About the Workshop

This workshop is held in cooperation with the SIAM Student Chapter Trier, with speakers from all existing German SIAM Student Chapters (currently this number is limited to two). It will cover a wide variety of topics including nonlinear programming, parameter estimation in ODE/SDE models, optimal control, design of optimal experiments, and application examples at an introductory level.

After the workshop, there will be a get-together with wine tasting, and we will have the opportunity to get a peek into Germany’s oldest city.


We offer free transportation from Heidelberg University, Im Neuenheimer Feld to Trier University at Friday, September 7, 8.00am, and back to Heidelberg University at Saturday, September 8  (for our members from outside Heidelberg, we’ll find a solution, just ask!). Also, the accommodation in Trier is free of charge, sponsored by the Heidelberg Chapter of SIAM and HGS MathComp.

Confirmed speakers are:

  • Martin Felis, Heidelberg
  • Ulf Friedrich, Trier
  • Bastian Groß, Trier
  • Tony Huschto, Heidelberg
  • Duy-Van Nguyen, Trier
  • Andreas Schmidt, Heidelberg
  • Martin Siebenborn, Trier
  • Andreas Sommer, Heidelberg
  • Christoph Zimmer, Heidelberg
