The CAA Symposium on Fault Detection, Supervision, and Safety for Technical Processes is an biennial symposium initiated by the Professional Committee on Fault Diagnosis and Safety for Technical Processes, Chinese Association of Automation. It provides a forum for scientists and engineers over the world to present their new theoretical results and techniques in this field. The 12th symposium  (CAA SAFEPROCESS 2021) will be held in Chengdu, China from August 6 to August 8, 2021. The symposium consists of keynotes talks, invited sessions, oral sessions, and poster sessions. Its proceedings might be selected for coverage in the IEEE Xplore.
