The history of SZTAKI is closely intertwined with IFAC as several former leaders of the Instititute held important positions in the organization. Accordingly, at this year's world congress, two former leaders who have passed away in the recent years were commemorated at the event: Tibor Vámos, who also held the position of President of IFAC for some time, and János Gertler, who was Life-long Advisor to IFAC.
