CAINE 2020:Editor's Preface

This volume contains the papers presented at CAINE 2020: The 33rd International Conference on Computer Applications in Industry and Engineering held on October 19-21, 2020. This conference is in conjunction with the 29th International Conference on Software Engineering and Data Engineering (SEDE 2020). Due to the pandemic, this year's conference was held virtually.

This year we received 46 submissions. To assure the quality of papers selected for presentations and publication, each submission was reviewed by multiple program committee members based on technical content and accuracy, significance of the results, the conference scope, clarity of ideas, and overall quality. The committee decided to accept 11 papers. The program also includes 1 invited keynote talk by Dr. Baihua Li from Loughborough University, U.K..

We would like to thank ISCA director Dr. Narayan Debnath for his work in handling registration and working with original conference venue booking. We gratefully acknowledge the active contributions of our program committee and session chairs. We also want to thank all presenters and attendees for actively contributing to the success of CAINE 2020, , especially during this pandemic. We are looking forward to excellent presentations and fruitful discussions, which will broaden our professional horizons.
