Biosketch: YangQuan Chen (SM’95–SrM’98) received the B.S. degree in industrial automation from the University of Science and Technology of Beijing, Beijing, China, in 1985, the M.S. degree in automatic control from the Beijing Institute of Technology, Beijing, in 1989, and the Ph.D. degree in advanced control and instrumentation from the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, Singapore, in 1998. He is currently an Associate Professor of electrical and computer engineering at Utah State University, Logan, and the Director of the Center for Self-Organizing and Intelligent Systems. He is the holder of 13 U.S. patents in various aspects of hard disk drive servomechanics and one US patent on fractional order controller tuning. He has published over 100 journal and book chapter papers, over 200 refereed conference papers, and more than 50 industrial technical reports. He has coauthored two research monographs “Iterative Learning Control: Convergence, Robustness and Applications” (with Changyun Wen, Lecture Notes Series in Control and Information Science, Springer-Verlag, 1999), “ Iterative Learning Control: Robustness and Monotonic Convergence for Interval Systems” (with Hyo-Sung Ahn and Kevin L. Moore, Communication and Control Engineering Series, Springer-Verlag, 2007), and three textbooks “System Simulation: Techniques and Applications Based on MATLAB/Simulink” (with Dingyü Xue, Tsinghua University Press, Beijing, China, April 2002), “Solving Advanced Applied Mathematical Problems Using Matlab” (with Dingyü Xue, Tsinghua University Press, August 2004, 2nd Edition Nov. 2008), “Solving Control Related Mathematical Problems Using Matlab” (with Dingyü Xue, Tsinghua University Press, November 2007),  “Linear Feedback Control: Analysis and Design with Matlab” (with Dingyü Xue, SIAM Press, Philadelphia, PA, 2007) and "Solving Applied Mathematical Problems with MATLAB" (with Dingyu Xue, CRC Press, Nov. 2008). His recent monographs are “Optimal Observation for Cyber-Physical Systems:  A Fisher Information Matrix Based Approach” (with Song, Sastry and Tas, Springer, July 2009) and “Fractional Order Control: Fundamentals and Applications” (with Monje, Vinagre, Xue and Feliu, Springer Advanced Industrial Control Series, summer 2010). Dr. Chen is an Associate Editor on the Conference Editorial Board of the Control Systems Society of the IEEE (since 2002) and an Associate Editor on the Instrument Society of the America Editorial Board for the American Control Conference (since 2004). He is the General Chair for IEEE/ASME Int. Conf. on Mechatronics and Embedded Systems Applications (MESA) 2010, Qingdao, China and served as Program Chair for the ASME/IEEE Int. Conf. on MESA, Las Vegas, NV, in 2007 and MESA09 San Diego, CA, 2009 and Program Co-Chair for the IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation for 2006 and 2007. He is the TC Chair for MESA under ASME DED and a member of IFAC TC2.2. Dr. Chen is a member of AMA, AWRAAUVSI, ASME, IEEE, and the American Society for Engineering Education.  He serves as an Associate Editor for Acta Montanistica SlovacaJournal of Mechatronics and Application (Hindawi), Fractional Calculus and Applied Analysis (FCAA), Fractional Dynamic Systems (FDS),  ASME J. of Dynamic Systems, Measurement and Control and IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology (TCST).
