5th International Conference on Advanced Mechatronics (ICAM 2010)
-Robotics and Mechatronics for Sustainable Innovation-
October 4-6, 2010
Suita, Osaka, Japan


Important Dates: (New)
Due date for paper submission: April 16, 2010
Paper acceptance notification: June 30, 2010
Final manuscript due date: July 23, 2010

The 2010 JSME/RMD International Conference on Advanced Mechatronics(ICAM
2010) will take place at the Suita Campus of Osaka University, Osaka, Japan from
October 4 to 6, 2010.
The ICAM is the only international conference exclusively sponsored and
organized by the Robotics & Mechatronics Division of the Japan Society for Mechanical
This conference is one of the most traditional and historical ones on
robotics and mechatronics, since it was first held in Tokyo in 1988. This is the fifth conference, and
the theme is “Robotics and Mechatronics for Sustainable Innovation”, reflecting the growing expectations for robotics and mechatronics technology especially applicable to biological, medical,
and ecological fields in the recent society. Sustainable innovation of the technology
 will open a frontier to a new era.   

Osaka is one of the most active cities for industries as well as businesses to attract people from all over the world, thus it can provide the best and the most interesting atmosphere for the international meeting. It is famous for providing good quality of foods and entertainments you can enjoy at your free time. Osaka also has good accesses to Kyoto and Nara to enjoy their historical monuments and
architectures in Japanese beautiful fall. You are cordially invited to join us at JSME/RMD ICAM 2010
in Osaka.

The conference aims to provide a forum for researchers, engineers, educators, and students
involved in the general areas of mechatronics, robotics, and automation to disseminate their
latest research results and to exchange their views on the future research directions of the fields.
The topics of interest include, but not limited to the following:

Actuator design and control
Sensor design, sensor fusion, sensor networks
Robot vision and audition
Mechanisms and design, robot kinematics and  dynamics
Mobile robots and path planning
Robot hand and Manipulator
