I didn't realize that the list does not allow attachments therefore I have
modified my original post request.


Dear Colleagues

We have extended the deadline for submitting a letter of intent to May 8th,
2009 for submitting an entry to this year's ASME Student Mechanism and Robot
Design Competition to be held at the 2009 ASME International Design
Engineering Technical Conferences in San Diego, CA from August 30-September
2, 2009. This competition is organized by the ASME Mechanisms and Robotics

The ASME Student Mechanism and Robot Design Competition is an excellent
opportunity for both undergraduate and graduate students to showcase their
abilities in designing mechanisms and robots. This competition consists of
two rounds: in round one, student(s) send a report on their design, and in
round two, a few selected teams from round one are invited to the conference
to present their design. Winners of the competition will be recognized
during the Mechanisms and Robotics luncheon at the conference venue, and
presented with awards which in the past have included both cash and software
prizes. Additionally, an effort will be made to allocate some travel funds
to be evenly divided among the finalists.

The details on how to participate can be found at

We would appreciate if you can distribute this email to your colleagues
working in the mechanisms and robotics area, and post it on the department
bulletin board for further dissemination.

Thank you.
