Stadius Center for Dynamical Systems, Signal Processing and Data Analytics

STADIUS is headed by Prof. Marc Moonen
Academic Staff: Prof. Jan Aerts , Prof. Alexander Bertrand , Prof. Jos De Brabanter , Prof. Lieven De Lathauwer , Prof. Bart De Moor , Prof. Luc Geurts , Prof. Marc Moonen , Prof. Yves Moreau , Prof. Panagiotis Patrinos , Prof. Johan Suykens , Prof. Sabine Van Huffel , Prof. Toon van Waterschoot 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.

Yves Moreau elected as ISCB Fellow

Yves Moreau

26 February 2018

The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) is a scholarly society for advancing understanding of living systems through computation and for communicating scientific advances worldwide.

The ISCB Fellows program was created to honor members who have distinguished themselves through outstanding contributions to the fields of computational biology and bioinformatics.

We are very happy to announce that Yves Moreau was elected as the ISCB Fellow in the class of 2018.

Yves Moreau, is recognized by ISCB as one of the top-most formative leaders in computational biology in Europe. Having a background in engineering, he has made important and a broad range of contributions to the analysis of microarray data, to disease gene prioritization and to the analysis of genomics variants in the context of rare genetic diseases.

The 2018 Fellows will be recognized during the ISMB 2018 conference.

Jan Aerts discusses big data with Robbert Dijkgraaf and King Filip during the celebration of the 5th anniversary of "De Jonge Academie".

20 February 2018

The Young Academy is an interuniversity and interdisciplinary meeting place for promising scientists and artists.

On the 6th of February 2018, during the celebration of its 5th anniversary, the Academy had the honor to receive His Majesty the King. King Filip entered into a dialogue "en petit comité" with the Academy covering science and art, diversity, and open and citizen science. In particular, King Filip and Jan Aerts discussed the concept and challenges of privacy and big data.

The festive public session was then opened with words of praise spoken by King Filip and a keynote by Robbert Dijkgraaf, Director of the Princeton Institute for Advanced Study. The chairman of the KVAB (Koninklijke Vlaamse Academie van België voor Wetenschappen en Kunsten), Joos Vandewalle, also reflected on what has been achieved in the last 5 years by the Young Academy.
