2020 American Automatic Control Council O. Hugo Schuck Best Paper Award

Research collaboration between SinBerBEST 2 and UC Berkeley’s Electrical Engineering and Computer Science  (EECS) team resulted in a O. Hugo Schuck Best Paper Award from the American Automatic Control Council (AACC) in 2020.

AACC consists of of nine member societies' control systems divisions, representing the American systems' perspective to the global systems community. Additionally, it supports its member societies in "enhancing the role and contributions of automation to the benefit of humankind." The AACC hosts an annual, interdisciplinary American Control Conference (ACC,) offering annual awards to acknowledge individuals who have contributed significantly to control theory and application, and supports control education.

This Best Paper Award is a significant achievement as there were over 1,200 paper submissions.

The winning paper, “Distributed Storage Investment in Power Networks,” was written by Junjie Qin, Sen Li, Kameshwar Poolla, and Pravin Varaiya. These writers built and examined a network storage investment game to determine if market-driven distributed storage investment will lead to a socially-desirable outcome.
