Seminar Series

The seminar »KL-Regelungstechnik« (Kaiserslautern – Control Theory and Control Engineering) is organized by our department as well as several research groups of the TU Kaiserslautern:

  • Technomathematics (Dep. of Mathematics)
  • Mechatronics in Mechenical and Automotive Engineering (Dep. of Mechanical and Process Engineering)
  • Automation Control (Dep. of Electrical and Computer Engineering)
  • Electromobility (Dep. of Electrical and Computer Engineering)

The seminar usually takes place at the ITWM on the first Thursday of each month (except for holiday shifts and summer break). Aims are broadening of experiences and exchange of scientific views – also beyond the organizing groups.


Typical subjects of talks are:

  • ongoing or recently finished graduations and doctoral theses
  • current research and projects

The topics vary from mathematical methods to technical implementations. Usually, the talks present research results. However, some show open issues for brainstorming and inputs from the audience.



The talks as well as the subsequent scientific discussion are in English or German. Usually, the talk takes place from 15:45 to 17:15 in the conference room I0.01 (Hertz), Fraunhofer-Zentrum, Fraunhofer-Platz 1, 67663 Kaiserslautern.
