THIRD ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear Colleagues,
This is the third announcement of the 18th International Symposium on the Mathematical Theory of Networks and Systems (MTNS 2008), Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Virginia, Monday July 28 to Friday August 1, 2008 (arrival date Sunday July 27), held in cooperation with the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).

The web site http://www.cpe.vt.edu/mtns08/ is now open for submission of extended abstracts and Special Session/Minicourse proposals.

To submit a Special Session or Minicourse (Session for short) proposal:

1. Prepare a short abstract (100 words or less) in plain text to be pasted in the Submission Text box on the VT abstract submission site.

2. Prepare an extended abstract describing the Session theme together with a short abstract from each Session participant. Collate all these into one PDF file to be uploaded at the VT abstract submission site. In particular, Session participants are requested to send their abstracts directly to the Session organizer.

To submit a contribution for a Regular Session:

1. Prepare a short abstract (of 100 words or less) in plain text to be pasted in the Submission Text box on the VT abstract submission site.

2. Prepare an extended abstract (PDF file) to be uploaded on the VT abstract submission site.

The deadline for submission of a Session proposal or Regular Session contribution is February 15. Session proposals and extended abstracts for regular sessions will then be sent out for review and notification of the review decision by March 31 (March 15 by special request). Authors of accepted papers will then be invited to submit a Full Paper for inclusion on the CD-ROM to be handed out at the meeting.

For more detailed instructions and updated information, visit the MTNS web site listed above. In particular, the Submission Page there gives a link to the VT abstract submission page.

We look forward to your contribution toward the success of the MTNS 2008.

FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear Colleagues,

This is the first announcement of the 18th International Symposium on the Mathematical Theory of Networks and Systems (MTNS 2008), Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Virginia, Monday July 28 to Friday August 1, 2008 (arrival date Sunday July 28).

MTNS is one of the main conferences in the general area of mathematical systems and control theory. The symposium is interdisciplinary and is aimed at mathematicians, engineers and researchers interested in any aspect of systems theory. MTNS is usually organized every two years and traditionally covers areas involving a wide range of research directions in mathematical systems, networks and control theory.

The list of plenary speakers: Alessandro Astolfi, Martin Golubitsky, Naomi Leonard, Danny Sorensen and John Tyson. Confirmed semiplenary speakers include: Mark Embree, Lars Gruene, Birgit Jacob, Margreta Kuijper, Daniel Liberzon, Iven Mareels, Gyorgy Michaletzky, Bernd Noack, Yoshito Ohta, Alban Quadrat, Toshiharu Sugie, Harry Trentelman and Victor Vinnikov.

We invite proposals for minicourses, special sessions and contributed papers. In addition to the book of abstracts, there will be a CD-ROM distributed at the conference containing longer conference papers. The deadline for submission of extended abstract/conference paper is February 15 with notification of Acceptance/Rejection by March 31 and deadline for final version of the CD-ROM paper of May 15th, 2008. A second announcement will give details on the date at which the submission site will be opened. Informal suggestions for minicourses and special sessions are encouraged at any time; these can be sent to the conference e-mail address mtns2008@math.vt.edu. For additional and continuing information, consult our conference web site at http://www.cpe.vt.edu/mtns08/.

Please feel free to pass this information to persons who might be interested in attending MTNS 2008.

If you do not wish to receive further information about MTNS 2008, please let us know by sending a message to mtns2008@math.vt.edu.
