The Scientific and Technical Conference automation “Automation – News and Perspectives” has been organized by the Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements PIAP since 1997. This conference has entered the calendar of the most important national scientific and technical events in the field of automation, robotics and measuring technology.
Unlike other conferences, automation is organized annually and always is held simultaneously with the International Automation and Measurement Fair AUTOMATICON, also co-organized by the PIAP Institute. The conference is attended by participants from various backgrounds – scientific organisations and enterprises, who present theoretical achievements and innovative practical solutions. It provides a forum for exchanging experiences in the field of practical applications of automation and robotics as well as measuring devices and systems.
The conference is held under the scientific patronage of the Automation and Robotics Committee of the Polish Academy of Sciences, and scientific and technical patronage of the Polish Society for Measurement, Automatic Control and Robotics POLSPAR.
The Program Committee composed of over 20 scientists from leading academic centres and scientific organisations and institutions ensures high scientific excellence of presented papers. The submission and review of papers and communication with authors and reviewers is managed through an EasyChair online publication management system, which guarantees the so-called double blind reviewing of papers.
It should be noted that organizers of the automation conference regularly invite as speakers authors of the best doctoral and diploma theses – master’s and engineer’s, awarded and honoured in the Young & Innovative competition. This competition has been organized since 2008 by the Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements PIAP and concerns innovative solutions in the field of automation, robotics and measurements.
