The Industry 4.0 holds a lot of potentials and is expected to register a substantial growth in the near future. According to the modern market study, the global Industry 4.0 market is projected to grow from US $ 116.14 billion in 2021 to US $ 337.10 billion in 2028 at the CAGR of 16.4 % in the 2021-2028 period.

The Industry 4.0 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.

There are several conferences on automation, robotics, communications and data analysis, but they are not meet the Industry 4.0 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 4.0. The ARCI' 2022 conference is organized by the IFSA - one of the major professional, non-profit association serving for sensor industry and academy more than 20 years.

The ARCI' 2022 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 4.0 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’ 2021 conferences have attracted many researchers and practitioners in the related fields, from around the world. The purpose of ARCI' 2022 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 2022 conference professionally rewarding and stimulating as well as enjoyable. Welcome to ARCI' 2022 !
