made significant contributions to advances in this field over the last decade. One example is nonlinear predictive control. This makes it possible to predict future behaviour following interventions in the system, much like a chess player who is always thinking several moves ahead. This approach was the first to combine theoretical stringency with practical applicability, which means the process is now used in industrial practice, for example in the chemical industry and in biotechnology. Professor Allgwer also led the way in determining the significance of nonlinearity. The approach he developed is now generally accepted as the standard method.
He was offered a professorship at Berkeley and the ETH Zurich while completing his doctorate at the University of Stuttgart. He accepted a position in Zurich as an assistant professor in 1996 before taking over a C4 professorship there in 1999. He received further inquiries from Duisburg and from his alma mater in Stuttgart. He has been the head of the Institute for Systems Theory of Technical Processes (Institut fr Systemtheorie technischer Prozesse) at Stuttgart since 1999.

Gabriele Brandstetter is seen as one of the most innovative research figures in German cultural studies. Trained as a philologist and German studies specialist, she is known and internationally recognised as a pioneer in dance studies and was decisively involved in establishing this field as a university discipline. Her interdisciplinary orientation is evident in the 100 and more articles which she has written and which bring together and compare the worlds of theatre, music, art and literature; and it can also be seen in her research projects and in the exhibitions, conferences and dance festivals which she has organised. Professor Brandstetter is one of the leading figures to advocate an approach to cultural studies which transcen
