IFAC YouTube "History channel"

The IFAC YouTube channel, started at the beginning of 2015, is now featuring several videos of interest for our community, that may also help spread the knowledge about IFAC activities to a larger audience. The channel is readily accessible from the homepage of the IFAC website (

A special section, called “History channel, is intended to collect visual documents about the history of IFAC and the scientists that gave significant contributions to its birth and subsequent development. Recently, the History channel has been enriched with two precious documents. One is a recollection of the early days of IFAC performed by Percy Hammond and Derek Atherton. The second is a documentary on the life of Harold Chestnut, a pioneer in systems and control engineering and the first president of IFAC.

The readers are encouraged to suggest other appropriate materials that could be considered for publication on the channel. Suggestions should be directed to Paolo Bolzern (, who serves as IFAC Electronic Media Editor.
