Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement.
2012 IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation (ICMA 2012)
will take place in Chengdu, Sichuan, China from August 5 to August 8, 2012.
Please visit the website http://2012.ieee-icma.org/ for the detailed information.
As the host city of ICMA 2012, Chengdu not only provides the attendees with a great
venue for this event, but also an unparallel experience in Chinese history and
culture. You are cordially invited to join us at IEEE ICMA 2012 in Chengdu to live
this unique experience. The objective of ICMA 2012 is to provide a forum for
researchers, educators, engineers, and government officials involved in the general
areas of mechatronics, robotics, automation and sensors to disseminate their latest
research results and exchange views on the future research directions of these fields.
The topics of interest include, but not limited to the following:
- Intelligent mechatronics, robotics, biomimetics, automation and control systems
- Opto-electronic elements and Materials, laser technology and laser processing
- Elements, structures, mechanisms, and applications of micro and nano systems
- Teleoperation, telerobotics, haptics, and teleoperated semi-autonomous systems
- Sensor design, multi-sensor data fusion algorithms and wireless sensor networks
- Biomedical and rehabilitation engineering, prosthetics and artificial organs
- Control system modeling and simulation techniques and methodologies
- AI, intelligent control, neuro-control, fuzzy control and their applications
- Industrial automation, process control, manufacturing process and automation
All paper must be submitted in PDF format prepared strictly following the IEEE PDF
Requirments for Creating PDF Documents for the IEEE Xplore. The standard number of
pages is 6 and the maximum page limit is 8 pages with extra payment for the two extra pages.
See detailed instructions in the conference web site. All papers accepted by IEEE ICMA 2012
will be indexed by EI and included in IEEE Xplore. Extensions of selected papers will be
