A new years message from the IFAC president

Dear IFAC Social media followers, Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Best wishes to you and your loved ones for the New Year. Our wish is that you will enjoy 2017 in good health, and that you will find it peaceful, prosperous and rewarding.

The social media platforms of IFAC are steadily gaining followers and reaching new audiences. It is great to count you among IFAC social media followers and I wish to express my sincere thanks for your continued support and your important contribution to the activities of IFAC

I warmly encourage you and encourage the IFAC Technical Committees to support the IFAC Social Media Strategy by following and retweeting/sharing the IFAC blog and participating in the discussions at the IFAC Twitter and Facebook accounts. Interested blog contributors are kindly invited to contact IFAC Social Media Liaison Jakob Stoustrup at jakob@es.aau.dk

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.

With best wishes,

Janan Zaytoon

IFAC President


Introducing the IFAC blog

Welcome to the blog of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC)!

Founded in Paris in 1957, IFAC is the worldwide organization tasked with promoting the science and technology of automatic control in all systems, whether for example, engineering, physical, biological, social or economic, in both theory and application. IFAC is also concerned with the impact of control technology on society.

With this blog, IFAC wishes to reach out to a global community and establish a forum for dialog between, on one side, leading experts within the IFAC domain and, on the other side, whoever wishes to participate in the discussion of how IFAC technology is going to shape the future of our societies.

IFAC is organized in a number of Technical Committees (TCs), each with a special focus on a subtopic within the general IFAC domain. Members of the TCs will take turn in writing the entries of this blog. The discussion we hope to stimulate will take place in selected social media, as you will be able to follow from the links provided with each blog entry.

We welcome both contributors from the IFAC Technical Committees and from our global community, hoping for a vast number of mutually inspirational discussions.

Jakob Stoustrup
IFAC Social Media Liaison
