The submission of final papers to IFAC 2017 World Congress is now over. The PaperCept submission site for final manuscript upload has closed as announced. The deadline had been extended twice, a first time from 31 March to 7 April, and then to 10 April. The Program Chairs are now finalizing the detailed schedule of the 400 sessions and will not accept any late submission except if the authors can provide rapidly a very convincing reason for not having been able to meet the deadline.
Taking into account the temporary breakdown of the registration system in the last night before submission deadline of 7 April, the Registration Team in coordination with the IPC Chairs have reopened PaperCept for final paper upload. It will remain open until Monday 10 April at night.
Our sincere apologies for those who were doing their registration and uploading papers at the last minute. We recommend them to register without delay.
IFAC 2017 General Chair
The registration system was out of order from 3:16 till 9:57 local time (Toulouse, France) on Saturday 8 April. We are aware that it went down some hours before the deadline for submitting the final versions of the papers (7 April 23:59 time of PaperCept). This has prevented some of you to register and upload papers at last minute. Some solution will be sought in the close future. Meanwhile those who did not register are invited to do so in order to get their upload codes and be ready for paper uploading.
Dear congress attendees, the University Campus restaurant has limited capacities. It appears that these capacities have been attained today, 3 April 2017. This additional item in the registration can therefore no more be selected.
Other lunch possibilities will be available: see the lunches dedicated page. We will also contact the University Campus Restaurant to consider if the capacity of the restaurant could be increased. If it is so, the item will be re-opened on the registration web site.
The registration team is working hard in answering the questions and issues that some of you have. The fact that about 3000 persons register in less than 2 weeks time makes the situation critical. So please be patient and avoid solicitations that could find answers in the Congress web pages.
