Newcomers Reception 
This social event is organized for participants who registered to IEEE for the first time in 2022, or who attend CDC for the first time. This will be a friendly occasion for them to meet other participants freshly arrived in our scientific community, while enjoying some light refreshments! 

CSS Breakfast for Under-represented Students
This activity is aimed at building community for individuals who identify as under-represented in control. The program includes some speakers but most of the time will be devoted to informal interactions. This breakfast is open to students and postdocs who identify as under-represented in the control systems field, STEM, or the academic community. This may include, but is not limited to, students/postdocs who identify as being Black/African American, Hispanic, Indigenous, LGBTQ+, or as having a disability.
*While women are welcome, this event is aimed at those from other under-represented groups. Women are encouraged to attend the Women in Controls lunch, which provides a similar venue for community building.
