Jose Romagnoli received the “Best Paper Award” at the 50th Anniversary of the International Congress Methodologies For Emerging Technologies In Automation conference held in Rome, Italy, November 13-15, 2006. The paper was entitled, “An Intelligent/Smart Framework for Real-Time Process Monitoring and Supervision,” which he co-wrote with former student Bharat Bhushan (University of Sydney, Australia).

The paper proposed a framework for monitoring and supervision of process reactions to detect and diagnose problems as they occur.  The efficiency of the proposed strategy was tested, using a continuous stirred tank reactor process plant.  The selection committee commented that, “the paper deals with extremely interesting and up-to-date technical and scientific problems and shows great potential for possible extensive adoption by the industrial world.”

Jose Romagnoli joined LSU in August, 2005 as the Gordon A. and Mary Cain Endowed Chair & Professor.  He joined LSU following more than 10 years at the University of Sydney in Australia, where he most recently held the position of Chair & Professor of Process Systems Engineering and head of the Chemical Engineering Department.  Romagnoli received his B.S. from the Universidad Nacional del Sur in Argentina in 1973 and his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in 1980, both in chemical engineering. He is a world-renowned expert in process control.
