Jörg Raisch studied technical cybernetics at the University of Stuttgart and control engineering at the UMIST (University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology). After completing his doctorate in Stuttgart, he worked for two years as a postdoc in the Systems Control Group at the University of Toronto. After his habilitation in 1998, he headed a research group at the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems in Magdeburg. In 2002 he was also appointed external scientific member there. From 2000 to 2006, he headed the Chair for Systems Theory of Technical Processes at the Otto von Guericke University in Magdeburg. Since 2006, he has headed the Control Systems department at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Technical University (TU) Berlin. His main research interests are hybrid and hierarchical control systems, distributed consensus-based control, the control of time-dependent event-discrete systems in so-called tropical algebras, as well as control engineering applications in process, medical and energy technology. He was a member of the editorial boards of the journals "European Journal of Control", "IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology", "Automatica" and from 2017 to 2020 chaired the technical committee "Discrete Event and Hybrid Systems" of the IFAC (International Federation of Automatic controls). He is currently a member of the "Editorial Boards of Discrete Event Dynamic Systems and Foundations" and "Trends in Systems and Control" magazines. Detailed Information:
