July 9, 2002: Murata named UIC Distinguished Professor
Professor Murata is one of four professors (the only one from the College of Engineering) at the University of Illinois at Chicago who was selected to receive the honorific title of "UIC Distinguished Professorship" this year. The Distinguished Professor title was created to recognize and honor full professors who have made a significant impact upon their field through scholarship, creativity, and leadership. Professor Murata is a world authority on the theory and applications of Petri nets. He is the first recipient of the Carl Adam Petri Distinguished Technical Achievement Award. Dr. Murata's 1989 award-winning paper "Petri Nets: Properties, Analysis and Applications" published in the Proceedings of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, is one of the most highly referenced papers in the field of Petri nets.
