◦          High throughput roll-to-roll manufacturing

◦          Monitoring, error detection and recovery in manufacturing

◦          Human-robot interaction and collaboration


Please submit an abstract of 1500 words or an electronic copy of your full paper. You can also propose an organized session which can be formed by 4-6 related papers reviewed and accepted through the regular process. Proposals are submitted with the abstracts of the papers intended for the session.


All submissions should include: title of paper, suggested topic area (from topic list), name(s) of authors, affiliation, and full postal address, telephone, fax and e-mail address. Please indicate clearly the purpose of the paper, references to related works and literature, research method and major results. 


All submitted abstracts/papers will be rigorously peer-reviewed and evaluated by at least two referees for technical content. 


In full papers the standard number of pages is 6 and the maximum page limit is 8 pages. At least one of the authors must register for the symposium in order for the paper to be included in the symposium proceedings. Outstanding selected papers will be published in international journals.


Deadlines for author notifications and camera ready can be found at the conference web page, where possible extensions or new deadlines will be announced.


Keynote speakers will be announced shortly.


Please consider to contribute and encourage your colleagues and team members to submit an abstract (or paper) to the ISAM 2011 conference.
