Don't miss the exclusive interview with Pierre-Louis Lions, a Fields Medal-winning mathematician, conducted by Professor Cassani at Villa Toeplitz in Varese. This is a unique opportunity to hear from one of the most influential figures in modern mathematics. Watch the interview now!

The aim of the conference

The aims of the congress is to facilitate interdisciplinary discussions at the convergence of optimal control theory and mean-field models.

This forum brings together mathematicians from different communities to explore the challenges and opportunities presented by large-scale systems.

The objective is to advance understanding of analytic and probabilistic aspects of mean-field models and multi-agent systems, fostering collaboration and pushing the boundaries of mathematical theory and applications in real-world scenarios.
