Special session on New Actuators and Mechanisms

Dear colleague,

You are kindly invited to participate in a special session on “New 
actuators and Mechanisms” that will take place during the 9th US 
National Congress on Computational Mechanics to be held in San 
Francisco, CA next July.


This session aims to bring together researchers, scientists, engineers 
and students to exchange and share experiences, new ideas, and results 
about novel and original actuators and mechanisms and to discuss the 
practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted.
In particular, topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Electromagnetic actuators
- Piezoelectric actuators
- Shape memory alloy (SMA) actuators
- Polymer actuators
- Electro-rheological fluids (ER) based actuators
- Micro/Miniature actuators
- Novel mechanisms
- Experimental-computational kinematics in mechanism design
- Applications in automation, robotics and mechatronics

A one-page abstract is required as intention of participation and it 
should be submitted to the session (track 77) through the conference web 


Submissions due May 1, 2007
Notification of acceptance May 15, 2007
Final manuscripts due June 1, 2007
Registration deadline July 15, 2007
Conference July 23-26, 2007

Best regards
