    Dr. Madan M. Gupta (chronological publication list, book list, principal research contributions, C.V. without publications, categorized publication list, lab page, research compendium) is a professor (emeritus) in the College of Engineering and the director of the Intelligent Systems Research Laboratory at the University of Saskatchewan.

    Dr. Gupta has authored or co-authored over 825 published research papers.  He has recently co-authored the seminal book Static and Dynamic Neural Networks:  From Fundamentals to Advanced Theory.  Dr. Gupta has previously co-authored Introduction to Fuzzy Arithmetic:  Theory and Applications (the first book on fuzzy arithmetic) and Fuzzy Mathematical Models in Engineering and Management Science.  Both of these books have Japanese translations.  Also, Dr. Gupta has edited or co-edited 19 other books as well as many conference proceedings and journals in the fields of his research interests such as adaptive control systems, fuzzy computing, neuro-computing, neuro-vision systems, and neuro-control systems (book list).

    Dr. Gupta's current research interests are in the areas of neuro-vision systems, neuro-control systems, integration of fuzzy-neural systems, neuronal morphology of biological vision systems, intelligent and cognitive robotic systems, cognitive information, new paradigms in information processing, chaos in neural systems, and fuzzy-neural logic in law.  He is also developing some new architectures of computational neural networks and computational fuzzy neural networks for application to advanced robotics, aerospace, medical, industrial, and business systems and law.  His interest also lies in signal and image processing with applications to medical systems.

    Dr. Gupta was elected fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for his contributions to the theory of fuzzy sets and adaptive control systems and for the advancement on the diagnosis of cardiovascular disease.  He was elected fellow of the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE) for his contributions to the field of neuro-control and neuro-fuzzy systems.  He was also elected fellow of the International Fuzzy Systems Association (IFSA) for his contributions to fuzzy-neural computing systems.

    In 1998, Dr. Gupta was honored by the III- Kaufmann Prize and Gold Medal for his research in the field of fuzzy logic.  This Gold Medal was presented by the Foundation FEGI (Fundació per a l'Estudi de la Gestió en la Incertesa:  Fuzzy Management Research Foundation) and SIGEF (Sociedad Internacional de Gestión Economia:  Fuzzy, International Association for Fuzzy Set Management and Economy) in Reus, Spain.  In 1991, Dr. Gupta was the co-recipient of the Institute of Electrical Engineering Kelvin Premium.  He was elected as a visiting professor and a special advisor in the area of high technology to the European Centre for Peace and Development (ECPD), University for Peace, which was established by the United Nations.  In 1991, he was invited by the ECPD to visit and lecture at about five industrial and research centers in India.

    Dr. Gupta received his B.E. (Hons.) and M.E. degrees in electronics-communications engineering from the Birla Engineering College (now the Birla Institute of Technology & Science), Pilani, India, in 1961 and 1962, respectively.  As a commonwealth scholar, he received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Warwick, United Kingdom, in 1967 in adaptive control systems.  In the fall of 1998, for his extensive contributions in neuro-control, neuro-vision, and fuzzy-neural systems, Dr. Gupta was awarded an earned doctor of science (D.Sc.) degree by the University of Saskatchewan.

    Dr. Gupta is or has been on the editorial board of over fifteen journals in the field of fuzzy-neural and intelligent systems.  Also, he has participated in the initiation of some of these journals.  He has also served as a founding member of some of the international societies such as International Fuzzy Systems Association (IFSA), North American Fuzzy Information Processing Society (NAFIPS) and Canadian Fuzzy Information and Neural Society (CAN-FINS).
