  • Repeating EventMeet USC: Admission Presentation, Campus Tour, and Engineering Talk

    Mon, Oct 08, 2018

    Viterbi School of Engineering Undergraduate Admission

    University Calendar


    This half day program is designed for prospective freshmen (HS seniors and younger) and family members. Meet USC includes an information session on the University and the Admission process, a student led walking tour of campus, and a meeting with us in the Viterbi School. During the engineering session we will discuss the curriculum, research opportunities, hands-on projects, entrepreneurial support programs, and other aspects of the engineering school. Meet USC is designed to answer all of your questions about USC, the application process, and financial aid.

    Reservations are required for Meet USC. This program occurs twice, once at 8:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m.

    Please make sure to check availability and register online for the session you wish to attend. Also, remember to list an Engineering major as your "intended major" on the webform!

  • Niels Reimers - Keynote Seminar on Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Laboratory to Market: University Technology Licensing, Monday, October 8th at 10:30am in EEB 132

    Mon, Oct 08, 2018 @ 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Niels Reimers, Niels Reimers

    Talk Title: Laboratory to Market: University Technology Licensing

    Abstract: Abstract: A discussion of today's knowledge society, role of universities, specifics of Stanford's experience, cultural and other impediments to innovation, university policies, and elements of a university technology licensing office.

    Biography: Biography: Niels Founded and directed Stanford Office of Technology Licensing, 1968-91. During the 22 years he managed the program at Stanford, he was loaned to Massachusetts Institute of Technology to reform its program, and to the University of California, Berkeley to found its program.
    Cumulative licensing income to Stanford from an outside management firm, from 1954-67, totaled about $4,500. Niels proposed a pilot year-long licensing office with a marketing focus, which pilot year (1968-69) achieved $55,000 in licensing income. A permanent office then was approved, with a staff of Niels and a secretary/office manager. As the work load grew from increasing numbers of technology disclosures from faculty and students, staff were added. Cumulative licensing income from 1968 is expected to top $2 billion in fiscal year 2019.

  • Fall 2018 Joint CSC@USC/CommNetS-MHI Seminar Series

    Speaker: Murat Arcak, University of California Berkeley

    Talk Title: Scalable Symbolic Control

    Abstract: Finite abstractions of continuous dynamical systems play a central role in synthesizing controllers that enforce complex specifications, such as those expressed in temporal logic, and enable the designer to leverage tools from model checking and reactive synthesis. The resulting controller is symbolic, meaning that it only requires knowledge of quantized states that represent the currently occupied partition of the state space. Existing computational tools for this approach have been limited to small systems because both the abstraction and synthesis steps suffer from severe time and space bottlenecks as the system dimension grows. This talk will present recent results that overcome these bottlenecks by exploiting structural system properties. These results include: (1) taking advantage of monotonicity properties of the dynamical model for efficient reachability computations, (2) using sparsity structures in the dependency graph of state variables for parsimonious abstraction algorithms that dramatically reduce runtime, and (3) dividing the control synthesis task into sub-problems of manageable size with compositional procedures. The results will be illustrated with several practically motivated examples.

    Biography: Murat Arcak is a professor at UC Berkeley with appointments in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences and Department of Mechanical Engineering. He received the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Bogazici University, Istanbul (1996) and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of California, Santa Barbara (1997 and 2000). His research is in dynamical systems and control theory with applications to synthetic biology, multi-agent systems, and transportation. He received a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation in 2003, the Donald P. Eckman Award from the American Automatic Control Council in 2006, the Control and Systems Theory Prize from the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) in 2007, and the Antonio Ruberti Young Researcher Prize from the IEEE Control Systems Society in 2014. He is a member of SIAM and a fellow of IEEE.
