All papers presented will be recorded as an IFAC Publication.

    Copyright of material presented at an IFAC meeting is held by IFAC. Authors will be sent a copyright transfer form. The IFAC Journals and, after these, IFAC affiliated journals have priority access to all contributions presented. However, if the author is not contacted by an editor of these journals within three months after the meeting, he/she is free to re-submit the material for publication elsewhere. In this case, the paper must carry a reference to the IFAC meeting where it was originally presented.
