President's Message

Welcome to the American Automatic Control Council (AACC). Automatic control systems have become far more pervasive today than any time in the history of humanity, and is nearly everywhere, including automobiles, aircraft, seacraft, electric grids, the internet, smart phones, personal digital assistants, fitness trackers, laptops, appliances, manufacturing processes, biomedical robots, vacuum cleaners, and lawn mowers. Control engineers design, analyze, and implement the automatic control systems that empower these technologies to save energy, increase performance, and have more capabilities. Control systems researchers and leading industrial practitioners develop increasingly powerful control systems theory, algorithms, and technologies that enable the design of automatic control systems for increasingly sophisticated systems. Our mission is promote communication and cooperation among the various segments of the automatic control profession.
