Dear Congress attendees,
The 20th IFAC World Congress ended on 14 July 2017. It has been a long, intense and exciting event to prepare and organize. While we are globally satisfied with the outcome, we acknowledge that some elements could have been better. But our satisfaction is mainly thanks to you the Congress delegates. Not only have you been many to register and attend the Congress, but also, by your kind and comprehensive attitude, you helped in making things go smoothly. Many thanks to you.
