New IFAC Major Medal created for Early Career Achievements

In its July 2015 Meeting the IFAC Council has approved the creation of a new major IFAC Medal, to recognize outstanding contributions of a young researcher or engineer to the domain of systems and control. It is directed towards candidates under the age of 40, and will be named after Manfred Thoma, a leading contributor to the field of control and to IFAC, and supporter of the careers of many young scientists. The new Medal will be awarded for the first time at the 2017 IFAC World Congress in Toulouse (F).
