On Monday, August 22, the number of submitted contributions to IFAC 2017 World Congress has risen over one hundred. There is still more than two months left before deadline (see call for papers) and this figure is encouraging. At this stage, two-thirds of the contributions are Open Invited Tracks (see here the list of submitted tracks). It is a great success for this new type that seems to do more than replace the usual Invited Session type (5 submitted sessions until now).
Concerning the topics, the coordinating committee on Design Methods is leading with one-third of all submitted contributed papers. Coordinating committee on Power and Process systems is also going quite well.
