IFACx labeled conferences 2024

IFAC co-sponsorship “light” for NMOs: IFACx: This service allows IFAC NMOs to give an IFAC label to some domestic technical events organized under their supervision.

Each NMO can request the IFACx COUNTRY/REGION label for at most 2 domestic events. These may typically be a domestic Conference + one other event such as a summer school, a Webinar series, etc.
The labeled events are not bound to be held in English. IFAC has no financial liability with respect to these events. The technical and scientific quality is the responsibility of the NMO, without any verification by IFAC. The events should be well aligned with IFAC ́s mission of promoting automatic control, and
respectful of IFAC’s code of conduct www.ifac-control.org/about.

Application Document:
In a single document, the NMO should provide for each event:
- Name of the event, location, dates
- Type of event: Conference, School, etc.
- Website (will be used by IFAC to promote the event)
- Short description (typically 1 or 2 sentences)

Validation by IFAC:
All submitted requests shall receive the approval of the Technical Board and Conference Board Chairs.
Approval ensures advertisement of the event in the IFAC channels (website, newsletter, social media etc.)
and gives the right to use the "IFACx COUNTRY/REGION" logo.
