Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the increased integration of advances in robotics and automatons, sensors, and high-speed computing, the AI and manufacturing industries are entering a period of substantial innovation and change. Over the past few decades, AI has played a vital role in the manufacturing industry, from big data to full automation. However, in today’s complex, competitive, and dynamic external environment, manufacturing in many countries is facing huge bottlenecks and challenges to further development.

The FCPAE2021 and 3rd International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Manufacturing (AIAM2021) aims to bring together researchers and scientists from artificial intelligence and advanced manufacturing, as well as researchers from various application areas to discuss problems and solutions in the area, identify new issues, and shape future directions for research.

This Special Issue will focus on introducing a new generation of intelligent manufacturing systems and technologies and their applications, such as AI systems; smart industrial Internet of Things; machine learning and AI for intelligent manufacturing; smart factory and logistics; manufacturing processes and management; sustainable, flexible, virtual, digital manufacturing; and other related topics.

We invite you and your colleagues to submit a contribution in the form of an original scientific research article for this Special Issue. We would also like to thank the presenters and speakers in advance for your attendance to this conference and look forward to a stimulating discussion.

The conference AIAM2021 will be held in Manchester, UK between 23 and 25 October 2021.
