    The 2002 IFAC Congress in Barcelona (B’02) was the first Congress in the new millennium, and thus it offered an unique opportunity for IFAC Technical Committees to plan for their future. Each Coordinating Committee within IFAC was asked to prepare a milestone report that summarized past accomplishments and future challenges. The milestone report was organized around 6 questions that are given below in the manuscript. For Area 7, industrial applications, the future growth areas that were identified and which are discussed in the paper are: information technology, environmental applications, new sensor technologies, genomics, and mechatronics.
