Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The annual American Control Conference is normally held on mainland America, but this year it was held in Anchorage, Alaska. The attendance was low at 880 delegates, but considering the awful events of the 11th September 2001 and the distance involved, this was a reasonable figure. The awards luncheon i s always one of the highlights of the ACC, where leading researchers are honoured. The most prestigious award, the Richard E. Bellman Control Heritage Award, was presented to Prof. Petar Kokotovic (Santa Barbara).
