The IFAC TC 9.5 “Supplemental Ways for Improving International Stability – SWIIS” was one of the longest IFAC communities dating back to the 1981 World Congress in Kyoto. In 1983 Austria hosted the first IFAC SWIIS Workshop attracting a unique range of inter-disciplinary contributions. SWIIS expanded into an IFAC Technical Committee (TC 9.5) as a bridge between control scientists and automation engineers and various other disciplines with the common theme of improving human living conditions and explore contributions to a stable and sustainable planet. Whilst the “heartbeat” of TC 9.5 has remained, the scope has expanded as the TC grew and developed, and the world changed to the present status and perspective.This contribution starts with a short history of SWIIS and because of the changing scope the transformation to TECIS in 2011. This was necessary for including new actual topics. Finally an outlook in the future, emphasising new topics, will be given in this paper.
