Workshop on incremental methods in control

Welcome to home page of the workshop on incremental methods in control which will be held the 6th and 7th of july 2017 in Lyon. The aim of the workshop is to gather leading researchers working from different perspective including:

  • Incremental Stability approaches
  • Finsler Lyapunov functions approaches
  • Riemaniann approach in control
  • Contraction based control design

The workshop is organized by the control@Lyon community. More precisely the organizing committee is composed of Gerard Scorletti (Ampere, ECL), Paolo Massioni (Ampere, INSA Lyon), and Vincent Andrieu (LAGEP, CNRS).
