Workshop’s ​Information

The 16th Young Researchers Workshop in Geometry, Mechanics, and Control is a yearly event to promote young researchers in the field of differential geometry and its relations to mechanics and control theory. The 16th edition will take place in Barcelona. This event offers researchers in the field, especially to the younger participants, a platform to share their latest results to an international audience and discuss current topics. The workshop will contain three mini-courses in key topics in the field, selected talks proposed by the participants and a poster session.

Location and dates:

  • Where: Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
  • When: December 1-3, 2021
