**Short Biograhpy:**

Carsten W. Scherer earned the Ph.D. degree in mathematics from the University of Würzburg (Germany) in 1991. After six months of research at the University of Groningen (The Netherlands), the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) and Washington University (St. Louis) respectively, Dr. Scherer joined Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands) in 1993 where he held positions as an assistant and associate professor. In fall 1999 he spent a three months sabbatical as a visiting professor at the Automatic Control Laboratory of ETH Zurich. From December 2001 until Feburary 2010 he was a full professor within the Delft Center for Systems and Control at Delft University of Technology.

Since March 2010 he holds the new SRC SimTech Chair Mathematical Systems Theory

in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Stuttgart.
