Proceedings of the 2018 3rd International Conference on Control, Automation and Artificial Intelligence (CAAI 2018)

We are very pleased to inform you that the conference of 2018 3rd International Conference on Control, Automation and Artificial Intelligence (CAAI2018) will take place in Beijing, China during August 26-27, 2018. CAAI2018 is the third conference about Control, Automation and Artificial Intelligence since the first CAAI has been held in Phuket, Thailand from August 23-24, 2015 and the second CAAI has been hosted in Sanya, China during June 25-26, 2017. Both of the previous conferences have been successfully indexed in CPCI-S!

With the success of previous conferences, CAAI2018 aims to continue to attract researchers and application developers from a wide range of Control Theory and Application, Automation Science and Engineering, Artificial Intelligence and Application, Robotics Science and Engineering, Computer Science and Software Engineering and other related areas to discuss and explore both theoretical research and its applications, providing a platform for academic exchange and related services for researchers from all over the world, and then to provide potential and feasible solutions to enhance the understanding and development of technologies, and the application of related fields.

To make a success of CAAI2018, we do our utmost to call for many excellent experts and scholars to support and help us complete the process of papers’ review because reviewers is significant to paper publications. And to our joy, we have the backing of lots of researchers and scholars in Control, Automation and Artificial Intelligence and related aspects. As for paper review, we adopt the double blind review to make the review result relatively fairer. On the basis of anonymity of authors’ and reviewers’ information, it is more disinterested for reviewers to evaluate a paper with no prejudice. Each paper is sent to at least 2 reviewers. In case of a paper causing a divergence between the 2 reviewers, a third reviewer decides the acceptance of the paper. We trust that it must be a wonderful communication platform for those who are leading experts and scholars in these related fields.

CAAI2018 has received about 196 papers until the submission deadline. After 30-days of reviewing, a PC e-meeting were held to validate the accepted papers for conference papers. At last, 59 papers were selected as regular papers, which were based on the reviewing comments of program committee, and the acceptance rate was at about 30.1%.

In this proceeding, the accepted papers are included in 4 chapters.

Chapter 1: Control, Automation and Mechanical Engineering
Chapter 2: Intelligent System Design and Application
Chapter 3: Intelligent Algorithm and Image Recognition Technology
Chapter 4: Intelligent Material Processing Technology and Applied Mechanics

It is a great honor for us to work with all the members of the CAAI2018 Conference, including committee members and chairs, the contributors and reviewers. And on behalf of all participants, we would like to express heartfelt thanks to the co-sponsor - Advanced Science and Industry Research Center, Hong Kong for supporting CAAI2018 and the Atlantis Press for publishing all these valuable and excellent papers. Looking forward to your next cooperation and the success of CAAI2018. We wish that CAAI2018 will give all of you a splendid academic feast on Control, Automation and Artificial Intelligence!
