Following the advice and guidelines from healthcare officials and local authorities, ICCAR 2021 will now be held virtually on April 23-26, 2021. Accepted papers will be published as scheduled. Furthermore, registration fees have been reduced. 

On the theoretical side, this conference features papers focusing on intelligent systems engineering, distributed intelligence systems, multi-level systems, intelligent control, multi-robot systems, cooperation and coordination of unmanned vehicle systems, etc. On the application side, it emphasizes autonomous systems, industrial robotic systems, multi-robot systems, aerial vehicles, underwater robots and sensor-based control.

For the first time ever, ICCAR affords the delegates unparalleled opportunities to interact and network with qualified professionals from throughout the world.

ICCAR wishes to encourage academic excellence for young people in this field. Therefore, the organizing committee initiated several awards to raise the importance of academic achievement in our future professionals.
