This July, Professor Allen Tannenbaum (ECE) will speak at the 20th International Symposium on Mathematical Theory of Networks and Systems in Melbourne, Australia.

Just days into the fall semester, Allen Tannenbaum, one of the newest professors in Boston University’s Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, has already received his first honor.

The organizers of the 20th International Symposium on Mathematical Theory of Networks and Systems recently asked Tannenbaum to deliver a plenary lecture at their July 2012 conference in Melbourne, Australia.

“This is an honor because this is one of the major conferences on mathematical systems theory,” said Tannenbaum.

The interdisciplinary conference looks at mathematical structures and how they connect to the understanding of networks, systems and networked systems.

A previous attendee, Tannenbaum looks forward to returning and seeing the latest cutting-edge results from the leaders of the field.

At the Symposium, he plans to speak about optimal mass transport as applied to problems in information theory, signal processing and control.

Tannenbaum’s current research interests include systems and control; image processing; medical imaging; computer vision; and signal processing.
