The International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Applications (ICAIA 2020) provides an international forum for the presentation of original research findings, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative, practical development experiences in different fields of engineering. The conference draws researchers and application developers from wide areas of artificial intelligence and associated applications related to almost all branches of engineering and technology. This conference was conceived after analysing the critical requirements and applications based on Artificial Neural networks, Fuzzy systems, Computational Optimization technologies and Machine learning. The aim of this conference is to promote translation of basic research into applied investigation and convert applied investigation into practice. This conference will also create awareness about the importance of basic scientific research in different fields matching with the current trends. The conference will provide the flavour of keynote lectures by eminent speakers from different areas & panel discussion by industry people.
