Automation, Robotics & Communications
for Industry 4.0/5.0 (ARCI' 2024):
4th IFSA Winter Conference

7-9 february 2024



The Global Industry 4.0 Market is valued at US $ 102.94 Billion in the year 2022 and is projected to reach a value of US $ 433.84 Billion by the year 2030. The Global Market is expected to grow exhibiting a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 19.70 % over the forecast period.

The Industry 4.0 / 5.0 is an integrated system, which consists of an automation tool, robotic control, communications and big data analytics. The increased adoption of industrial robots is one of the main driving factor of this market, while the data risks associated with integration of advanced technologies are the restraining factors. Lack of knowledge about the benefits and uses of connected devices, sensors, and analytical applications in the production and manufacturing sector limits market expansion.

There are several conferences on automation, robotics, communications and data analysis, but they are not meet the Industry 5.0 challenges. The series of annual IFSA's Winter ARCI conferences have been launched to fill-in this gap and provide a forum for open discussion of state-of-the-art technologies related to all, mentioned above, components of Industry 5.0. The ARCI' 2024 conference is organized by the IFSA - one of the major professional, non-profit association serving for sensor industry and academy since 1999.

The ARCI' 2024 conference will incorporate main fields covering research and development in a broaden range in automation, robotics, communication and data analyses, and united by the Industry 5.0 challenges. However it will be not a conference only about the future concepts and new visions. It will be also to discuss how to adopt the current R&D results for Industry 4.0 and to customize products under the conditions of highly flexible (mass-) production.

The previous ARCI’ 2024 conferences have attracted many researchers and practitioners in the related fields, from around the world. The purpose of ARCI' 2024 is bring together leading international researchers, developers and practitioners to attain synergetic exchanges of ideas and practices. The conference will offer plenary and invited talks, contributed oral and poster presentations, special sessions, industry tracks, panel discussions, tutorials and exhibition of commercial products. Social and cultural events will also take place to foster networking among the participants in a friendly manner.​ We trust that you will find the ARCI 2024 conference professionally rewarding and stimulating as well as enjoyable. Welcome to ARCI' 2024 !
