Sixteen papers from the July 2005 conference study both controlled partial differential equation (PDE) systems and the asymptotic long- time behavior of PDE-mixed problems. The opening paper presents results on the asymptotic stabilization of systems of conservation laws by controls acting at a single boundary point. An equally long paper develops the dynamics of a semilinear wave equation with nonlinear interior/boundary dissipation. Other topics include variational principles for finite dimensional initial value problems, optimality conditions for solutions to hyperbolic balance laws, microscale sensitivity in moving boundary problems for the thin-film equation.
