APCDA invites you to share and showcase your professional expertise, research, or successful practices. According to the European Commission, Industry 5.0 “provides a vision of industry that aims beyond efficiency and productivity as sole goals and reinforces the role and contribution of industry to society.” In 2024, the focus will be on how the fifth industrial revolution will change our world.

The deadline for proposals for presentations:  November 15, 2023

See the conference page for the schedule, registration fees, and other information.  

Official Conference Language: All presentations will be in English. No translation services will be provided.

Technology: All presentations will be Virtual.  The Conference will provide a Zoom channel for your presentation.  If you prefer to use different online presentation software, you may provide your own link to us, if your software allows your presentation to be viewed in China (anything based on Google is banned in China).  You may provide a pre-recorded video for a portion of the time, but we expect you to be available in person after the video ends to answer questions.

Handouts: Presenters are responsible for providing handouts and/or PowerPoint slides for the attendees. They will be pre-loaded into the conference software 2 weeks before the event so attendees have time to download them before the event. Your event will be recorded and provided to attendees following the event. Due to time zone issues, there may be many who choose to watch the video after the conference.

Program Selection Process: All who propose will be notified via email of acceptance or rejection of the proposal no later than Thursday, November 30, 2023.  Occasionally, proposals get lost in cyber-space. If you do not receive a decision by this date, please contact
