Based on the International Federation for Information Processing TC7/WG-7.2 Conference, held in Laredo, Spain, this work covers theoretical advances as well as results on control problems and applications for partial differential equations. It examines the controllability and stabilization of distributed sytems, optimality conditions, shape optimization and numerical methods.
