The 3 steps for submitting a contribution to the IFAC 2017 World Congress
Papers and all other proposals must be submitted electronically using the IFAC PaperCept conference manuscript management system:
When connected on this www.ifac.papercept.net Web page, scroll down to 'Conferences in 2017' and select 'Submit a contribution to IFAC WC 2017'.
When submitting a contribution to IFAC 2017 World Congress the contributor is first asked to choose among the types of submissions listed in the next table. The table summarizes the main characteristics of each submission type. See also the call for papers for detailed description of submission types.
Even if you were not personally invited to do so, you can submit contributions to open invited tracks. Have a look at the list of proposed open invited track topics. If you feel your contribution fits a topic, select 'open invited track paper' as submission type and use the track code at the second step of submission.

At the second step the contributor is asked to fill in a form that contains
- Title of the contribution
- The authors
- The theme (among the 9 IFAC technical areas)
- A list of keywords associated to the selected theme. See here the list of keywords classified by technical area and by technical committees. Evaluation will a priori be done by the technical committee associated to the 1st keyword.
- The category of presentation among Regular, Application, Demonstrator, History (see here about the categories)
- The abstract of the contribution
By default contributions to Open Invited Tracks are evaluated within the technical area chosen by the track organizer. In case of contributions to Open Invited Tracks that have a multi-area nature, the authors can suggest different keywords for evaluation. To do so they should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org specifying (a) their contribution identification number and the Open Invited Track code; (b) the ordered list of three keywords among those listed on the IFAC2017 keywords page. The IPC may then reassign the submission to the appropriate Technical Committee for the reviewing process.
At the third and final step of submission the contributor uploads his/her contribution that should fulfill the format constraints. All submissions must be written in English, and prepared according to IFAC format, see: www.ifac.papercept.net/conferences/support/support.php. Tools are provided for managing formatting issues.
At this third step the authors are allowed to upload additional documents. This is intended for submissions in the demonstrator category: if you intend to bring your demonstrator device to the World Congress, please provide an additional document describing the needed space and needed infrastructure.
