Prof. Dr. Peter Sagirow (1915 - 1997) was with the University of Stuttgart from 1958 until 1980. Having held a Professorship in Theoretical Mechanics he had the farsightedness to establish the field of systems and control theory at the University of Stuttgart at a very early stage. Among many other lasting contributions he was significantly involved in the creation of the very successful study program of Engineering Cybernetics that celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2011.
With this annual seminar series the Institute for Systems Theory and Automatic Control intends to honor Peter Sagirow and the decisive role he played in the development of the field of control at the University of Stuttgart. Each year a highly distinguished researcher is brought to campus to report on the state of the art, achievements and challenges in the field of systems and control to a wider audience.
