**March 28-April 1, 2022** at Department of Mathematics, J. J. Strossmayer University of Osijek

The goal of this workshop is to provide a coherent set of lectures that will adequately clarify the mathematical aspects of the (optimal) control of dynamical systems, with special emphasis on model reduction methods for large-scale systems and optimization. The special attention will be given to optimal damping problems since that this workshop is organized within DAAD project Accelerated solution of optimal damping problems (for period 2021-2022). This project is bilateral cooperation with Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems, Magdeburg, Germany.

Participation in this workshop is by invitation only and there is no registration fee.
