Editorial: Special issue on cyber-physical systems and intelligent control in honor of the 65th birthday of Professor Bijoy K. Ghosh
It is our great pleasure to organize this special issue in Control Theory and Technology in honor of the 65th birthday of Professor Bijoy K. Ghosh, who has made many truly outstanding contributions to the field of systems and control through the years, which include robust and nonlinear control, robotics and machine vision in his earlier research period, and his recent focus on biology and biomedical modeling, learning control and multi-agent systems to name a few. Professor Ghosh obtained his Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering at Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, India, in 1977, and at Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India, in 1979, respectively. In 1983, he obtained his Ph.D. in Engineering at Harvard University. Then, he worked at Washington University in Saint Louis for 23 years. In 2007, he became a Regent Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas. In 2018, he joined the School of Automation Engineering, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu, China. In the early research period, he followed Professors Roger W. Brockett and Y. C. Ho and interacted with other control theorists, such as Prof. H. Kimura, Profs. M. Hazewinkel and J. C. Willems, Profs. K. S. Narendra and Steve Morse, Prof. Clyde Martin and Prof. H. F. Chen. He applied his research to Aerospace Control, while interacting with engineers in McDonell Douglas Aerospace Company in St. Louis, USA. This research culminated the Donald P. Eckmann Award in 1988 with citation “in recognition of his outstanding contributions in the field of Automatic Control”. Starting from 1990, he started working in the field of Robotics and Machine Vision. As an active member of the IEEE, he established the Technical Committee on Sensor Guided Manipulation in Automation (SGMA). In 2000, he became a Fellow of the IEEE with citation “for fundamental contributions to system theory with applications to robust control, vision and multisensory fusion”. During 2001–2006, he established the IEEE Technical Committee on Bio Systems and Control. He became a Fellow of IFAC in 2014 with citation “for seminal contributions to dynamic modeling in machine vision, biology and biomedical science”.
