Saša V. Raković - Lectures


Dr. Raković has delivered more than 40 invited seminars at the leading universities worldwide including, inter alia, Imperial College London, Cambridge University, Oxford University, ETH Zürich, KU Leuven, Supélec, TU Eidhoven, UT at Austin, UM at Ann Arbour, UMD at College Park, UC at Santa Barbara, UW at Seattle, Texas A&M University and Tel Aviv University. He has also delivered more than 50 presentations at key international conferences in control theory and engineering.

In view of his contributions to model predictive control, Dr. Raković has been invited to deliver semi-plenary and plenary talks at IFAC international conferences on nonlinear model predictive control in 2008 and 2012.

  • Invention of Prediction Structures and Categorization of Robust MPC Syntheses.
  • Plenary Talk.
  • The 4th IFAC Conference on Nonlinear Model Predictive Control 2012, NMPC12.
  • Set–Theoretic Methods in Model Predictive Control.
  • Semi-Plenary Talk
  • The 3rd IFAC Conference on Nonlinear Model Predictive Control 2008, NMPC08.

The impact of Dr. Raković's research activity has also resulted in a number of invitations to deliver invited talks and originate and teach lecture courses in the felds of model predictive control and analysis of dynamics as well as control synthesis via optimization and set–valued methods.
