Brief Introduction:

         “Post-Doctoral Research Center of Control Science and Engineering” (PDRC) is established on the basis of the State- 1st -level discipline Control Science and Engineering of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. PDRC also boasts The Key Laboratory of System Control and Information Processing initialized by Ministry of Education.

         PDRC, in accordance with national long-and medium-term development plans, takes the prediction of complex systems, control and optimization technology, autonomous systems and network engineering, health and safety-oriented image processing as its current major research directions by focusing on numerous key technologies in system control and information processing greatly needed for economic and social development. Based on three directions, researches are undertaken mainly in the following topics: behavior analysis and control of complex nonlinear systems, advanced control theory and design methods of complex industrial processes, industrial process optimization for energy- saving and cost-reducing, real-time supervision and optimization of large scale complex systems , design and crol of autonomous system, the key technologies of wireless sensor     network and applications, remote sensing technology and spatial three-dimensional network, image based medical diagnosis and surgical navigation, recognition and tracking of complex objects, and computational modelling in complicated life system.

        PDRC currently boasts 71 full-time research members, of whom 57 are professors or associate professors, 55 holds doctoral degrees. It’s worth-noting that 24 outstanding young academic leaders have been enlisted in various national and Shanghai’s talent programs, including 2 introduced by 1000-elite Program, 2 national talents of New Century Hundred-Thousand-Ten Thousand Talent Project, 4 Cheung Kong Scholars, and 4 winners of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars and 9 supported by Program for trans-century or New Century Excellent Talents of Ministry of Education. Many of them are members of management institutions, consulting offices, and technical committees of relevant associations. Some also serve as editors at various academic journals nationwide, and 19 experts are editors of over 35 international academic journals.

        In adherence to the guide of scientific frontiers and key national needs, the fundamental of discipline construction and talents nurture and the way of internationalization, PDRC is dedicated to making it a birthplace of innovative ideas, a gathering place of talents and a supporting base for high-tech development. Thus, it can provide platform for discipline development, nurture talents for our country and supply technological support for the economic development of society and the construction of key projects.
