It is with great satisfaction that the organizing committee invites all researchers in areas related to robotics, automation, optimization, and instrumentation, among others, related to the aspects of intelligent automation to the XVI Brazilian Symposium on Intelligent Automation (SBAI 2023).

In thirty years, the symposium has established itself as the main scientific event in intelligent automation in Latin America, with its first edition in 1993 in the city of Rio Claro in São Paulo, organized by the State University of São Paulo ( UNESP). Since this milestone, the event has gone through the following editions:

The congress will be held in an unprecedented way in the city of Manaus, the capital of the State of Amazonas, in October 2023. VIII Brazilian Congress of Automatics held in the distant year 1990 and based in Belém, capital of the State of Pará.

The event will take place in a face-to-face format under the organization of the Federal University of Amazonas (UFAM), in partnership with the University of the State of Amazonas (UEA) and the Federal Institute of Amazonas (IFAM), and will take place over four days with sessions techniques, international lectures, workshops, mini-courses, and a closing dinner. The main focus follows the precepts of previous editions, where works with a theoretical contribution of computational intelligence to the areas of Automation and Systems are equally desirable, as well as works with applications and development that deal with problems of interest in the real world.
