CASE 2020

2020 IEEE 16th International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering

August 20-21, 2020, Hong Kong

The 2020 IEEE International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (CASE) will be held on 20-21 August 2020 in Hong Kong. The IEEE CASE is the flagship automation conference of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society and constitutes the primary forum for cross-industry and multidisciplinary research in automation. Its goal is to provide a broad coverage and dissemination of foundational research in automation among researchers, academics, and practitioners. The theme of the conference is Automation Analytics.

Special Online Track - Roles of Automation Science and Engineering in Fighting COVID-19

we would like to encourage colleagues to contribute to discussions and presentations about the roles of Automation Science and Engineering in fighting COVID-19. Governments, industries, Universities and NGOs have worked together on innovative solutions and technologies. For example

  • we have seen the operations of disinfection robots and drones,
  • we have seen the setting up of face mask production lines in one week,
  • we have seen the uses of industrial wearables in enforcing social distancing and quarantine policies,
  • we have seen the uses of AI and data science in tracing and track of disease transmission in public areas such as restaurants, buses and trains,
  • we have seen the rapid deployment of containerized hospitals and care centers within two weeks,
  • we have played mixed (virtual and augmented) reality for physical and mental fitness of COVID patients in isolation and people under mandatory quarantine.
  • and so on so forth.

  • These have been the great efforts involving professionals from the Automation Science and Engineering community. The organizing team will set up a special online track and welcomes discussions, presentations and reports on these efforts that you have been involved in and/or have seen around you.
