近日，来自西班牙瓦伦西亚理工学院的Pedro Albertos教授与来自意大利罗马大学的AlbertoIsidori教授在控制系智能系统与控制研究所进行学术交流访问，期间分别开设了《MIMO ControlSystems: Modeling, Analysis and Design》和《Topic in Robust and Nonlinear Control》的短期课程，受到控制系师生欢迎。
Prof. Pedro Albertos和Prof. AlbertoIsidori，均是IFAC（the International Federation of Automatic Control) 前主席，IFAC Fellow，是控制领域的顶级专家，对控制理论与应用均有深刻的理解。为了给广大师生提供更多与两位大师面对面交流的机会，我们决定组织一场讨论会，邀请两位大师分享科研、生活趣事，共话控制明天！具体活动信息如下：
活动主题：Control Renaissance － 与两位大师共话控制明天
Pedro Albertos, past president of IFAC (the International Federation of Automatic Control) in 1999-2002, IFAC Fellow, IFAC Advisor and Senior Member of IEEE, is a world recognized expert in real-time control, leading several projects in the field. Full Professor since 1975, he is currently at Systems Engineering and Control Dept. UPV, Spain. He is Doctor Honoris-Causa from Oulu University (Finland) and Bucharest Polytechnic (Rumania). Invited Professor in more than 20 Universities, he delivered seminars in more than 30 universities and research centers.
