Ekaterina V. Shevkoplyas, St. Petersburg State University - November 10 to 30, 2011
Ekaterina V. Shevkoplyas is Associate Professor at the Faculty of Applied Mathematics and Control Processes of St. Petersburg State University. In 2004 she defended a Ph.D. thesis entitled "Cooperative Differential Games with Random Duration". Now she is dealing with environmental applications in the field of differential games.
She is invited by Georges Zaccour. Don't miss her seminar on Friday, November 18, 2011.
Fabien Prieur, LAMETA-INRA, Université Montpellier I, France - November 15 to December 1st, 2011
Fabien Prieur holds a junior Chair in Environmental Economics at INRA, the French Institute for Research in Agriculture, and University Montpellier I, Montpellier, France. In 2006, he defended a ph.D thesis entitled ?Growth and the Environment in Overlapping Generations Models: Dynamic Analysis and Evaluation of Public Policies. His research is mainly dedicated to the analysis of the impact of irreversible pollution on the relationship between growth and the environment, on the optimal control of pollution under uncertainty and, on the management of polluting non-renewable ressources. He is also interested in the design of environmental policies. To this end, he develops growth, optimal control and differential game models.
He is invited by Georges Zaccour. Don't miss his seminar on Wednesday, November 23, 2011.
Antonio Capone, Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione, Politecnico di Milano - November 21 to 25 2011
Antonio Capone is Full Professor at the Information and Communication Technology Department (Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione) of the Technical University of Milan (Politecnico di Milano), where he is the director of the Advanced Network Technologies Laboratory (ANTLab). Dr. Capone is co-founder and CTO of MobiMESH, a spin-off company of Politecnico di Milano. His expertise is on networking and his main research activities include protocol design (MAC and routing) and performance evaluation of wireless access and multi-hop networks, traffic management and quality of service issues in IP networks, and network planning and optimization.
