The IFAC MIM ‘2013 Symposium is the next one in the series of IFAC events on Manufacturing Modelling, Management, and Control, earlier have being organized as workshops, with the previous one having held in Budapest, Hungary in 2007. The present event, MIM ‘2013 is thought as a new step in developing MIM’s traditions, scopes, and aims. The IFAC MIM ‘2013 Symposium is sponsored by IFAC 5.2 Technical Committee and co-sponsored by a number of IFAC committees as well as other scientific societies under the organizational support of the V.A. Trapeznikov Institute of Control Sciences of the Russian Academy of Sciences as a host organization, that is known as a leading Russian institution in the branch of control sciences and an organizer of many considerable scientific events, among which the very successful IFAC INCOM ‘09 Symposium takes a specific and memorable place.

A unique attractive feature of the MIM ‘2013 Symposium is its location and the month of year, Saint Petersburg and June. A world-famous city, founded in 1703 by the first Russian Imperator Peter the Great, Saint Petersburg will present you an incredible atmosphere of the bewitching White Nights, rivers, channels, bridges, and inimitable architecture that will forever stay with you. MIM ‘2013 sessions will take place in the main building of the Saint Petersburg State University, the historical building of the Twelve Collegia, the government of Russia of the Peter the Great. This Petrine era, Petrine Baroque building was designed by Domenico Trezzini and Theodor Schwertfeger and built from 1722 to 1744 at an embankment of the Neva river at the historical center of Saint Petersburg, providing at present complete technological facilities for the organization of large scientific forums.

And, of course, the MIM ‘2013 Social Program will completely correspond to the meaningful of the event, the city, and the time of year. In spite of its resplendence, the Social Program may nevertheless be described in few words: the Kingdom of Water and Architecture.
