An overview is given of the papers presented at the 17th Joint Workshop on Electron Cyclotron Emission (ECE) and Electron Cyclotron Resonance Heating (ECRH). The meeting covered all aspects of the research field ranging from theory to enabling technologies. From the workshop, advanced control by electron cyclotron heating and current drive is emerging as probably the main application of ECRH in fusion devices. Large progress is reported from various experiments on real-time control applications. At the same time ECE is developing into a multi-dimensional plasma diagnostic taking advantage of new technological developments. The resulting multi-dimensional ECE data reveal exciting new details of the complicated plasma dynamics in fusion devices.
