The High Impact Paper Award from the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) has selected “Robust constrained model predictive control using linear matrix inequalities” paper by Lehigh University ChBE Professor Mayuresh Kothare as the 2023 recipient. Co-authors include Venkataramanan Balakrishnan, Dean of the Case School of Engineering and Manfred Morari, Electrical and Systems Engineering Faculty Fellow of UPenn.
Founded in Paris 1957, IFAC is the worldwide organization tasked with promoting the science and technology of automatic control in all systems. It is somewhat bigger and far reaching than the IEEE Control Systems Society since it is interdisciplinary and cuts across the major engineering societies -- IEEE, AIChE, ASME, AIAA, etc. 
This High Impact Paper Award is given out once every three years, based on nominations of papers with high citations and impact published during a stipulated approximately 20 year period (Jan. 1993 to December 2014 this time) in any of the IFAC journals.  IFAC has 8 journals as part of its publications and several conference proceedings that it archives. The IFAC journal Automatica is widely regarded as one of top journals in the field of automatic control.
This paper is currently number 14 on the list of highest cited papers among all papers published in Automatica since the start of the journal around 1964. The Awards Ceremony is in Japan at the IFAC World Congress in July 2023.
