FOR EXCELLENCE IN TRANSLATIONAL CONTROL RESEARCH
The Industry Award for Excellence in Translational Control Research is given to recognize an individual or a team of faculty researchers whose research activity arising from Industry-University Collaboration(s) has produced substantive results with demonstrated impact. It will be made to the competitor(s) who best demonstrates research with a high-degree of excellence and effective industry-university collaboration with proven record of success in translating systems and control theory and to practical benefits for industrial or commercial systems.
Award winner will be announced at the MSC 2009. The winner will receive $1,750.00 as cash prize, a certificate laminated on a plaque and travel expenses to the MSC 2010, round trip restricted (minimal) coach air fare, conference registration, and three hotel nights at conference rate.
Award is funded by the IEEE Control Systems Society.
All continuing faculty members are eligible for this award. The winner must agree to give a 1 hour presentation of the resulting translational systems and control research that led to practical benefits for industrial or commercial systems.
BASIS FOR JUDGING Outstanding contribution(s) and demonstrated impact of the resulting control system technology from the nominated Industry-University Collaboration
