Welcome to AIAIM2019

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the China-Qatar International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Applications to Intelligent Manufacturing (AIAIM2019) which will be held in Doha, Qatar during January 1-4, 2019.

AIAIM2019 (Call for Paper) aims to provide a high-level international forum for scientists, engineers, and educators to present the state of the art of research and applications in artificial intelligence, especially the applications to intelligent manufacturing. The conference will feature plenary speeches given by world renowned scholars, regular sessions with broad coverage, and special sessions focusing on popular topics. The proceedings of AIAIM2019 will be submitted for inclusion into the IEEE Xplore Database which is indexed by EI Compendex.

AIAIM2019 is sponsored by Texas A&M University at Qatar, Doha, Qatar and Northeastern University, Shenyang, China, technically sponsored by IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society. We strongly believe that this conference will advance Qatar's culture of research and development, promote the collaborations between researchers and scholars from Qatar and other countries, especially from China.

Small in size, Qatar is enormous in value. It has achieved within decades what other countries have taken centuries to accomplish. It highly values education, especial higher education. It aims to become one of the world's strongest knowledge societies. Its citizens embrace the future with unswerving optimism and enviable potential. Hospitable, generous, and kind, Qataris make guests feel at home.

Looking forward to seeing you at AIAIM2019 and wish you have wonderful time in Qatar!
