Dynamic Control and Optimization

on occasion of 65th birthday of
Andrey V. Sarychev

February 3 to 5, 2021

The Dynamic Control and Optimization International Conference 2021 (DCO 2021) will take place at University of Aveiro, Campus of Santiago, from 3 to 5 February, 2021 (Wednesday-Friday). The conference is dedicated to the 65th birthday of Andrey V. Sarychev, Professor in University of Aveiro until 2002.

The conference is organized by the Department of Mathematics of the University of Aveiro, the Center for Research & Development in Mathematics and Applications (CIDMA, University of Aveiro) and the Center for Applied Mathematics and Economics (CEMAPRE, University of Lisbon).

Aims and Scope

The conference include topics in research in the areas of (but not limited to):

  • nonlinear dynamical control systems,

  • control of evolution PDE,

  • optimal control,

  • sub-Riemannian geometry,

  • ordinary differential equations,

  • calculus of variations,

  • differential equations,

  • propagation of acoustic waves in elastic media.

The conference will consist of invited plenary talks (40 minutes + 5 minutes of q&a) and contributed paper presentations (20 minutes + 5 minutes of q&a).

Selected full papers of this conference will be published in an international journal.


Due to the COVID-19 situation and the possible lockdown, the conference is planned to be held in two simultaneous ways:

  • attended at the University of Aveiro, Aveiro, Portugal;

  • virtually using Zoom

To ensure that all conference attendees have access to all sessions, it is planned to transmit the sessions online or provide access to their recordings.

Regardless of how we handle the conference, we want to assure everyone that there will be a forum for contributors to share their work and participants to learn and network.
