Google Scholar has released "Classic Papers: Articles That Have Stood The Test of Time", a collection of highly-cited papers in their area of research that have stood the test of time. Jorge Cortes and Sonia Martinez co-wrote this paper w/ Francesco Bullo, at UCSB, and it has made it to the top 3 in Automation & Control Theory
San Diego, Calif., May 1, 2017 -- A team of researchers at the University of California San Diego and Stanford University has received a $7.5 million, five-year grant to try to answer two fundamental questions: what is the memory capacity of a brain; and how does the brain process information with maximum energy efficiency.
Krstic received the Ragazzini Award of the American Automatic Control Council. The award is named after John Ragazzini, dean of engineering at Columbia and New York Universities in the 1940s and 1950s, who was the doctoral advisor of the giants of control engineering like Rudolph Kalman, Lotfi Zadeh (Berkeley), Eliahu Jury (Berkeley), and Gene Franklin (Stanford). Krstic received the award at the American Control Conference in Seattle.
Congratulations to Olivia Graeve who was elected a Fellow of The American Ceramic Society.
