The session will serve to promote and disseminate recent developments in the mathematical control theory for partial differential equations (PDEs). The discussion will address the following questions in the context of distributed-parameter systems modeled by evolution PDEs: controllability/observability results, inverse problems, stability and blow-up, optimization and sensitivity analysis, as well as pertinent qualitative properties of such systems, e.g., Hadamard well-posedness, regularity of solutions, or structure of global attractors.
