To recognize outstanding contributions to control systems engineering, science or technology.
The IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS) presents several awards annually for technical achievements in the areas of interest to the Society, as well as awards for service to the Society. An individual need not be a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and/or the CSS to be eligible to receive technical achievement awards of the CSS. Selection of the winner for each of those technical achievement awards is made by a CSS committee whose members have not been involved in the nominations for that award.
The CSS also supports awards given by the IEEE, which include the IEEE Control Systems Award and the CSS IEEE Fellows Award. Information can be found in Other IEEE Awards. The CSS also supports awards given by the American Automatic Control Council (AACC) and the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) in its areas of interest. Links to further information about these non-CSS awards are listed in the side-bar. General information about CSS awards can be obtained from the Chair of the CSS Awards Committee. The CSS Awards program operates within the bylaws of the IEEE. Additional information about IEEE procedures, e.g. how to propose and get approval of a new CSS Award, can be found in the IEEE Awards and Recognitions Manual - available in pdf format from the IEEE website link above.
List of CSS Awards
Winners of the following awards are selected by committees and/or officers of the CSS. Criteria and procedures for nomination, selection, announcement and presentation of each of these awards are linked to the award names below.
To recognize distinguished contributions to control systems science or engineering.
The Antonio Ruberti Young Researcher Prize was established in 2005 to honor the memory of Antonio Ruberti. Antonio Ruberti was one of the first three Professors of Automatic Control in Italy (together with Giorgio Quazza and Antonio Lepschy). In 1964 the first chair of Automatic Control was established at the University of Rome "La Sapienza" and he was hired to occupy that position. He was Faculty Dean and later Rector (for 11 years) of "La Sapienza", Minister of Minister of University and Scientific Research, Commissioner of the EU for Science, Research and Education, and he later held several other positions in EU Commission till his sudden and unexpected death in 2000. His scientific interests in the field of system and control were very wide. In particular, he was one of the early pioneers of geometric control methods for nonlinear systems. For further information about Professor Ruberti, please follow this link to the following website dedicated to his contribution - currently under construction.
