Center for Systems and Control (CSC@USC)

Systems and control underline a number of cutting edge areas of research in modern science and technology. They involve significant interdisciplinary component and go well beyond traditionally defined departmental boundaries. The Center for Systems and Control at the University of Southern California (CSC@USC) brings together students, postdocs, visitors, and faculty from across different departments within the Viterbi School of Engineering. It provides a forum for exchange of ideas, coordination of research and teaching activities, and organization of regular weekly seminars. The overall goal of the center is to increase the strength and visibility of the systems and control program by continuing the long tradition and legacy going back to Richard Bellman and Leonard Silverman.
