Pierdomenico Pepe, born in 1965 in Sant'Omero, Italy, in 1990 received the Laurea in Electronic Engineering summa cum laude from the University of Ancona, and in 1996 received the Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering from the University of L'Aquila, Italy. In 1991-1992 he served as Second Lieutenant in the Technical Corp of the Italian Army, Rome. In 1992-1993 he served as a Member of the Technical and Scientific Division in the Roland DG Corporation, Martinsicuro, Italy. In 1997-2000 he served as the Technician in the Laboratory of Automatics and Robotics of the University of L'Aquila. In 2000, 2001 and 2004 he held one-semester Visiting Scholar positions at the University of California, Berkeley, at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, and at the Polytechnic University, New York, respectively. He is Senior Member of IEEE from 2006 and Member of SIAM from 2001. From March 2001 to September 2013 he was Tenured Assistant Professor on Automatic Control at the School of Engineering of the University of L'Aquila, Italy, where he was teaching the courses Linear Systems Theory, Automatic Control, Regulation and Control Systems, Advanced Control Theory. From October 2013, he is Associate Professor of Automatic Control at the University of L'Aquila. He's teaching the courses Modelling and Simulation of Control Systems and Foundations of Automatic Control. From 2008 he is a member of the Center of Excellence for Research DEWS, L'Aquila, and from 2010 he is Research Associate at the Institute of Systems Analysis and Informatics of the Italian National Research Council, Rome. From march 2007 to june 2012 he was member of the executive council of the Department of Electrical and Information Engineering, University of L'Aquila. From October 2012 he is member of the executive council of the Department of Information Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics, University of L'Aquila. His main research interests include stability theory, nonlinear control, observers, optimal control, with special emphasis to systems with time-delays, and applications to biomedical, chemical, electrical and mechanical engineering. He has authored or co-authored more than 120 peer-reviewed scientific articles on International Journals and proceedings of International Conferences (the publications on ISI Journals are reported below). He is co-editor a book in the Springer series LNCIS. He is recipient with F. Carravetta and P. Palumbo of Kybernetika Editor's Award 2013. In 2013 he was plenary speaker at the IFAC Joint Conference SSC-TDS-FDA, held in Grenoble. In 2006 he was Chairman and co-Editor of the 6th IFAC Workshop on Time-Delay Systems, held in the City of L'Aquila, Italy. He has served as IPC member in the IFAC Workshops on TDS 2006, 2007 (Nantes, France), 2009 (Sinaia, Romania), 2010 (Praha, Czech Republic), 2012 (Boston, USA), in the IFAC Joint Conference SSC-TDS-FDA 2013 (Grenoble, France), in the 3rd IFAC International Conference on Intelligent Control and Automation Science 2013 (Chengdu, China), in the 13th European Control Conference 2014 (Strasbourg, France), as TPC member in the IEEE Chinese Control and Decision Conference 2011 (Mianyang, China), 2012 (Taiyuan, China), 2013 (Guiyang, China), 2014 (Changsha, China). He is currently serving as TPC member in the 27th IEEE Chinese Control and Decision Conference 2015 (Qingdao, China), and as IPC member in the 15th SIAM Conference on Control and its Applications 2015 (Paris, France) and in the 12th IFAC Workshop on Time Delay Systems 2015 (Ann Arbor, USA). Since October 2010 he is serving as Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control. Since November 2011 he is serving as Associate Editor of Systems & Control Letters (Elsevier). Since January 2014 he is serving as Associate Editor of the Journal on Control and Decision (Taylor & Francis). In 2014 he obtained the italian national scientific qualification as full professor on automatic control.
