Dr. Kimon Valavanis, John Evans Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Dr. Valavanis' research interests span the areas of intelligent control, robotics and automation, and distributed intelligent systems, focusing on: integrated control and diagnostics of unmanned systems; modeling and formation control of cooperative robot teams; navigation/control of unmanned aerial vehicles; modeling, design and development of complex mechatronic systems; design of the next generation of unmanned systems; mathematical theories for intelligent machines. He is Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Senior Member of IEEE, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Intelligent and Robotic Systems (Springer), and Fulbright Scholar.



Dr. Matthew Rutherford, Associate Professor, Department of Computer Science

Dr. Rutherford's research activities revolve around aspects of software system engineering and security for mobile, embedded, distributed, and parallel systems. He has published in the areas of unmanned / autonomous systems, software testing, cyber-physical systems, distributed stream processing, software engineering, distributed systems, content-based networking, model-driven development, generative programming and software configuration management. Dr. Rutherford's research projects are informed and applied to many of the collaborative, cross-disciplinary groups he is associated with. Currently, Dr. Rutherford is the Associate Director of (DU2SL) the DU Unmanned Systems Laboratory.

With over 13,000 members internationally, the Association of Old Crows is an organization for individuals who have common interests in Electronic Warfare (EW), Electromagnetic Spectrum Management Operations, Cyber Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA), Information Operations (IO), and other information related capabilities. The Association of Old Crows provides a means of connecting members and organizations nationally and internationally across government, defense, industry, and academia to promote the exchange of ideas and information, and provides a platform to recognize advances and contributions in these fields.
