In order to strengthen exchange and cooperation with domestic and overseas institutes and experts, the State Key Laboratory of Robotics of Shenyang Institute of Automation (SIA) launched the “Academic Forum of Robot Cutting-Edge Technology” lecture series, which plans to invite 10 to 15 experts to visit SIA each year. The series kicked off on November 14, 2011 with a report named “Control Design for Life Science Automation” by Professor Tzyh-Jong Tarn, a CAS Einstein professor from Washington University in St. Louis.

The opening ceremony was presided over by Professor Han Jianda, deputy director of the State Key Laboratory of Robotics. Professor Yu Haibin, head of SIA, Professor Sun Lei, director of SIA’s Human Resources and Education Department,and more than 150 researchers and graduate students attended the forum. Professor Yu awarded the honor of “Academic Forum of Robot Cutting-Edge Technology” to Prof. Tarn. The report, “Control Design for Life Science Automation”, focuses on the latest research on system control methods, the integration of micro-nano-sensor technology and human complex models. Prof. Tarn made discussions and exchanges with SIA researchers and students after the report.

With such a good start, the “Academic Forum of Robot Cutting-Edge Technology” lecture series will build a platform for communication and cooperation between SIA and overseas scholars, which will broaden the academic vision, enhance the ability of original innovation, and strengthen the robotics development of SIA.
Tarn is currently a Professor in the Department of Systems Science and Mathematics and the Director of the Center for Robotics and Automation at Washington University in St. Louis. An active member of the IEEE, Professor Tarn served as the President of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, 1992-1993, the Director of the IEEE Division X (Systems and Control), 1995-1996, and a member of the IEEE Board of Directors, 1995-1996.
