Dear all,

As I got this question a few times:

The page limit is strictly 4 pages (two-column, using the 11-point Times Roman font, single spaced) including figures, tables, title, authors etc. The only exception are the referencesbibliography which can continuestart on a fifth page. Anything beyond that will be not be read/graded.

Best regards,

Dear all,

As far as I know some of you are still looking for group members (either literature or practical assignment). Let's try something slightly different… I set up a Google Sheet that everybody should be able to edit here. Please post your contact information and what you are looking for. There are two tabs, one for the literature assignment, one for the practical assignment. Once you have formed a group, please inform me (for the lit assignment) or Thijs (for the practical assignment) and delete yourself again in the spreadsheet.

Regards, Jens

Dear students,

The course is going to start in a few days. In preparation for the first lecture please watch the control refresher (especially students not in a systems and control master) which can be found on the Materials page.

I am looking forward to seeing you all on Monday.
