Hurwitz Memorial Lecture Series

In commemoration of Hurwitz' seminal contributions the Automatic Control Laboratory established the Hurwitz Memorial Lectureship where leading researchers in the control field are invited to ETH to deliver a special lecture.

In 1999, Prof. Shankar Sastry gave lectures on Robotic Surgery and Hybrid Systems with accent on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles .

2001 was the year of Prof. Stephen P. Boyd, who delivered lectures on Optimization over Linear Matrix Inequalities and Optimal Design of Analog CMOS Circuits via Geometric Programming.

In 2003 Prof. Graham C. Goodwin delivered lectures on Finite Alphabet Control and Estimation and Constrained Estimation

In 2008 the Hurwitz lecturer was Prof. Christos Papadimitriou giving two seminars titled "The Algorithmic Lens: How the Computational Perspective is Transforming the Sciences" and "The Computation of Equilibria" .

In 2010 the Hurwitz lecturer was Prof. Allen Tannenbaum giving two seminars titled Mathematical Methods in Medical Imaging and Optimal Mass Transport Mappings for Surface Warping and Image Registration.

In 2012 the Hurwitz lecturer was Prof. Pravin Varaiya giving two seminars titled Selling Random Wind and Measuring Traffic with Wireless Sensors.

In 2014 the Hurwitz lecturer was Prof. Mathukumalli Vidyasagar giving two seminars titled Machine Learning Methods in the Computational Biology of Cancer and Recent Advances in Compressed Sensinng.
