Welcome to ACE2022

The IFAC Symposium on Advances in Control Education 2022 will be held in Hamburg Bergedorf, Germany, on 24-27 July 2022!

We are pleased to have finalised the reviews of all submitted papers and extended abstract! Information concerning acceptance and rejection of the submitted works was sent to the authors on 22 March 2022.

Registration is now open! Please see the registration side for details.

ACE2022 brings together control engineering academics from all disciplines. It combines the research areas of education with the subject of control engineering. The conference showcases state-of-the art online tools for education, benchmarking problems and investigative studies on teaching control engineering. The pandemic has affected the way control is taught around the globe and an increased interest in the discipline of education should follow.

The 13th Symposium on Advances in Control Education, ACE 2022, 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 educational tool demonstrations.

See the call for papers for details.
