Dr. Demos Teneketzis's 65th birthday at Ann Arbor Michigan


Dr. Demos Teneketzis (LIDS/MIT, PhD, 1979) is currently Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He is an international leader in stochastic control, decentralized stochastic systems, stochastic scheduling and resource allocation, mathematical economics.

A workshop on Information, Decisions and Networks was held in Ann Arbor Michigan in honor of Professor Demos Teneketzis’ 65th birthday from July 28-29, 2016. Speakers, students and friends came from around the world and represented all corners of industry and academia. Over 40 friends and colleagues attended, including 20 of Demos' former students. Throughout the two-day event, this group of accomplished researchers presented on their work spanning the different fields of control theory.


The title of the workshop reflects the breadth of Demos' research interests. He has made fundamental contributions to information structures in decentralized stochastic control, decentralized sequential detection, multi-armed bandits, scheduling resource allocation and routing in networks, diagnosability in discrete event systems, real-time communication and information theory, mechanism design, energy markets, and cyber-physical security. In addition, Demos is an exemplary teacher who has educated numerous students on stochastics through his popular courses on stochastic processes and stochastic control.
