The deadline for abstract submission for the 2007 ASME IMECE is fast
approaching (March 5, 2007)! 

Only abstracts of 400 words or less are due at this time and will be used to
allocate sessions. Full draft papers for peer-review need to be submitted
only by May 29, 2007.

However, it is very important that abstracts are submitted under the correct
symposium name on the ASME conference website
(http://www.asmeconferences.org/congress07/) -- so please select the "Track
17, Mechanical Systems and Control", then select "17-13 Advances in Robot
Dynamics and Control". A detailed call for papers is included below.

We look forward to your continued participation and support!

The Robotics Technical Committee of the ASME Dynamic Systems and Control
Division (DSCD) invites papers and special sessions in the area of "Robot
Dynamics and Control". The symposium will bring together researchers working
in this area, report recent developments in the field and stimulate new
directions of research. The major topic areas of interest are: (A)
Interactive Human-Machine Systems: Teleoperation and Haptics, (B)
Biomimetics, Exoskeletons, Rehabilitation & Medical Robotics, and (C) Novel
Complex Robotic Systems (including Space, Mobile, Military, Underwater,
Walking, Parallel, Search and Rescue Robots, Micro and Nano robots).
Subtopics of interest include, but are not limited to:

*	Novel architectures for articulated mechanical systems - design,
modeling and identification; 
*	Advances in analysis and control of interactions (motion/force) with
the environment; 
*	New compact, inexpensive and distributed sensor/actuator networks
and related mechatronic technologies; 
*	Emerging paradigms for validation and testing of systems of systems;

*	Theoretical & experimental studies of emerging research topics such
as robot collectives, dynamic legged locomotion, self-organizing swarms,
distributed manipulation, hybrid systems; 
*	Advances in design, modeling, analysis and control of complex
robotic systems (including Space, Medical, Mobile, Military, Underwater,
Walking, Parallel, Search and Rescue Robots, Humanoids, Micro and Nano

Prospective authors should submit a 400-word abstract via the web tool at
the Congress 2007 website (http://www.asmeconferences.org/congress07/) and
direct it the Advances in Robot Dynamics and Control Symposium organized by
the Robotics Technical Committee. Final papers will be available on CD-ROM
at the meeting.
