Plenary Speakers

The plenary speakers represent the vital and diverse interplay of theory and application that characterize the best control research. All have in common the central and enabling role that control plays in their work, but the applications themselves range from tiny robots pushing the limits of autonomy, to exploration of the solar system, to the health of our nation’s critical transportation infrastructure, and to the very frontiers of the human mind.
