United Technologies Research Center (UTRC) delivers the world's most advanced technologies, innovative thinking and disciplined research to the businesses of United Technologies Corporation (UTC) -- industry leaders in aerospace propulsion, building infrastructure and services, heating and air conditioning, fire and security systems and power generation. UTRC operates four worldwide locations (East Hartford, Connecticut; Berkeley, California; Cork, Ireland; and Shanghai, China) and partners with UTC businesses and renowned external research organizations to impact organic growth of the Corporation through new product and process innovations. The operating units of UTC include: Carrier heating and air conditioning, Hamilton Sundstrand aerospace systems and industrial products, Otis elevators and escalators, Pratt & Whitney aircraft engines, Sikorsky helicopters, UTC Fire & Security systems and UTC Power fuel cells. Our products require increasingly sophisticated dynamical system modeling and control to achieve the levels of performance demanded by our customers. The most challenging control problems are highly multidisciplinary and require a collaborative, concurrent engineering approach. UTRC has a history of meeting these challenges by assembling integrated teams drawing talent from our business units, UTRC and academic partners who come together to deliver innovative modeling and control solutions and technologies with both business and academic impact. www.utrc.utc.com.

    HYCON2
The FP7 Network of Excellence HYCON2, started in September 2010, is a four-yearcollaborative project coordinated by CNRS (French National Center forScientific Research).

HYCON2 aims at stimulating and establishing the long-term integration of theEuropean research community, leading institutions and industry in the strategicfield of control of complex, large-scale, and networked dynamical systems.

The project assesses and coordinates basic and applied research, fromfundamental analytical properties of complex systems to control designmethodologies with networking, self-organizing and system-wide coordination.HYCON2 has identified several Applications Domains to motivate, integrate, andevaluate research in networked control. These domains are Transportation ,Energy, and Biological and Medical Systems.

Since 1917, the IEEE Awards Program has paid tribute to technical professionals whose exceptional achievements and outstanding contributions have made a lasting impact on technology, society, the engineering profession, and humanity. Recipients of IEEE-Level Medals, Technical Field Awards, and Recognitions are recognized as the most influential members in their chosen field, revered for their resolve to discover, extend, or complement technological achievements in education, industry, research, and service. Each year, new recipients join the prestigious IEEE Award honoree list through a selective nomination and approval process which we encourage you to become a part of.

IEEE CDC-ECC conference attendees are invited to join us 14 December at 6:15 pm for the Awards Ceremony where Eduardo Sontag, a researcher whose contributions to modern nonlinear control systems theory have become fundamental building blocks in the field and have impacted a wide range of engineering disciplines, will be presented with the 2011 IEEE Control Systems Award .

The major objective of the MULTIFORM research project, funded within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission, is to enable a seamsless integration and interoperability of model-based design and analysis methods and tools in multi-formalism, heterogeneous environments for industrial complex systems design. To this end, a software-based design framework is developed that provides (a) software-based design flow management support from early specification to implementation, (b) tool interoperability by automated model transformations and direct tool interconnections, (c) facilities for the management of design data (including models, parameters, and other documentation) and their interrelations, and (d) new and improved methodologies for control systems design and analysis. The MULTIFORM project is coordinated by the Process Dynamics and Operations Group at TU Dortmund, Germany. The consortium consists of academic partners from Germany (TU Dortmund, RWTH Aachen), The Netherlands (TU Eindhoven, Embedded Systems Institute), France (Universite Joseph Fourier Grenoble), and Denmark (Aalborg University). Two industrial partners from Denmark (KVCA A/S) and Germany (VEMAC) provide direct access to industrial problem formulations and challenges.
