The Registration Procedure is composed of the following steps.

These Registration Procedure steps are detailed below.
In case of difficulties encountered during registration please contact

Registration profile type

At first you should choose a registration profile type among the three following profiles:

  • Student registration profile (390€ fee before 15 April 2017 - 1 paper upload included - copy of student's card to be provided)
  • Application days registration profile (500€ fee - 1 paper upload included)

Then, you are invited to "Connect using your profile" or to "Create a new profile". These profiles (login and password) are for IFAC 2017 registration only. They are NOT related to your or other profiles. When connecting for the first time you hence should "Create a new profile".

The profile data will be stored to the system allowing to re-enter the system. This can allow to add registration items separately from the Congress registration itself, and eventually to pay these items with different bank cards. Additional items can be such as accompanying person registrations (200€ fee before 15 April 2017), papers to upload to the system, workshops and tutorials (to be announced early 2017), technical visits (to be announced early 2017), accommodation at university campus (to open early 2017), or lunches during the Congress days.

Validate registration fee

You are at this step invited to validate your registration fee which depends of your registration profile type and the current date. Reduced fees apply only before 15 April 2017.

Declare papers for upload

Starting from 11 April, this step of the procedure is removed. 10 April was the final and ultimate deadline for paper upload.

Papers will be included in the final program only if accepted in the program by the IPC (preliminary program to be announced end of February 2017) and if associated to a registration. Full registrations allow for 2 papers upload. Student and Application Days registrations allow for 1 paper upload. Additional paper upload can be purchased at the cost of 250€. Papers are limited in their number of pages (5 for Extended Abstracts, 6 for Regular Papers, 12 for Survey Papers). Additional pages may be added for Regular Papers (up to a total of 8 pages) and for Survey Papers (up to a total of 16 pages) at an additional cost of 80€ per page.

Paper upload is to be done in the web service. After payment, Congress authors shall receive the codes allowing them to upload papers in their invoice. Codes are valid only for a specific paper ID (submission number) and for a specified number of pages. Authors should be very careful when entering their paper data. Erroneous data will generate erroneous upload codes. After payment errors may be fixed only by declaring new papers (at the expense of additional paper fees).

Login/Password identification allows to re-enter the system. This feature enables to proceed with registration without declaring papers for upload and to re-connect later-on to declare papers.
