Welcome to World Automation Congress (WAC)!

WAC is an international non-profit technical meeting dedicated to the dissemination of latest information among all nations of the world. It has always prided itself on helping scientists and professionals from economically disadvantaged nations to the meeting to help pave the road between the North and the South. Some of the proceeds of WAC meetings go to the World Students Scholarship Fund, Inc. - a non-profit New Mexico Corporation. This corporation has already raised close to $40K for needy students. WAC has technical sponsorship by IEEE SMC.

Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements.
