Call for Papers for MTM & Robotics 2012 - The Joint International Conference
the XI International Conference on Mechanisms and Mechanical Transmissions
(MTM) and the International Conference on Robotics (Robotics’12),
Clermont-Ferrand, France, June 6-8, 2012  


Organized by
Pascal Institute (CNRS, IFMA, UBP) and Department of Mechatronics (UPT) at
the French Institute for Advanced Mechanics in Clermont-Ferrand, France

Under the Patronage of IFToMM and RSR
International Federation for the Promotion of Mechanism and Machine Science
Robotics Society of Romania (RSR)

With the support of 
Blaise Pascal University (UBP)
Centre National de la Recherché Scientifique  (CNRS)
French Institute for Advanced Mechanics (IFMA)
University “Politehnica” of Timisoara (UPT)

The joint conference will be held in Clermont-Ferrand, at the French
Institute for Advanced Mechanics (IFMA). The organization of this joint
conference is part of a series of scientific and cultural events celebrating
the 20 years of IFMA. Clermont-Ferrand is the capital of Auvergne, a region
of the centre of France, with an incredible diversity of landscapes (a range
of dormant volcanoes which is unique in Europe, wild gorges, lakes and
mountain peaks). Homeland of Blaise Pascal, the region has a rich history
and culture whose charm we invite you to discover. Clermont-Ferrand is
easily accessible from all countries by plane, train or car (see website).
The previous editions were held in Romania, beginning in 1972 under the
patronage of IFToMM and RSR. This is the first edition to be organized
outside Romania and we hope to give it a strong international flavour.
The aim of the joint conference is to bring together researchers,
scientists, industry experts and PhD students to provide a general forum for
researchers, engineers and PhD students involved in the general area of
mechanisms, mechanical transmissions, robotics and mechatronics, to
disseminate their latest research results and exchange views on the future
research directions of these fields.

We are looking for original, high-quality contributions addressing (but not
limited to) the following:
Mechanisms – analysis and synthesis
Dynamics of mechanisms and machines
Mechanical Transmissions
Precision mechanics, Biomechanics, Mechatronics  
Micromechanisms and Microactuators
Computational and Experimental Methods
CAD in mechanism and machine design
Mechanical design of robot architecture
Parallel robots, Mobile robots
Micro and nano robots
Sensors and actuators in robotics,
Intelligent control systems
Biomedical engineering
Teleoperation, haptics, virtual reality

Full paper submission:       October 31, 2011
Acceptance notification:   December 15, 2011
Final paper submission:     January 15, 2012
Early registration: before February 15, 2012.

Submission, presentation and publication
The official language of the joint conference is English. Each paper will be
reviewed, and the papers selected by the Scientific Committee will be
published in the periodical “Applied Mechanics and Materials” available in
full text online at
indexed by SCOPUS and monitored by all major abstract media. All submitted
papers must be strictly prepared following the publication guidelines.
