Abstract

The 40th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control was held in Orlando, Florida, USA, T during December. Even control engineering conferences are not immune from world events and there was a notable fall in attendance, in addition to a marked increase in security a t US airports. One of the high points of the conference was the award ceremony, which was separated from the conference banquet on this occasion. The idea of having an award ceremony in the 45 minutes before the banquet seemed to work well. The distinguished member award was presented to Pradeep Misra by Prof. Michel Gevers and this was recognition of his considerable service to the Society The George S. Axelby Outstanding Paper Award was presented by Mark Spong to George Barrett and Stephane Lafortune, for a paper entitled 'Decentralised supervisory control with communicating controllers, published in the IEEE Transactions in September 2030
