IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS) is an organizational unit of the IEEE. It was founded in 1954 and is dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practice of systems and control in engineering.

Control is ubiquitous. Control is a fundamental discipline that underlies all our lives. We live our everyday lives surrounded by all sorts of control systems, and we are for the most part, unaware of them. Anything that moves, changes in time, has dynamics and in order that such dynamics function properly, it needs control. Control governs, or regulates, how the system behaves or functions. A helicopter would immediately fall once its controller stops functioning. Our body is a huge collection of control systems: cells, tissues, organs all function according to certain biological, chemical, or physical rules, and they are controlled by such rules. Without control our heart would malfunction or even cease to work, and we would stop living.

The IEEE Control Systems Society aims at clarifying its far-reaching power, pursuing various new and exciting applications, and exploring yet unknown new methodologies that contribute to the advancement of human lives.
