The keynotes presented included 'Precision Mapping and Vehicle State Estimation for Autonomous Highway Vehicles' by Jay A. Farrell, University of California, and 'Convex Optimization: Theory and Algorithms' by Dimitri Bertsekas, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, United States. Some lectures included 'Electrified and Connected Vehicles: A New Era for Controls' by Jing Sun, University of Michigan, United States' and 'An Overview of High-Order Multi-Agent Coordination and Flocking Control of Multiple Non-Holonomic Robots with Connectivity Maintenance' by Jie Chen, Beijing Institute of Technology, China. During the conference, all Award Committee members attended the oral presentations of the five finalist papers.
