Carlos Canudas-de-Wit was the program chair of the IEEE Conference on Control Applications 2009, in Saint-Petersburg Russia. He participated to several concertation meetings in the CORDIS reseach program at the ITC-department in the EU. He also participated in the "International Workshop on the Impact of Control: Past, Present, and Future” at Berchtesgaden, Germany in Oct. 2009.(http://workshop-impact-control-2009.lsr.ei.tum.de/ ). The Workshop is being sponsored by the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) at the Technische Universität München, the IEEE Control Systems Society, and our FeedNetBAck EU project. This report will be available on the CSS and IAS Websites and we expect to publish a version in IEEE Control Systems Magazine. He was participated as evaluator (Dec. 2009) in the FP7 program "Factories of the Future": FP7-2010-NMP-ICT-FoF, and as reviewer of EU projects in the FP6 program on Embedded Systems and Control (June 2009).
