Sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, the 16th event of the ICIA conference series will be held from July 18 to July 21, 2019 in Dali, Yunnan, China. Dali is situated in the transition area between the dramatic valleys of the eastern Tibetan Plateau and the distinctive mountains of the western Yungui Plateau. The Dali city surrounds the Erhai Lake between the Cang Mountains to the west and the Mount Jizu to the east. The Dali Old Town is situated on a fertile plain between the Cang Range and Erhai. This plain has traditionally been settled by the Bai and Yi minorities. The natural beauty of the Cang Range and Erhai Lake is breathtakingly astounding. The ICIA 2019 conference promises to offer the participants a great experience with excellent technical and social programs. High quality manuscripts reporting the original research results and innovations in all aspects of information, automation, artificial intelligence, robotics, image processing, computer vision, DSP, BME and related areas as well as their applications are invited.
