MOE Key Laboratory of System Control and Information Processing (under planning)

Brief Introduction

The MOE Key Laboratory of System Control and Information Processing was authorized to be established by Ministry of Education in 2007. It is supported by the State 1st level discipline Control Science and Engineering and a few related areas of State 1st level discipline Instrument Science and Technology of Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

Efforts have been made to develop and construct the theoretical and technological platform of system control and information processing by focusing on three main research areas namely the predication, control and optimization of complex systems, autonomous supervision and service systems, health-and safety-oriented image information processing.

The Lab currently has over 40 members, of whom there are 38 scholars holding a doctorate degree, two national talents of New Century Hundred-Thousand-Ten Thousand Talent Project, four Cheung Kong Scholars, and four winners of the National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars and so forth. It covers an area of 3,200 square meters including offices for official business work and experiments. The instruments and equipments it owns are worth over 17 million yuan including 116 ones whose each value is 10 thousand yuan or more.

The overall goal of the Lab is to build itself into an internationally renowned lab with frontier academic research and its own distinctive characteristics. In specific, its research should be at the leading edge and gain some creative and original of the various important fields in system control and information processing to reach the world- advanced level in technology and application and plays a vital role in the economic and social development of China, especially Shanghai Municipality.
