The eleventh edition of the International Summer School on Geometry, Mechanics and Control will be held at ICMAT in Madrid, Spain, in June 26-30, 2017 (New location!).

The school is oriented to young researchers, Ph.D. and postdoctoral students in Mathematics, Physics and Engineering, in particular those interested in focusing their research on geometric control and its applications to mechanical and electrical systems, and optimal control. It is intended to present an up-to-date view of some fundamental issues in these topics and bring to the participants attention some open problems, in particular problems related to applications.  This year the courses will be delivered by:
