Invitation to Participate

Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 19th World Congress of the International Federation of Automatic Control, taking place in Cape Town, South Africa. The theme for the Congress is “Promoting automatic control for the benefit of humankind”, as encapsulated by the vision and mission of IFAC.

You will join delegates from across the globe at a gathering that offers us the opportunity to step beyond our regular networks and meet colleagues from around the world while we present, listen to and discuss the latest work in Automatic Control.

To date, the triennial congress has operated on two levels – to promote dialogue and debate within the profession, and to promote the development of the profession within the wider engineering and related communities. We hope to achieve both objectives at the 2014 congress by addressing all the topics covered by the IFAC Technical Board, and by providing delegates with opportunities to interact with funding agencies and potential industrial employers.

IFAC 2014 in Cape Town will provide the perfect environment in which to not only stretch yourself intellectually, but to develop as an academic or practitioner and extend the networks that will support you in your future career and research ventures.

Apart from an interesting and stimulating programme there will of course be time to explore beautiful Cape Town! Take the opportunity for shopping at the nearby Waterfront, a trip by cable car up Table Mountain, visit the world famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, or a visit to a winery for wine tasting. There is plenty to interest everyone.

I would like to invite you to register for the congress and take advantage of the opportunity to travel to South Africa and experience this beautiful country.

Yours sincerely,
Professor Ian Craig
President, International Federation of Automatic Control
