In Memoriam

Tribute to Jan C. Willems

Monday July 7, 2014, 15.30 - 20.00, Aula of the Academy building, University of Groningen
On August 31, 2013, Jan C. Willems passed away.
In order to commemorate his scientific legacy and friendship, and to honor his contributions to the Systems & Control scientific community, a memorial meeting will be organized in the Aula of the University of Groningen; the place where he acted as promotor for many of his PhD students, and where he held his inaugural speech and farewell lecture for the University of Groningen.

Stadius Center for Dynamical Systems, Signal Processing and Data Analytics

STADIUS is headed by Prof. Marc Moonen, Prof. Jan Aerts, Prof. Jos De Brabanter, Prof. Lieven De Lathauwer, Prof. Bart De Moor, Prof. Moritz Diehl, Prof. Jan Engelen, Prof. Yves Moreau, Prof. Johan Suykens, Prof. Sabine Van Huffel, Prof. Toon van Waterschoot, Prof. Joos Vandewalle and Prof. Bart Vanrumste.

STADIUS's major research objective is to contribute to the development of improved digital (control and signal processing) systems, that incorporate advanced mathematical modeling techniques as a crucial new ingredient.

To achieve this goal, a variety of research activities are set up, ranging from fundamental/theoretical work (signal theory, linear and nonlinear systems - including complex systems and neural networks - theory, circuit theory and control theory), to applications driven algorithm design and implementation.

STADIUS draws concepts from mathematical fields such as linear and multi-linear algebra, statistics, discrete mathematics, differential geometry, optimization, etc. Its strategic basic research is focused on generic translations of basic concepts into algorithmic implementations, focusing on numerical linear algebra issues as well as software and hardware implementation issues. Our ultimate goal is to prove that such mathematical modeling based algorithms provide significant performance improvement.

To this aim, three specific application fields are targetted, namely digital communications, biomedicine and modeling and control of industrial processes and mechatronic products.


The iMinds Department Medical Information Technologies positions itself between data and decision making by developing ICT-based Health Decision Support Systems to enable better health care. Focus is on three main areas: clinical, patient and policy decision support.

Contribution of last week: Prof. Bart De Moor enige Belg in 'Thomson Reuters' lijst meest geciteerde wetenschappers


Professor Dr Bart De Moor (iMinds - KU Leuven) is door Thomson Reuters opgenomen in de lijst van (computer)wetenschappers wiens werk het meest door collega-onderzoekers wordt geciteerd. Thomson Reuters compileerde de lijst op basis van wetenschappelijke papers die binnen hun specifieke vakgebied tot de top-1% geciteerde papers behoren. Voor de richting computerwetenschappen gaat het om een selecte groep van 117 onderzoekers wereldwijd, waarvan slechts 27 Europeanen – en dus één Belg.
