LCCC - Lund Center for Control of Complex Engineering Systems
Our society is dependent on flexible infrastructurefor industrial production, energy supply and communication systems. This requires research and innovations on control of complex systems. Many challenges are common to a wide range of application areas and need to be adressed using a combination of competences from control, communications and computer science.
LCCC is developing theory, methods and tools for control of large-scale engineering systems. Positions for PhD students and postdocs in prioritized areas are combined with short term guest programs of a wider scope. This contributes to creating a highly creative and stimulating environment, that attracts strong applicants at all levels.
Positions for PhD students and postdocs are announced here.
The LCCC Linnaeus center is announcing a Focus Period on Large-Scale and Distributed Optimization from May 29 to June 30, 2017 with a workshop in the middle. Confirmed invited speakers include Francis Bach (France), Amir Beck (Israel), Stephen Boyd (USA), Anders Hansson (Sweden), Mikael Johansson (Sweden), Laurent Lessard (USA), Angelia Nedich (USA), Asu Ozdaglar (USA), Pablo Parrilo (USA), Panagiotis Patrinos (Belgium), Lin Xiao (USA), Russel Luke (Germany) and Holger Rauhut (Germany).
The aim of the focus period is to bring together leading researchers from different communities to create exciting cross-fertilization and new ideas. At any particular time, there will be room for up to 10 visiting scholars. A typical visit will be 3 weeks, either beginning or ending with the workshop week. Invitation as visiting scholar includes free accommodation and workshop registration. Interested visitors are encouraged to contact Pontus Giselsson or Anders Rantzer.
