The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners working on interval methods and their applications, providing a forum to review and discuss the state-of-the-art in this area and fostering cross-fertilization between different approaches.

The SWIM'09 workshop is intended to build on the success of the first edition, held in Montpellier, which was initiated by the french working group MEA ("Méthodes ensemblistes pour l'automatique" or "Set Membership methods for automatic control" : www.lirmm.fr/ensemble).

Twenty one speakers from several countries (Poland, Brazil, Bulgaria, Spain, Canada, Switzerland, Pakistan and France) attended SWIM'08, where they discussed their most recent ideas and developments and thought together about the most promising new directions.

Call for talks

If you want to present a talk, please send an one page abstract via email to one of the organizers, no later than May 1st, 2009.

If you simply plan to attend the workshop, please send an email to one of the organizers.
