IFAC Fellows
The first Fellows were elected at the IFAC World Congress in Prague in July 2005.
The Fellow Selection Committee (FSC) for the period 2014  2017 consists of:
Robert Bitmead (Chair), Christos Cassandras, Lei Guo, Davor Hrovat, Lucy Pao, Mustafa Khammash, WookHyun Kwon, Sigurd Skogestad, and Robert Tempo.
Starting from this triennium there is also a separate "Fellow Search Committee", chaired by Alberto Isidori and the following members: Tamer Basar, Eduardo Camacho, Tohru Katayama. This additional group was formed to help finding suitable canditates to nominate as Fellows.
