Proceedings of DAAAM Symposiums on Intelligent Manufacturing & Automation

DAAAM International Symposiums focus on the five-fold traditional objectives: the presentation of the most recent high-quality results, support of development of young scientists and researchers, organization of international doctoral school, inauguration of new members of Central European Branch of International Academy of Engineering and the provision of the necessary setting for stimulating discussions, brainstorming and networking among European and international researchers coming both from the academia, government agencies and industry.

DAAAM International Symposiums have been established as the leading Central European conference devoted to the cutting-edge advancements in the field of modern production and automation. The Symposium provides an international forum for engineers, scientists and industrial managers to present and discuss the current status and impact of advanced manufacturing and automation. The international series of Symposium was initiated by the first meeting in Vienna (1990) and continued in Strbske Pleso (1991), Budapest (1992), Brno (1993), Maribor (1994), Cracow (1995), Vienna (1996), Dubrovnik (1997), Cluj – Napoca (1998), Vienna (1999), Opatija (2000), Jena (2001), Vienna (2002), Sarajevo (2003), Vienna (2004), Opatija (2005), Vienna (2006), Zadar (2007), Trnava (2008), Vienna (2009), Zadar (2010), Vienna (2011), Zadar (2012), Zadar (2013), Vienna (2014), Zadar (2015), Mostar (2016), Zadar (2017), Zadar (2018).

Regular organization of the annual Symposium is one of the central activities of the DAAAM International association. The association was founded on 5. November 1990 in Vienna during a meeting organised by Professor B. Katalinic in order to celebrate the 175 Years of Vienna University of Technology. The main idea of the association was to establish a network for a new kind of international scientific and academic cooperation in the fields of intelligent manufacturing and automation. Our primary focus is on: all aspects of production of technical products made out of parts and corresponding automation and knowledge, trans-disciplinary application of methods and all kinds of education.
