The Organizing Committee has the pleasure of inviting you to participate in the International Conference on Automation, Quality and Testing, Robotics, AQTR 2016 (THETA 20), which will be held in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, on May 19-21 2016. The conference follows the tradition of the 19 automation and testing-related scientific events, organized in Cluj-Napoca since 1981 under the name THETA/AQTR.


AQTR 2016 is an international forum for researchers in the field of automation, quality, testing and robotics. It will bring together researchers, equipment manufacturers, software developers and end-users to discuss the current trends and future directions of control and testing technologies and their industrial and social applications in the private and the public sectors. Active participation of students and graduate students is strongly encouraged.


Selected papers will be included in IEEE Xplore and submitted for ISI indexing (the previous edition was indexed in ISI Web of Science).
