Fifteenth International Symposium on
Mathematical Theory of Networks and Systems
University of Notre Dame, August 12-16, 2002

MTNS is a prime conference in the general area of mathematical systems theory. The symposium is interdisciplinary and attracts mathematicians, engineers and researchers working in any aspect of systems theory.
MTNS 2002 will be held on the campus of the University of Notre Dame from Monday August 12 through Friday August 16, 2002.
The symposium program will include plenary lectures, special topic invited lectures, mini-symposia, mini-courses, special topic sessions and contributed papers.
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.
