Reflections from the Symposium and Thanks to All

IFAC-ACE 2019 

The 2019 IFAC Advances in Control Education (ACE) Symposium will be held at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown Hotel in the heart of the center in Philadelphia, PA, USA on July 7-9, 2019 in conjunction with ACC2019: http://acc2019.a2c2.org

The 12th Symposium on Advances in Control Education, ACE 2019, is an international forum on recent developments and advances in control education. Academic researchers and lecturers in control, R&D specialists in instrumentation, control and industrial automation, and practicing control engineers from a variety of industrial sectors will find it especially rewarding. As in earlier symposia, the program will include plenary lectures, technical sessions, interactive and panel sessions, and software presentations.

The goal of the symposium is to bring together experts from the field of control and education that will contribute to:

  • Demonstrating, discussing, evaluating and linking existing resources in the control education area
