Welcome to SAMDE 2021

2020 International Symposium on Automation, Mechanical and Design Engineering (SAMDE 2020), organized by the Hong Kong Society of Robotics and Automation (HKSRA), will be held on 26-28 December 2020 virtually.

SAMDE 2020 covers a wide range of research topics, spanning both theory and practice, and both systems and the interacting and interrelated entities that form these systems. Digitization, digitalization and sustainability are some of the keywords in the recent and upcoming research activities. Digitalized development and operation/use of sustainable products and manufacturing systems would result in improved global competitiveness, growth, and more sustainable products and production. Artificial intelligence, automated reasoning, human-robot collaborative interaction, sensors and autonomous sensor systems, cyber-physical control systems, generative design including topology optimization, advanced simulation and modelling, intelligent automation, smart materials, materials processing and factories, and circular economy are some of the important topics covered at SAMDE 2020.

A primary objective of SAMDE 2020 is to promote multi-/interdisciplinary international research and academic, technological and industrial collaboration. Dissemination of results, discussions and collaboration in an international environment promote both personal development and scientific progress. Welcome to the keynote and parallel sessions and the networking during SAMDE 2020.
