SMC Colloquia Roberto Tempo on Automatica

The Colloquia Roberto Tempo in Automatica are dedicated to the memory of our friend and colleague Roberto, who passed away suddenly in 2017 during a ski mountaineering trip in the Alps. Roberto always believed in importance of sharing and disseminating results in his community.

Roberto was an extraordinary communicator. His talks were always clear and highly inspiring. As an author of scientific contributions, he spent an incredible amount of time making sure that his papers were accurate and easily accesible.

The colloquia are general seminars held by renowned scientists. They range over all aspects of systems and control, and on interdisciplinary subjects where control plays a fundamental role. They aim to contribute at the cultural atmosphere of our Institute, so offering young people the opportunity to be exposed to the teaching of internationally known scholars working in different research areas.

The colloquia are organized by the Systems Modeling and Control (SMC) group of IEIIT CNR. To allow a broader audience to attend the seminar, they are streamed online. Starting this year, the colloquia are co-sponsored by the Italian Chapters of the IEEE Control Systems Society, the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, the IEEE Power & Energy Society, and by the IEEE PoliTo Student Branch.

The inaugural colloquium was be held on June 8 by Prof. B. Ross Barmish. The second colloquium will be held on April 12 by Prof. Francesco Bullo. A light buffet (aperitivo) will be offered after the Colloquium. Please register to the event on eventbrite
