7th Small Workshop on Interval Methods

Time and place: 11-12 June, 2014, to be held at the University Main Building, Uppsala, Sweden


About SWIM

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

The SWIM 2014 workshop is intended to build on the success of previous editions, held in Montpellier in 2008Lausanne in 2009Nantes in 2010Bourges in 2011,Oldenburg in 2012, and Brest in 2013, which was initiated by the French MEA working group on Set Computation and Interval Techniques of the French research group on Automatic Control GDR MACS. The MEA group aims at promoting interval analysis, constraint propagation and other set methods to apply them in estimation, robotics, control, planning, design, verification, computer aided proof, and other engineering, computer science and applied mathematics areas.

During previous editions of SWIM, talks were given by speakers coming from several countries among which are Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland. The participants discuss their most recent ideas and developments as well as thoughts about the most promising new directions.
