This document contains the slides to a presentation held at the 3rd ITPA Meeting on Steady State Operation and Energetic Particles. It covers the following topics:

1. Quick summary of early experiments on real-time control of the ITB temperature gradient
2. Technique for controlling the current and pressure profiles in high performance tokamak plasmas with ITB's: a technique which offers the potentiality of retaining the distributed character of the plasma parameter profiles.
3.First experiments using the simplest, lumped-parameter, version of this technique for the current profile:
3.1. Control of the q-profile with one actuator: LHCD
3.2. Control of the q-profile with three actuators: LHCD, NBI, ICRH
