Online Seminars: Reaching Broader Control Systems Community Around the Globe

As a part of the education and outreach activities at the LACIS, we have been leading unique online seminar series to reach broader control systems community around the globe. Specifically, these series disseminate new research results, education perspectives, and applications of dynamical systems, controls, decision-making, and information theory through the Control Systems Forum, which was created by Dr. Yucelen and sponsored by the IEEE Control Systems Society. This nonprofit initiative enables individuals from academia, government, and industry to follow the state of the art approaches being developed by experts. Until now, researchers from several universities and organizations gave online seminars on various exciting topics to an average of 45 people each. The audience of these seminars, which is composed of undergraduate/graduate students and researchers, have a chance to ask "live" questions and participate in conversations with the speakers (see ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Division and IEEE Control Systems Magazine news). Watch the following seminars now!
