Carla Seatzu received her Laurea degree in electrical engineering and her PhD degree in electronic engineering and computer science from the University of Cagliari, Italy, in 1996 and 2000, respectively. In 2002 she joined the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of the University of Cagliari as an assistant professor of Automatic Control. She currently serves as as associate professor of Automatic Control in the same department.
Carla Seatzu's research interests include discrete-event systems, hybrid systems, Petri nets, manufacturing systems, networked control systems, and control of mechanical systems. She has published over 170 papers and one textbook on these topics.
Carla Seatzu has served as General Co-Chair of the 18th IEEE Int. Conf. on Emerging Technology and Factory Automation (ETFA2013). She was Chair of the National Organizing Committee of the 2nd IFAC Conf. on the Analysis and Design of Hybrid Systems (ADHS'06) and member of the International Program Committee of over 50 international conferences. She is associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control and Nonlinear Analysis: Hybrid Systems. She is associate editor of the Conference Editorial Board of the IEEE Control System Society and of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society; she is chair of the IEEE IES Technical Committee on Factory Automation - Subcommittee on Industrial Automated Systems and Control.
