Due to the worldwide outbreak of the pandemic covid-19, 2020 the 5th International Conference on Mechanical Engineering and Robotics Research was forced to be held as a virtual conference instead of being held physically as planned in Krakow, Poland. The participants all showed their support and understanding in such situation, who have joined the conference and presented their papers online. On behalf of the organizing committee, we'd like to thank all the keynote speakers, invited speakers and authors. We believe we'll all survive this health crisis and get back to our normal life soon. We look forward to seeing you in the near future.

Accepted and registered papers of ICMERR 2020 will soon be published in IJMERR: http://www.ijmerr.com/list-9-1.html and indexed by Scopus.
