Kirsten Morris has been elected chair of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Activity Group on Control and Systems Theory for 2018-2019. This SIAM Activity Group fosters collaboration and interaction among mathematicians, engineers, and other scientists in those areas of research related to the theory of systems and their control. The SIAG organizes the biennial SIAM Conference on Control and Its Applications, sponsors minisymposia at SIAM meetings and periodic conferences, and maintains a member directory, an electronic newsletter, and an electronic discussion group. Every two years, the activity group also awards the SIAG/Control and Systems Theory Prize to a young researcher for outstanding research contributions to mathematical control or systems theory and the SIAG/CST Best SICON Paper Prize to the author(s) of the two most outstanding papers published in the SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization (SICON).
