Winter School on Neural Network & Its Application at College of Engineering, Pune [Dec 2-6]: Register by Nov 25: Expired


The 4th winter school on “Neural Network and its Application in Optimization-based Control” will have extensive tutorials and practical hands-on experience, keeping in mind the participants who are not necessarily experts in control systems. It will also provide a timely update on the most recent developments in the area of machine learning-based optimization.

There will be a mutual exchange of knowledge between the participant and resource persons who are highly specialized in this area. It will help the participant to update their knowledge and widen their horizons in the field of optimization and optimal control.

The winter school focuses on upgrading the teaching, learning, analysis and research skills about the advances in optimization theory and the field of optimal control. This program will enrich the links between academia and industry and will enhance collaboration. It will also explore the optimization problem formulation and its applicability to Model Predictive Control.
