I take great pleasure in inviting you to attend the 20th IFAC World Congress which will be held in Toulouse, France in July 2017. Everything is on track for what promises to be a highly rewarding, memorable and enjoyable event. I am happy to inform you that the IPC has received more than 4200 submissions and I look forward to meeting you all in Toulouse, France at the flagship event of our Federation.
