Pawel Skruch received the M.S. degree with honors in automation control from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Automatics, Computer Science and Electronics of the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, Poland, in 2001 and the Ph.D. degree (summa cum laude) from the same university in 2005. He received his D.Sc. (Habilitation) degree in Automatics and Robotics from the AGH University in 2016. Since 2007 he has been Assistant Professor in Department of Automatics and Biomedical Engineering at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow and a member of Dynamical Systems and Control Theory Team that is led by Prof. Wojciech Mitkowski. Since 2001 he has been also working at Delphi Technical Center Krakow in Electronics & Safety division where currently he is leading an R&D group for Active Safety, Advanced Driver Assistance and Automated Driving systems. In 2014, he together with Dr. Marek Dlugosz founded AGH University-Delphi laboratory for autonomous vehicle driving. Since 2014 he has been also one of the mentors of the student’s research circle INTEGRA. He is also co-founder of INCOSE Polish Chapter Foundation and a member of INCOSE organization. He is authored and co-authored of 2 monographs and more than 80 research papers (11 book chapters, 26 journals papers, 52 conference proceedings). He supervised 23 Master theses and 21 Bachelor theses. His current research is in the areas of dynamical systems, autonomous systems, modeling and simulation and applications of control theory to software systems

Teresa Zielinska Teresa Zielinska obtained the M.Sc in Engineering with aspecialization in automatic control from the Faculty of Electronics of Warsaw University of Technology (WUT) . She received the Ph.D. in robotics from the Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering of the same university. In year 1995 she obtained D.Sc. degree (habilitation) in Bio-cybernetics from the Polish Academy of Sciences. Since 2005 she is full professor. From 2008 Teresa Zielinska is WUT’s chair of European Master in Robotics EMARO+ an international programme supported by the EU. She is the Senior Member of IEEE and Secretary General of international federation IFToMM. She is member of editorial boards of several international journals. Teresa Zielinska was involved in research in universities of several countres. She investigated control methods of flexible manipulators (Italy), invented novel tactile sensors (UK), developed control systems for the team of autonmous walking machines with its (Singapore), investigated control methods for humanoids (USA). She was also a vising scholar in Japan, China and Australia giving the lectures and seminars for students and staff. Her current research interest focuses on novel robotics including humanoids and human-robot interactions. She is involved in several international projects devoted to international education. She is an author or co-author of over 250 publications.
