Micky Rakotondrabe graduated from the Institut Catholique des Arts et Métiers (ICAM engineering school, Lille France) in 2002, obtained the MSc on Control Systems from the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées (INSA, Lyon France) in 2003 and the PhD on Control Systems from the University of Franche-Comté at Besançon (UFC Besançon France) in 2006. His PhD research was led at FEMTO-ST Institute, Besançon France. He was assistant professor at UFC University and FEMTO-ST Institute in 2006-2007. Since sept 2007, he is associate professor at the same University and Institute. His research fields concern the design, modeling, signal estimation and control techniques for piezoelectric actuators in general and for microsystems.

Micky Rakotondrabe was the UFC-best phd thesis finalist; and obtained the ICARCV-2006 best paper award finalist, the CASE-2011 best application paper award finalist and the Romanian-Scientific-Activity-Award (shared with a Romanian colleague) in november 2011. He holds the French Excellence-Activities-Award (PES) since October 2011. Micky Rakotondrabe participated to the control of the French-team mobile microrobot that holds the IEEE-NIST Mobile Microrobot International Challenge Awards several times (1st prize on speed in 2010, in 2011 and in 2012). In july 2011, Micky Rakotondrabe obtained a CNRS-delegation award for one year (2011-2012). In 2013, the paper 'Complete open loop control of hysteretic, creeped and oscillating piezoelectric cantilever', was among the 5 most cited papers of the IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering of the year.

Micky Rakotondrabe is co-inventor of 3 patents, and co-editor of the book "Signal measurement and estimation techniques issues in the micro/nano world", edited book, Springer - Verlag, ISBN 978-1-4419-9945-0, August 2011, and editor of the book "Smart materials-based actuators at the micro/nano-scale: characterization, control and applications", edited book, Springer - Verlag, New York, ISBN 978-1-4614-6683-3, april 2013. He has organized several workshops and tutorials on control and on signal estimation in systems working at the microscale: at IEEE-ICRA-2009 (Kobé, Japan), IEEE-ICRA-2010 (Anchorage Alaska USA), IEEE-ICRA-2011 (Shanghai China), IEEE-CASE-2011 (Triesta Italy) and IEEE/ASME-AIM-2014 (Besançon France). He was visiting professor at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA, 1month, November 2011) where he has held at the same time a guest lecturer position on MicroRobots Control, and visiting researcher at the University of Newcastle Australia (a quarter, 2012).

Micky Rakotondrabe is an active member of the IEEE-RAS Technical Committee on Micro/Nano Robotics and Automation. He was awarded the national ANR emerging projects grant for research-to-industry transfer (ANR-MyMeSyS project) in 2011 and the national ANR young investigator award (ANR-C-MUMS project) in 2012.

Focused Session on "Hysteresis in Smart Mechatronic Systems: Modeling, Identification, and Control"
(IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics)

The IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics invites papers for a special section on “Hysteresis in Modern Mechatronic Systems: Modeling, Identification, and Control” to present developments in the area of hysteresis in smart mechatronic systems and to alleviate the difficulties associated with hysteresis nonlinearity in new smart mechatronic systems. The objective is to investigate new techniques for high performance smart mechatronic systems with consideration of hysteresis effects. This section will provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to exchange their most recent accomplishments and challenges in the area of modeling and compensation of hysteresis nonlinearity in smart mechatronic systems. It is expected that this issue will bring together the current advances in this area that could encourage future research directions in this field. Contributions from industry are encouraged, and both theoretical and experimental works are welcome. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

- Developments in hysteresis models for mechatronic systems
- Identification techniques for hysteresis models
- Developments in compensation schemes for hysteresis
- Limit cycles in systems with hysteresis
- Signals estimation/observation in systems with hysteresis
- Hysteresis in smart materials-based mechatronic systems
- Hysteresis in ferromagnetic and ferroelectric actuators and sensors
- Hysteresis in micromechatronic systems
- Hysteresis in pneumatic actuators
- Hysteresis in sensors
- Hysteresis in systems with friction
- Hysteresis in thermal and energy systems
- Hysteresis in electronic/electrical circuits and systems
- Hysteresis in robotic systems
- Hysteresis in mechanical systems with backlash
