The 4th International Conference on Applied Automation and Industrial Diagnostics, ICAAID 2020, will be held in Hail, Saudi Arabia from 27 to 29 October 2020. The conference is organised by the College of Engineering of Hail University in collaboration with the Applied Automation and Industrial Diagnostics Laboratory LAADI, University of DJELFA, Algeria. ICAAID 2020 focuses on both industrial Automation systems applications and theory largely covering the topics of artificial intelligence, modelling, control, diagnosis and reliability engineering in application areas, for improving the reliability of materials and devices in industrial systems. The main aim of the ICAAID 2020 is to bring together all potential participants: from industry, experts, researchers, academics, manufacturers and suppliers of several countries to review the latest developments that are achieved in these areas and to exchange research ideas to explore current challenges in modelling, control, diagnosis and reliability engineering from theoretical and application point of views.
