    Exhibition and learning tools for Educational purposes in Control sciences


    Abstract: This demonstrator session is focused on proposal of two kinds. First, an exhibition of educational devices in order to promote the excellence of colleagues involved in learning process of control concepts. Second, presentations about new pedagogical tools and methodologies relying on the use of digital support in the control domain. The idea is to highlight the future applicative trends of automation and control teaching in academia or for professional degrees. A specific aspect is related to virtual and remote labs in control.

    Detailed description:

    The scope for this demonstrator session concerns the IFAC technical committee TC 9.4 (Control education) from the CC 9 cluster (social system) and is supported by the Co4AIR European project (developed by members the 3 TCs of the CC 3). It is focused on learning tools presentation and exhibition of education devices related to:

    • University education and continuing education issues in control engineering.
    • Methodologies for improving the theory, practice and accessibility of control systems education.
    • Control engineering laboratories (based on low-cost technologies), experiments, computer aided design, distance and virtual education technologies, e-learning, and internet based teaching technologies. Cooperation and technology transfer between academia and industry.


    The demonstrators session is meant to bring teachers, researchers and industrial partners together to share results, attractive challenges, network and feedback based on teaching practice. Organizers aim to provide a lively session to get fruitful exchanges and proposals for future collaborative research.

    Academic researchers and lecturers in control, R&D specialists in instrumentation, control and industrial automation, and practicing control engineers from a variety of industrial sectors are invited to submit their work.


    For example the following questions could be highlighted:

    • How to evaluate the effect of demonstrator on the learning process?
    • How to bring academia and industry together to facilitate and develop learning experiences which attract students to control engineering?
    • How to use a demonstrator in order to promote control with its cross-boundary nature as a field that spans science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)?
    • How to adopt and promote Internet-based methodologies for teaching control engineering?
    • How to develop a demonstrator in order to close the gap between control education practice and control engineering practice?


    Topics of interest include but are not confined to:

    • Teaching aids for control engineering
    • Virtual and remote labs, virtual reality in control education, serious game
    • University-industry co-operation in control engineering education
    • International programs in control engineering education
    • Teacher and student exchange programs between control labs
    • Embedded systems
    • Tele-operation
    • Distributed pedagogical agents and smart devices
    • Problem/Project/Challenge-based learning
    • Real case studies





    The target applications could be focus on transport, smart factory, robotics but not restricted to. If you intend to bring your demonstrator device to the world congress in Berlin, please provide an additional document describing the needed space and needed infrastructure.


    The French association of teachers in automatic control (club EEA) representative, based on International Demonstrator Paper Prize Selection Committee recommendation, will deliver a special “best demonstrator for education” award.
