Control Systems Society awards

The 2004 IEEE Control Systems Society Awards ceremony was held in the Water's Edge Room of the Atlantis Hotel in Paradise Island, The Bahamas, on a pleasant winter's evening. President J. Douglas Birdwell welcomed everyone and introduced Panos Antsaklis, chair of the Standing Committee on Awards, who briefly described the IEEE and CSS awards and thanked the CSS awards subcommittee chairs for their hard work.

Panos introduced Richard Middleton, Vice-president of Member Activities, who presented the annual Outstanding Chapter Award. This award recognizes a chapter for demonstrating a high level of activity, innovation, or growth. The 2004 award was presented to the Queensland Section's joint Control Systems Society/Robotics and Automation Society Chapter in recognition of their high level of activity in technical and outreach activities. Technical activities included a workshop on intelligent robotics; a presentation on the economic benefits of process control; and a distinguished lecture on model predictive control, state estimation, and coordinated vehicles. The chapter also experience substantial growth since its foundation in 1999.

Dr. Peter Kootsookos accepted the award on behalf of Chapter Chair Professor Ljubo Vlacic.
