Dear Colleagues and Friends,

May I remind you of the following two deadlines for submissions of the extended abstracts and the full-length papers for the 36th ASME Mechanisms and Robotics International Conference, 12-15 August 2012, Chicago, IL.

Dead line for submitting the extended abstracts: 5pm EST on Monday, February 6, 2012
Dead line for submitting the full-length draft paper: 5pm EST on Monday, February 20, 2012

The 36th ASME Mechanisms and Robotics International Conference is to be held as part of the 2012 ASME International Design Engineering Technical Conferences and Computers and Information in Engineering Conference (DETC-CIE). The conference will take place in Chicago, IL, from August 12-15, 2012. Organized by the Mechanisms and Robotics Technical Committee, an integral part of the ASME Design Engineering Division, this annual gathering as a series of 36 conferences since 1952 is a premier international meeting in mechanisms, robotics and related fields. The 36th ASME Mechanisms and Robotics International Conference provides an international forum for the exchange of technical and scientific information on the theory and practice of mechanical systems and will feature tutorials and workshops, student mechanism and robot design competitions, keynote and invited speakers, and interactive presentation sessions. Topics will range throughout areas central to mechanical design including kinematics, dynamics, design, computation, robotics, reconfigurable mechanisms, novel mechanisms and robots, and various applications. Authors and presenters have the opportunity to expand international cooperation, understanding, and promotion of efforts and disciplines in the area of mechanisms and robotics. Dissemination of knowledge by presenting research results, new developments, and novel concepts will serve as the foundation upon which the conference program will be developed. Submitted papers will be eligible for a number of awards including the Mechanisms and Robotics Best Paper award, Freudenstein/General Motors Young Investigator award, A.T. Yang Memorial award, and Compliant Mechanisms Theory and Application awards. Likely topics include but are not limited to:

MR-1 Mechanism Analysis and Synthesis
MR-2 Robot Kinematics and Motion Planning
MR-3 Robot/Machine Dynamics and Control
MR-4 Theoretical and Computational Kinematics (A.T. Yang Symposium)
MR-5 Compliant Mechanisms and Micro/Nano Mechanisms (A. Midha Symposium)
MR-6 Biologically Inspired and Health Motivated Mechanisms and Robotics
MR-7 Novel Mechanisms, Robots and Applications
MR-8 Mobile Robots and Cable-Driven Systems

For more detailed information about these topics and the conference, please seehttp://www.asmeconferences.org/IDETC2012/CallForPapersDetail.cfm. As per the online publication schedule, abstracts for initial review must be submitted by 5 pm EST on Monday, February 6, 2012, using the online submission system. In addition, and only if you have submitted the abstract by the due date, you MUST also submit a full length draft paper for peer review by 5 pm EST on Monday, February 20, 2012.

You are kindly asked to forward this call to your colleagues and students.

Kind regards,
