Michel Gevers - Biography#

Michel GEVERS was born in Antwerp, Belgium, in 1945. He obtained an Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Louvain, Belgium, in 1968, and a Ph.D. degree from Stanford University, California, in 1972, under the supervision ofTom Kailath. He is an IFAC Fellow, a Fellow of the IEEE, a Distinguished Member of the IEEE Control Systems Society. He holds a Honorary Degree (Doctor Honoris Causa) from the University of Brussels and Linkoping University, Sweden. He has been President of the European Union Control Association (EUCA) from 1997 to 1999, and Vice President of the IEEE Control Systems Society in 2000 and 2001.

Michel Gevers is Professor Emeritus at the Department of Mathematical Engineering of the University of Louvain, in Louvain la Neuve, Belgium. He has been for 20 years the coordinator of the Belgian Interuniversity Network DYSCO (Dynamical Systems, Control, and Optimization) funded by the Federal Ministry of Science. This is a network of excellence in systems, control and optimization, which counts about 55 academics and 200 PhD students and post-docs. He has spent long-term visits at the University of Newcastle, Australia, and the Technical University of Vienna, and was a Senior Research Fellow at the Australian National University from 1983 to 1986.

His present research interests are in system identification and its interconnection with robust control design, optimal experiment design for identification, and data-based control design. Besides, he also spends much time on research evaluation and management.

Michel Gevers has been Associate Editor of Automatica, of the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, of Mathematics of Control, Signals, and Systems (MCSS) and Associate Editor at Large of the European Iournal of Control. He has published more than 260 papers and conference papers, and two books: "Adaptive Optimal Control - The Thinking Man‘s GPC", by R.R. Bitmead, M. Gevers and V. Wertz (Prentice Hall, 1990), and "Parametrizations in Control, Estimation and Filtering Problems: Accuracy Aspects", by M. Gevers and G. Li (Springer-Verlag, 1993).
