The 13th CAA Symposium on Fault Detection, Supervision, and Safety for Technical Processes (CAA SAFEPROCESS 2023) will be held during Friday through Saturday, September 22-24, 2023, in Yibin International Conference Center.

CAA SAFEPROCESS 2023 is sponsored by the Professional Committee on Fault Diagnosis and Safety for Technical Processes, Chinese Association of Automation (CAA). It is organized by Sichuan University, Sichuan University of Science & Engineering and Artificial Intelligence Key Laboratory of Sichuan Province. It aims to bring together the international researchers of this field to discuss the latest findings and advances. It will feature plenary lectures, contributed and invited sessions, and poster sessions. The English paper of the symposium might be included in the IEEE Xplore library.

Yibin, a prefecture-level city under the jurisdiction of Sichuan Province, is known as "the first city of the Yangtze River, the wine capital of China and the bamboo capital of China". It is a famous national historical and cultural city, with 2,200 years of urban construction history, 4,000 years of Baijiu-making history and 3,000 years of tea planting history. Located in the junction of Yunnan, Guizhou and Sichuan provinces, has the junction of Jinsha River, Minjiang River and Yangtze River. The city has colorful Yangtze River culture, Baijiu culture, Bo Miao culture,  Nezha culture, Anti-Japanese War culture and folk customs culture. Yibin is not only the regional central city of the urban belt along the Yangtze River determined by the state, but also the regional central city of the upper reaches of the Yangtze River, a national comprehensive transportation hub, and the open hub gateway to the south of Sichuan Province. It has national AAAA tourist attractions such as the Bamboo Sea in southern Sichuan province and Lizhuang Ancient Town, including the hanging coffins of the Bo people, Xingwen Shihai, Laojun Mountain and other cultural landscapes.
We sincerely welcome our colleagues worldwide to join us for this symposium. We look forward to seeing you in Yibin for this exciting event!
