M19. Recent Advances in Control and Estimation of Distributed Parameter Systems

Minisymposium dedicated to the 80th anniversary of Professor Franz Kappel, Professor Emeritus, Universitat Graz

Since the 1970’s Franz Kappel has been a distinguished and world renowned contributor to the theory and computation for control and parameter estimation for distributed parameter systems. He has made such contributions while at the same time providing major intellectual and academic leadership at his home instutiution, the University of Graz, serving successively as Head of the Institute of Mathematics and Scientific Computing, Dean of the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Vice-Rector for Finances, and Member of the Senat. He has made major contributtions to education and research leadership in Asia, specifically by his efforts in Indonesia (U. Gadjah Mada) and the Philippines (U. Philippines, Diliman) as well as other Southeastern Asian institutions. During the past 50 years he has directed more than 30 PhD theses, published more that 150 research articles, written 3 books and edited 14 Proceedings of conferences held in Europe, the US and Asia. He has served as outside expert on a number of instutional evaluation committes in the US and Europe. Since 2010 he has provided continuing major leadership to the Renal Research Institute New York (RRINY) in their efforts on improving therapies for dialysis patients.

In this minisymposium we will recognize his accomplishments with presentations by a variety of scientists and colleagues on topics which are connected to and influenced by the pioneering work of Professor Kappel.
