The Colloquia

The Colloquia Roberto Tempo in Automatica are dedicated to the memory of our friend and colleague Roberto, who passed away suddenly in 2017 during a ski mountaineering trip in the Alps. Roberto always believed in importance of sharing and disseminating results in his community. Roberto was an extraordinary communicator. His talks were always clear and highly inspiring. As an author of scientific contributions, he spent an incredible amount of time making sure that his papers were accurate and easily accessible.

The Colloquia are general seminars held by renowned scientists. They range over all aspects of systems and control, and on interdisciplinary subjects where control plays a fundamental role. They aim to contribute at the cultural atmosphere of our Institute, so offering young people the opportunity to be exposed to the teaching of internationally known scholars working in different research areas.

The Colloquia are organized by the Information & Systems Engineering (ISE) group of IEIIT CNR.

The Colloquia are co-sponsored by the Italian Chapters of the IEEE Control Systems Society, the IEEE Robotics & Automation Society, the IEEE Power & Energy Society, and the IEEE PoliTo Student Branch.
