Founded in 1954, the IEEE CSS has been at the forefront of control systems theory and technology for over 65 years. Its focus is to promote scientific, technological, and educational advancements in the fields of automatic control, decision making, theory and applications, all over the world. Application areas include, and not limited to, aerospace systems, automotive systems, communication networks, cyber-physical systems, manufacturing, micro/nano systems, power grids, process control, robotics, smart communities, and systems and synthetic biology. Message From The Executive Committee CSS holds inclusivity, equity, and diversity as core values. Recent racial strife in the US, the outpouring of grief and justified anger in the US and beyond, remind us to remain steadfast in these core values more than ever. CSS strongly condemns systemic racism as well as any inequitable treatment of anyone, anywhere. We will continue to be guided by these core values and join hands with the science and engineering community at large and maintain our resolve to speak out and act against injustices and inequities of all kinds. CSS commits to conduct its operations always with this in mind. CSS has recently established the CSS Fund within the IEEE Foundation specifically to assist in activities of outreach and inclusion. We would welcome suggestions and proposals as how best we might achieve this.
