IFAC's Technical Committees (TCs) are responsible for the technical areas covered by IFAC, which are specialized topics in control engineering. The technical areas are placed into nine groups, called Coordinating Committees (CCs) where each technical area within a CC coincides with a TC. The scope of each technical area can be viewed here.
The tasks of the CCs and TCs include promoting interest in emerging control subfields, assuming responsibility for technical meetings (or for series of such), providing for cooperation among specialists of their particular field, establishing contacts with other international organizations, publication of reports on selected topics, etc.
The CCs, the list of technical areas, the number of the respective TC and the Chair of the committee responsible for the activities are shown below. Each TC has its own mini-website where a complete list of members, news and event details relevant to the TC can be found.
