Konstantinos Gatsis Receives Best Student Paper Award
Konstantinos Gatsis, doctoral student in Electrical and Systems Engineering (ESE), is the recipient of the Best Student Paper Award at the 2013 American Control Conference held in Washington, DC. His paper, Optimal Power Management in Wireless Control Systems, considers a closed-loop control system implemented over a wireless channel and provides the theoretical framework to explore the trade-off between system performance and power consumption of the wireless sensors. Co-authors on the paper are Alejandro Ribeiro, Assistant Professor in ESE, and George Pappas, Joseph Moore Professor and Chair of ESE.
The 2013 American Control Conference (ACC) was held June 17 to 19. The ACC is the annual conference of the American Automatic Control Council (AACC), the U.S. national member organization of the International Federation for Automatic Control (IFAC). National and international society cosponsors of ACC include the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the International Society of Automation (ISA), the Society for Modeling & Simulation International (SCS), and the Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
The ACC is internationally recognized as a premier scientific and engineering conference dedicated to the advancement of control theory and practice. The ACC brings together an international community of researchers and practitioners to discuss the latest findings in control research and practice.
