Keynote Speakers


Topic One:

Current Aspects of Signal Processing for Health Monitoring of Rotating Machines

Jerome Antoni

Professor Jerome Antoni received the M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering (1995) from the University of Technology of Compiegne and the Ph.D. degree in Signal Processing (2001) from the University of Grenoble, France. He got a professor position at the University of Technology of Compiegne, in 2008. He is now with the Laboratory of Vibrations and Acoustics at the University of Lyon, France. Jerome Antoni has 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals. The main direction of his research activity is concerned with the development of signal processing methods for mechanical systems, in particular for Condition Monitoring. Another theme of interest is the resolution of inverse problems in acoustics and vibrations, in particular from probabilistic approaches. His current interests deal with the cyclostationary modelling of rotating machine signals, blind source separation, and (non-) parametric identification of mechanical systems and material properties, and acoustic imaging.

Professor Jerome Antoni is with the editorial boards of Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing (Elsevier) and International Journal of Rotating Machinery (Hindawi).



Topic Two: 

Control and estimation algorithms in distributed systems

Guido Herrmann

Professor Guido Herrmann (Reader -Associate-Professor in Control and Dynamics, University of Bristol, FIET, SenMIEEE) obtained his first degree, MS+BSc, from the Technical University of Berlin, Germany, in 1997, and his PhD in Control in 2001 from the University of Leicester, UK. He spent two years at the A*Star Data-Storage Institute devising and testing novel robust control algorithms for high-precision servo-problems in hard disk drives and he was another four years at the University of Leicester as Senior Researcher and Lecturer, before joining the University of Bristol. Guido Herrmann’s research interests are in the development of novel robust and adaptive controllers. A particular target has been in recent years to make adaptive control fit for real-life engineering problems, by increasing their robustness and making them suited to distributed processes. Results in nano-precision servo control of hard-disk drives and force microscopes, for the distributed control structures in robotics and in automotive systems have been developed together with industrial companies such as Western Digital, Jaguar Land Rover, Tata UK or Vector Informatik.

Guido Herrmann has more than 180 publications, including 2 monographs (Springer, CRC/Taylor and Francis), 58 journal papers. He has (co-)supervised14 PhD students to completion and led projects valued more than 1M, advising also 6 senior researchers and visitors. He wasthe chair of two international conferences in robotics and he has been member of the two IFAC Technical Committees in Robotics and Control Design for which he carried out senior editing duties at various IFAC conferences. He has been a member of the IEEE Control Systems Society Technical Committee in Intelligent Control since 2008. He was a member of the Editorial Board cohort 2010-15 of the IEEE/ASME Transactions in Mechatronics and he has been an editorial board member of Springer’s International Journal on Social Robotics since 2009.



Topic Three: 

On the stability of weighted multiple model adaptive control----Virtual Equivalent System Approach

Weicun Zhang

Professor Weicun Zhang received his M.S. degree in Automatic Control (1989) from Beijing Institute of Technology and the Ph.D. degree in Control Theory and Applications (1993) from Tsinghua University, P. R. China. He joined the School of Automation and Electrical Engineering, University of Science and Technology Beijing, in 2002, as associate professor. From March 1997 to May 1998, he was a visiting research fellow in Industrial and Operations Engineering Department, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, From September 2006 to August 2007, he was a visiting professor in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Seoul National University, South Korea.

His research interests include: self-tuning adaptive control, multiple model adaptive control and estimation. As representative research work, he established a Virtual Equivalent System (VES) theory for unified analysis (stability, convergence, and robustness) of a general self-tuning control system, which is independent of specific control strategy and parameter estimation algorithm. He proofed the stability of weighted multiple model adaptive control system with the help of VES.



Topic Four: 

Control technologies in decarbonizing the whole energy chain from top to tail

Kang Li

Professor Kang Li received Ph.D. degreein Control Theory and Applications from Shanghai Jiaotong University in 1995, and a DSc degree from Queen’s University Belfast in 2015.

Between 1995 and 2012, he worked at Shanghai Jiaotong University, Delft University of Technology and Queen’s University Belfast as a research fellow. Since 2002, he was a Lecturer, a Senior Lecturer (2007),and a Reader (2009) with the School of Electronics, ElectricalEngineering and Computer Science, Queen’s UniversityBelfast, Belfast, U.K, and he is a Professorof Intelligent Systems and Control since 2011. His research interests include nonlinearsystem modelling, identification, and control, and bio-inspired computational intelligence,with applications tothe development of advanced control technologies for decarbonizing the whole energy systems, from integration of renewable energies, smart grid, to electric vehicles, and energy reduction in manufacturing. He is developing a new generation of minimal-invasive energy monitoring system and big data analytics platform which are currently trialled in several energy intensive industries, and has received several prestigious awards for the system developed. He has produced over 300 publications with several award winning papers and 14 conference proceedings in his area, and has been invited to give over 50 keynotes and research seminars worldwide. His research has intensively supported by research councils and industry with over 5 Million funding in the past 10 years. Prof Li is an Executive Editor of Transactions of the Institute of Measurement and Control, and an Associate Editor of several other journals.
