Automation, Control, and Robotics are closely interconnected fields that have been advancing together in recent years. Automation technologies allow for the efficient and accurate control of various systems and processes, while control techniques provide the means to regulate and optimize system performance. Robotics technology is becoming increasingly sophisticated and versatile, with applications ranging from industrial manufacturing to healthcare and beyond. The integration of these three fields is leading to new breakthroughs in areas such as intelligent control, autonomous robotics, and human-machine interaction.

We are pleased to announce that the 8th International Conference on Automation, Control, and Robots (ICACR 2024) will be held in Xiangyang, China from July 12-14, 2024. It's sponsored by Hubei University of Arts and Science, hosted by Computer School of Hubei University of Arts and Science. This conference will bring together experts from both academic and industrial fields to exchange ideas and practices. Professionals, experts, managers, and students from universities, research institutions, and companies are welcome to attend.

Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality original research and technical contributions for presentations and posters at the conference. ICACR 2024 provides a forum for researchers and practitioners involved in different but related domains to confront research results and discuss key problems. The scope of ICACR 2024 includes the research and development fields of collaboration technologies and their applications to sensing, automation, control, and robots. Application domains include, but are not limited to, intelligent control systems and optimization, signal processing, sensors, systems modeling and control, robotics and automation, industrial engineering, production and management, among others.
