You are invited to submit a proposal for the pre-congress workshops and tutorials which will inform participants about the state of the art in specific areas of interest to the IFAC community.
The congress will accept a limited number of papers based on extended abstracts, to encourage participation from industry and from colleagues outside the traditional academic control community. These abstracts will typically be two pages in length and will be subject to peer review. Authors will present in technical or interactive sessions but the papers will not appear in the congress proceedings.
