    Two IFAC (International Federation of Automatic Control) events were organized by the CCS Lab in Saint Petersburg (Anichkov Palace) on 29-31 Aug. 2007: 9th IFAC Workshop "Adaptation and Learning in Control and Signal Processing" - ALCOSP 2007 and the 3rd IFAC Workshop "Periodic Control Systems" - PSYCO 2007. The technical program included 136 regular talks (90 in ALCOSP'07 and 46 in PSYCO'07), 10 plenary talks and 22 posters. Both events were a success with 125 registered participants from 22 countries, including 40 from Russia, 22 from Japan, 12 from France. Details see at websites of ALCOSP'07 and PSYCO 2007.

    The 3rd International Conference "Physics and Control" (PhysCon 2007) took place on Sept. 3-7 in Potsdam, Germany. It was a success with 280 registered participants from 31 countries, including 81 from Germany, 65 from Russia, 19 from UK, 18 from Spain. Such an active participation of Russians is pleasant yet not surprising: this conference was a continuation of tradition of two previous ones (PhysCon 2003, PhysCon 2005) held in Saint Petersburg and organized by the CCS Lab. PhysCon 2007 was organized under auspice of the newly born International Physics And Control Society - IPACS.
