Panos J. Antsaklis
H. Clifford and Evelyn A. Brosey Professor of Electrical Engineering
A world authority on cyber physical control systems, Panos Antsaklis works to make the invisible computer systems we use every day—such as those embedded in our cars, airplanes, and appliances—smarter, faster, and more autonomous. Since 2010, he has been the editor-in-chief of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Transactions on Automatic Control, the flagship journal for research in the mathematical theory of automatic control systems.
Antsaklis is a former member of the Subcommittee on Networking and Information and Technology of the President’s Council of Advisors for Science and Technology, which advises the U.S. President on policy issues related to science and technology, including math and science education. From 2008 to 2012 he chaired the Scientific Advisory Board of Germany’s Max-Planck-Institut in Magdeburg. He is Fellow of IEEE, of IFAC, the International Federation of Automatic Control, and of AAAS, the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is also former president of the IEEE Control Systems Society.
Antsaklis, a native of Greece, is the founding president of the Mediterranean Control Association, a body of scientists and engineers dedicated to promoting research, sharing information, and facilitating technology transfer within the Mediterranean region.
He is an IEEE Millennium Medal recipient and the 2006 Engineering Alumni Medal of Brown University, awarded to alumni who have established exceptional records of accomplishment in their engineering careers. In December 2012, Antsaklis was awarded an honoray degree (Docteur Honoris Causa) by the University of Lorraine (Universite de Lorraine), Nancy, Lorraine, France.
The Brosey Professorships were funded by H. Clifford Brosey (’42), an engineering graduate who was a star of both the Notre Dame football and track teams. After serving for three years in the U.S. Army, primarily in the Pacific Theater, he embarked on a successful sales career with General Electric.
