tokyo University of Technology from June 20th to August 20th 2018

Nicolas Martin visits Imura Laboratory at Tokyo University of Technology from June 20th to August 20th in the frame of the JSPS summer program . Within this collaboration, we aim to integrate controllability and/or observability notions in the network reduction problem in which Nicolas is concerned. Before the visit, he presented his poster to the other students of the program.

Maria-Laura Delle Monache and Stephane Mollier were at the TRB 2018 in Washington

Stephane Mollier and Maria-Laura Delle Monache were in January at the Transportation Research Board (TRB) 97th Annual meeting in Washington.
The congress hold from 7/01/2018 to 13/01/2018. This event covers all fields of research related to the domain of Transport. The presentations are divided in Lecture sessions, Workshops and Poster Presentations.

Nicolas Martin and Paolo Frasca at the Complex Networks and their applications conference

From Novembre 29 to December 1, Nicolas Martin and Paolo Frasca attended the 6th Conference on Complex Networks and their Applications. They presented a poster on their work on graph reduction during a well-attended interactive session. The conference program focused on network science with both theoretical and experimental works, with applications ranging from urban traffic to brain and to social networks.

Stephane Mollier has attended a Course Control of PDE by Enrique Zuazua at Paris

Stephane Mollier has attended the course of ”Introduction to the control of Partial Differential Equations” given by the Professor Enrique Zuazua. The course happened from 10/04/2017 to 14/04/2017 and was organized by the European Embedded Control Institute and took place in Paris. The aim of the course was to give another view of what is control of PDE for students who do not have neccessary background in control.

Giacomo Casadei attended the “Journée commune GT SYNC et Observation”

Giacomo Casadei attended the “Journée commune GT SYNC et Observation”, Thursday 8th of June, in Paris.
The seminar was organised jointly by GDR MACS groups SynC and Observation, on the base of invited speaker, dealing with problem of observation and synchronisation of nonlinear systems. Giacomo presented his work on synchronisation of heterogeneous networks: in particular the talk dealt with the case of uncertain leader and the use of nonlinear regression tools.

4 members of the Scale-FreeBack team attended the 2017 INdAM Workshop

Between the 6th and the 10th March 2017, Maria Laura Delle Monache, Giacomo Casadei, Nicolas Martin and Stéphane Mollier attended the 2017 INdAM Workshop on “Transport Modeling and Management: Vehicles and Crowds” in Rome, Italy. The first two days were devoted to lessons for PhD student on the subject of conservation laws. The three following days were organised in the form of a workshop, with invited and regular speakers. The aim of this conference is to gather researchers from different fields (mathematics, traffic engineering and physics) interested in transport modelling and control. The speakers presented different aspects of the subject from model analysis, numerical simulation, comparison with real experiment to control and planning of traffic infrastructure.
