Dear colleagues,

due to several requests, the deadline for the submission of papers to 
the MTM-Robotics 2012 has been extended to November 28, 2011.
Note that this deadline is firm and will not be further extended.

Please, find below the call for papers with the updated deadlines.

We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this message.
Call for Papers for MTM & Robotics 2012 - The Joint International Conference
of the XI International Conference on Mechanisms and Mechanical
(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 Robotics 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:       November 28, 2011
Acceptance notification:   January 15, 2012
Final paper submission:    February 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
www.scienctific.net indexed by SCOPUS and monitored by all major abstract
media. All submitted papers must be strictly prepared following the
publication guidelines.
