Prof. GIUSEPPE CONTE, Universita Politecnica delle Marche, Italy
Biography: Giuseppe Conte received the Laurea in Mathematica cum Laude from the University of Genova, Italy, in 1974. After being Lecturer and Associated Professor at the University of Genova, from 1990 he is Professor of System Theory at the Università Politecnica delle Marche, Italy. He was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship in 1980 and 1987 and a NATO Senior Fellowship in 1987. He has been Visiting Professor at the Ohio State University of Columbus, Ohio, 1987, and at the Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France, 1988. He has been Chairman of the IFAC TC on Linear Control Systems (2011-2017) and Chairman of the Italian Chapter of the IEEE Control Systems Society (1998-2015). He is Senior Member of the IEEE Control System Society and Member of the Accademia Marchigiana di Scienze Lettere ed Arti. He has been General Chairman/IPC Chairman of several international conferences and Associate Editor of the SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization; of the Proceedings of the IFAC World Conference and of the IMA Journal of Mathematical Control and Information. He has been Principal Investigator in national, European and other international research projects. His research interests are in algebraic and geometric system and control theory and in robotics and he published more than 300 papers in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings and three books on those topics.

Prof. Jan Awrejcewicz, The Lodz University of Technology, Poland
Biography: JA has been graduated from the Lodz University of Technology (LUT) in 1977 (Mechanics) and from the University of Lodz in 1978 (Philosophy). He obtained PhD (Habilitation) in 1981 (1990), and he became a Full Professor in 1997. Now he is a chair person of Department of Automation, Biomechanics and Mechatronics, head of a 4‐years Doctoral School on Mechanics, and a head of the Mechatronics Study at LUT. His research includes: Nonlinear mechanics (analytical, numerical and experimental methods): continuous systems (plates, shells, beams, and structures); thermo‐elasticity; mathematical methods in mechanics; asymptotic methods; dynamics of lumped mechanical systems; bifurcation and chaos; numerical methods; non‐smooth and discontinuous systems. Mechatronics and Control (mechanical and machatronical processes control; vibrations control; optimization). Biomechanics (modeling and analysis of human organs; stability of a human gait and motion; experimental and numerical methods). JA authored and/or co‐authored: monographs‐44 (25 in Polish; 1 in Russian); textbooks‐2; editor/conference proceedings‐13; journal papers‐300; conference papers-337; chapters in books‐43, post-conference papers in books-23.
