The purpose of the 13th International Conference on Informatics in Control, Automation and Robotics (ICINCO) is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in the application of informatics to Control, Automation and Robotics. Four simultaneous tracks will be held, covering Intelligent Control Systems, Optimization, Robotics, Automation, Signal Processing, Sensors, Systems Modelling and Control, and Industrial Engineering, Production and Management. Informatics applications are pervasive in many areas of Control, Automation and Robotics; This conference intends to emphasize this connection.

One of the most important contributions that ICINCO brings about is the creation of a high-level forum in collaboration with the most prestigious internationally recognized experts, including names such as Kurosh Madani (University of Paris-EST Créteil , France) as a Conference Chair; Oleg Gusikhin (Ford Research & Adv. Engineering, United States) and Dimitri Peaucelle (LAAS-CNRS, France) as a Program Chairs. ICINCO 2016 will have invited keynote speakers, who are internationally recognized experts in their areas: Richard D. Braatz (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, United States), Fumiya Iida (University of Cambridge, United Kingdom), Roland Siegwart (ETH Zürich, Switzerland), Houria Siguerdidjane (Supélec, France) and Sethu Vijayakumar (The University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom).

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.
SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/) and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier).
All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library.
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer in a LNEE Series book.
The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

ICINCO 2016 will be held in conjunction with SIMULTECH 2016.

INSTICC is the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication, a scientific, non-profit, association whose main goals are to serve the international scientific community by promoting, developing and disseminating knowledge in the areas of information systems and technologies, control and communications.
To achieve these goals, INSTICC is committed to integrate and support many activities relevant for the international scientific community, including:

 Promotion of the mobility of renowned researchers, usually involved as keynote speakers at INSTICC events, so that they can share their knowledge with conference delegates;
 Providing grants to support the presence of many young researchers from all over the world, especially from regions facing economic difficulties, who wish to attend INSTICC conferences;
 Publication of proceedings, books and journals – some of them in cooperation with distinguished international publishers – widely indexed and made available at appropriate digital libraries;
 Sponsorship of research projects, proposed by universities and R&D institutes, related to INSTICC main interest areas;
 Collaboration with international associations, who may technically co-sponsor INSTICC events, as well as with companies involved in R&D or supporting of the international academic community.
Over the years, these initiatives have brought together a large and very diversified international community spread over more than 141 countries, including more than 500 high profile keynote speakers, over 15600 specialized reviewers and about 46000 authors.
