Celebrating a Leader in Control Systems
Friends and former students of Prof. Demos Teneketzis celebrated his 65th birthday with a Workshop on Information, Decisions, and Networks, held July 28-29, 2016.
In all, more than 60 friends and colleagues attended, including 20 of Demos’ former and current students. Speakers came from around the world and represented all corners of industry and academia, including Texas A&M University, the University of California, Berkeley, Nokia, Hewlett Packard, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, and Delft University of Technology.
The title of the workshop reflects the breadth of Demos’ research interests. He has made fundamental contributions to information structures in decentralized stochastic control, decentralized sequential detection, multi-armed bandits, scheduling resource allocation and routing in networks, diagnosability in discrete event systems, real-time communication and information theory, mechanism design, energy markets, and cyber-physical security.
In addition, Demos is an exemplary teacher who has educated numerous students on stochastics through his popular courses on stochastic processes and stochastic control. Demos has graduated 21 Ph.D. students, who have gone on to pursue successful careers in academia and industry. He is currently supervising four Ph.D. students.
