ReMAR 2009
The ASME/IFToMM International Conference on Reconfigurable Mechanisms and Robots (ReMAR 2009)

will take place during June 22 - 24, 2009  at King's College London, University of London.

We invite you to submit a paper or to make a proposal for a special session and to come to ReMAR 2009

All details including submission (template for 'full paper'), scientific programme, social programme, venue and accommodation

can be found on the website http://www.remar2009.com/  

Please note the extended deadline for submission of regular papers is 10 December, 2008

Looking forward to welcome you in London

The more details are as follows:

With the development of science and technology and with space exploration, hazardous environment work, and production requirements of small batch and quick change-over, traditional concepts of mechanisms and robots development are facing a challenge in the 21st century for adaptability and reconfigurability. This led to continuous effort from researchers since 1990s of generating new ideas and concepts for new mechanisms and machines including robots for reconfigurability.

It is now felt by the wide community in mechanisms, robotics and design that it is a good time to hold this international conference for people in this field to express their views and for people from the community to discuss the research in this reconfigurable mechanisms and robots and to discuss the future direction in this rising field in reconfigurable mechanisms and robots. 

The ASME/IFToMM International Conference on Reconfigurable Mechanisms and Robots (ReMAR 2009) is to provide an international forum for presenting and discussing new mechanisms and robots developed in the past decade for their new properties in changing topological structure and therefore the mobility of a mechanism/robot and for discussing their uses for domestic, hazardous, out-space and manufacturing environments for adaptability and reconfiguration. The main areas of this conference include, but not limit to, following subjects:

Novel Mechanism Design
Reconfiguration and Adaptability
Metamorphic Mechanisms
Reconfigurable Mechanisms
Reconfigurable Topology
Metamorphic Robotics
Reconfigurable Manufacturing
Bio-design Technics
Bio-metamorphic Robotics
Reconfigurable Robots
Kinematics and Dynamics of Reconfiguration
Bio-reconfiguration Engineering
Various Topology Modeling
Modular Devices
Biological Self-Assembly Mechanisms

There are currently three proposals for the special sessions on Reconfigurable Manipulation Systems for Soft and Limb Materials, on Reconfigurable Production Automation and Control/Innovative Future Manufacturing, on Novel Mechanisms for Space Exploration, and on Reconfigurable Computing for Reconfigurable Robots. 

There are currently two awards on best paper on reconfigurable mechanisms and best paper on reconfigurable robots.

The ReMAR 2009 will be held at King's College London, University of London, which is situated at the heart of London, UK, in conjuction to the celebration of 171 Years of Engineering at King's College London. King's is one of the oldest and most prestigious UK universities with 13,000 undergraduate students and 9,200 graduates in nine schools of study with 2,700 academic staff and 2,700 other staff. The Engineering was established at King's in 1838 and is arguably the oldest established engineering school in England. King's College London was ranked in the top 25 of the world leading universities.

You are very welcome to submit your work to this conference. Your submission will be reviewed by members of our Programme Committee and selected external reviewers. The special issues of Robotica and Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science will be followed. More detailed information about this event can be found in conference official website: www.remar2009.com <http://www.remar2009.com/>
