Necmiye Ozay receives CDC best student paper award

Necmiye Ozay, an Electrical Engineering graduate student, is the recipient of the best student paper award at the Conference on Decision and Control (CDC) for her paper entitled "A sparsification approach to set membership identification of a class of affine hybrid systems", co-authored with M. Sznaier, C. Lagoa and O. Camps.

The CDC is recognized as the premier scientific and engineering conference dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practice of systems and control. The CDC annually brings together an international community of researchers and practitioners in the field of automatic control to discuss new research results, perspectives on future developments, and innovative applications relevant to decision making, systems and control, and related areas.

Nominations were made by the student's major professor (advisor) following the procedure as described on the CDC conference website using the official nomination form. A paragraph certifying that the nominee was the main author of the paper, was a student at the time of the nomination and has a IEEE membership for the current year, a brief description of the contribution of the paper and the main reason for nomination for the award, the advisor's telephone and e-mail information, as well as the student IEEE membership number should be included. Nominations were limited to one per advisor.

Necmiye Ozay's research interests include computational aspects of control system design; hybrid and cyber-physical systems, system identification and validation, and dynamics-based data analysis. Her areas of specialty include discrete Event and Hybrid Systems, Embedded Control Systems, Nonlinear Control, and Cyber-Physical Systems.
