The first IEEE CSS Video Clip Contest 2014 was organized recently. Everybody from within and from outside the controls community was invited to participate. Participants were asked to prepare a video clip on a subject related to control theory or automatic control. The video could focus on a particular topic or on the ﬁeld in general, but was required to have the potential to promote the ﬁeld. After the submission deadline the winners of the IEEE CSS Video Clip Contest 2014 were determined by the jury and officially announced during the CSS Video Clip Contest Awards ceremony that was held during the 2014 IEEE Multi-Conference on Systems and Control (MSC 2014) in Antibes, France, on Thursday, October 9, 2014.
All together 53 interesting video clips of high quality had been submitted from different groups in 19 countries.
The winner is Automation (1st place) by F. Fontanive, R. Vignali, A. Falsone. G. Manganini, D. Caporale, S. R. Cominesi, P. Panizza, L. Deori, Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria, Politecnico di Milano
