Dear Colleagues:


In 2011 IEEE Control Systems Society, with support from other sponsors,
published a report titled The Impact of Control Technology (Tariq Samad and
Anuradha Annaswamy, eds.).  This report is available free of charge at


A revised edition is now in preparation, with support from IEEE CSS and the
American Automatic Control Council (AACC).  This new report will consist
entirely of two-page flyers, in "Success Stories" and "Research Challenges"
sections.  These flyers were an especially popular feature of the original
report (see Parts 2 and 4).  The report will continue to be freely available
on the Web and we are also expecting to be able to have a print version
available for purchase.  The report editors anticipate publication by
year-end 2013 or early 2014.


Your contributions to the report are encouraged.  Please note the following:


.  "Success Stories" flyers should highlight practical successes of advanced
control technology.  Some documentation of societal/industrial benefit
should be included.  Simulations and laboratory demonstrations are not


.  "Research Challenges" flyers should highlight opportunities for future
societal impact through advances in control research.  These flyers should
convey the excitement of an emerging area rather than focusing primarily on
authors' own works.


The flyers are intended to exemplify the accomplishments and the promise of
our field, including to those not already immersed in it.  Thus the audience
is not solely control engineers and scientists.  Content should be prepared
accordingly.   You can review Parts 2 and 4 of the original for examples of
appropriate material.  


If you are interested, please contact the report editors, Tariq Samad and
Anuradha Annaswamy, at  <mailto:[log in to unmask]> [log in to unmask] and
<mailto:[log in to unmask]> [log in to unmask] immediately, who will communicate
further details including a template for draft submissions.  The final
layout will be done by a public relations and advertising agency that has
been contracted for producing the flyers.
