Dear Colleague,

  Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement.  

  2013 IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation (ICMA 2013) 
  will take place in Takamatsu, Kagawa, Japan from August 4 to August 7, 2013.

  Please visit the website http://2013.ieee-icma.org/ for the detailed information.

  As the host city of ICMA 2013, Takamatsu not only provides the attendees with a great 
  venue for this event, but also an unparallel experience in the Japanese history through 
  several historical architectures. You are cordially invited to join us at IEEE ICMA 
  2013 in Takamatsu. The objective of ICMA 2013 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
