Workshop "Roberto Tempo" on Uncertain Dynamical Systems
The Workshop on Uncertain Dynamical Systems (WUDS) is an international event organized by the Technical Committee on Robust Control of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC).
The workshop traditionally takes place the week before the IFAC World Congress, a flagship event of the IFAC witnessing the participation of about 3000 researchers working in the field of Automatic Control and coming from all over the world. The 2017 IFAC World Congress will take place in Toulouse on July 9-14, 2017, and the 2017 WUDS is then organized in the preceding week on July 5-7, 2017 at Banyuls-sur-mer, a small city located in the south of France.
The goal of the WUDS workshop is to gather a selected number of internationally renowned researchers with a robust control background in an event characterized by a friendly atmosphere, where they can share their most recent cutting-edge research results on advanced and applied control topics.
Roberto Tempo has been an outstanding scientist in the area of robust control and has been promoting and supporting the WUDS with his positive and encouraging attitude towards spreading and sharing scientific results. Among many other things, Roberto Tempo in 2015 was appointed Editor in Chief of "Automatica", the flagship journal of the IFAC. In January 2017 the whole control community witnessed with astonishment the tragic and sudden passing away of Roberto Tempo. Overcome by grief for this abrupt loss, we decided to dedicate the WUDS to the honor of Roberto Tempo.
