Alexander L. FRADKOV
Alexander Lvovich Fradkov born May 22, 1948; received the Diploma degree in mathematics from the Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics of St.Petersburg State University ( Dept. of Theoretical Cybernetics) in 1971; Candidate of Sciences (Ph.D.) degree in Engineering Cybernetics from St.Petersburg Mechanical Institute (now - Baltic State Technical University - BSTU) in 1975 and Doctor of Sciences degree in Control Engineering in 1986 from St.Petersburg Electrotechnical Institute.
From 1971 to 1987 he occupied different research positions and in 1987 became Professor of Computer Science with BSTU. Since 1990 he has been the Head of the Laboratory of Complex Systems Control of the Institute for the Problems of Mechanical Engineering of Russian Academy of Sciences. He is also a part time professor with the Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics of St.Petersburg State University (Dept. of Theoretical Cybernetics).
His research interests are in fields of nonlinear and adaptive control, control of oscillatory and chaotic systems and computer-aided control systems design with applications to mechanical systems. He is also working in the boundary field between Physics and Control (Cybernetical Physics).
He is coauthor of 500 journal and conference papers, 10 patents, 16 books and textbooks, including:
Dr.Fradkov is the Vice-President of the St.Petersburg Informatics and Control Society since 1991, Member of the Russian National Committee of Automatic Control, IEEE Fellow. He organized and co-chaired 1st-11th International (Baltic) Student Olympiades on Automatic Control in 1991-2006; 1st and 2nd International IEEE-IUTAM Conference "Control of Oscillations and Chaos" in 1997 and 2000; 5th IFAC Symposium on Nonlinear Control Systems (NOLCOS'01); 1st and 2nd IEEE-IUTAM-EPS Conferences "Physics and Control" in 2003, 2005; IFAC Workshops "Adaptation and Learning in Control and Signal Processing (ALCOSP'07), "Periodic Control Systems (PSYCO'07), 3rd IEEE Multi-conference on Systems and Control (MSC 2009) and IFAC Workshop Adaptation and Learning in Control and Signal Processing - (ALCOSP 2010). He is a member of IEEE CSS Conference Editorial Board (1998-2007); a member of the IFAC Policy Committee and IFAC Technical Committees on Education and Adaptive Control ; a member of the International Program Committees of a number of conferences, including European Control Conferences of 1997, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2005 and Asian Control Conference of 1997. He was an official representative of Russia at the IFAC General Assembly during 14th IFAC World Congress in 1999. Dr.Fradkov was awarded William Girling Watson Scolarship in Electrical Engineering (University of Sydney, 1995) and JSPS Fellowship for Research in Japan in 1998-1999. In 2005 he was elected as the President of the IPACS (International Physics And Control Society).
In 1991-2010 he visited and gave invited lectures in 70 universities and research centers of 22 countries.
