Policy Formulation in Complex Systems

Contemporary challenges such as mitigating the negative effects of  
global warming, reducing dependence on imported oil, reducing damage  
from floods, and many more challenges in socio-political-economic  
problems have one fact in common: There are important stakeholders  
that influence each other. When various stakeholders have options to  
choose from, a major question is how they should make their choices.  
Does a stakeholder?s choice affect the risk management of the other  
stakeholders? How should national policies be formulated? We discuss  
how the process for providing solutions relies on the theories of  
games and complex systems.


Prof. Jose B. Cruz, Jr. is a noted control theorist and a  
Distinguished Professor of Engineering at the Department of Electrical

others. He is a recipient of Richard E. Bellman Control Heritage Award  
in 1994 and the IEEE Education Society Achievement Award in 2009.

He obtained his BS in Electrical Engineering at the University of the  
Philippines, Diliman in 1953, graduating with the first summa cum  
laude in engineering from UP. He earned an MS in Electrical  
Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a PhD in  
Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois.
