Prof. Albert Benveniste

Albert Benveniste was born in 1949. He graduated in 1971 from Ecole des Mines de Paris. He performed his These d'Etat in Mathematics, probability theory, in 1975. From 1976 to 1979 he was associate professor in mathematics at Universite' de Rennes I. From 1979 to now he has been Directeur de Recherche at INRIA.

His interests include: system indentification and change detection in signal processing and automatic control, vibration mechanics, and reactive and real-time systems design in computer science. He has coauthored with M. Metivier and P. Priouret the book "Adaptive Algorithms and Stochastic Approximations", and has been an editor, jointly with Michele Basseville of the collective monograph "Detection of abrupt changes in signals and systems". He has been co-inventor, jointly with Paul Le Guernic, of the synchronous language Signal for reactive systems design.

In 1980 Albert Benveniste was co-winner of the IEEE Trans. on Automatic Control Best Transaction Paper Award fo his paper on blind deconvolution in data communications. In 1990 he received the CNRS silver medal and in 1991 he has been elected IEEE fellow.

From 1986 to 1990 he was vice-chairman of the IFAC committee on Theory and was chairman of this committee for 1991-1993. From 1987 to 1990 he was associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, and, from 1991 to 1995, he was Associate Editor at Large for this journal. He has been associate editor for Int. J. of Adaptive Control and Signal Processing, Int. J. of Discrete Event Dynamical Systems. He is currently member of the Editorial Board of the Proceedings of the IEEE. From 1994 to 1996 he has been Directeur Scientifique (Senior Chief Scientist) at Inria, and since 1996 he is member of the Inria board in charge of drawing future research directions. Since 1997, he is chairman of the "software chapter" of the RNRT funding programme of the French ministeries for research and telecommunications, for telecommunications (Reseau National de la Recherche en Telecommunications). Since 2000 he is member of the scientific board (20 members) for the RNTL funding programme of the french ministeries for research and industry for research on software (Reseau National pour les Technologies du Logiciel).
