Who can attend?

The school is open to international PhD and advanced undergraduate students from engineering sciences or mathematics. A background in systems and control theory or related fields will be required.


A limited number of scholarships will be available. These scholarships will in general cover the full travel and lodging expenses. Because of the restricted number of such scholarships, we ask that students preferentially use funds available at their home institutions.
