Call for Papers for the 41st Mechanisms and Robotics Conference (MR)
at the ASME 2017 International Design Engineering Technical Conferences 

*Abstract and Final Draft Paper Due: February 10, 2017*

The 41st ASME Mechanisms and Robotics (MR) conference will be held as 
part of the 2017 ASME International Design Engineering Technical 
Conferences & Computers & Information in Engineering Conference 
(IDETC/CIE) in Cleveland, OH, August 6-9, 2017.

Since 1952, the ASME Mechanisms and Robotics (MR) conference has 
provided an international forum for the exchange of technical and 
scientific information on the theory and practice of mechanical and 
robotic systems.  Topics span areas central to design and analysis of 
mechanical, mechatronic, and robotic systems, including kinematics, 
dynamics, novel mechanisms and robots, software systems, educational 
practices, and various applications. Papers are particularly encouraged 
from the areas in soft-, flexible- and human-safe robots, reconfigurable 
mechanisms and robots, origami-based systems, rehabilitation and medical 
robots, and exoskeleton/prosthesis design and development.

Submitted papers will be eligible for the Mechanisms and Robotics Best 
Paper, Freudenstein/ General Motors Young Investigator, A.T. Yang 
Memorial, and Compliant Mechanism awards. Authors of the strongest 
papers at the conference will also be invited to submit enhanced 
archival versions to an IDETC Special Issue of the Journal of Mechanisms 
and Robotics.

The MR conference will host the following symposia:

MR-1 Mechanism Synthesis & Analysis
MR-2 Theoretical & Computational Kinematics
MR-3 Compliant Mechanisms
MR-4 Origami-Based Engineering Design
MR/MNS-5 Micro/Nano-Scale Robotics & Manufacturing
MR/MSNDC-6 Motion Planning, Dynamics & Control
MR-7 Medical & Rehabilitation Robots
MR-8 Novel Mechanisms, Robots & Applications

Conference organizers:
Andreas Mueller (Johannes Kepler Uni., Linz, Austria, a.mueller at jku.at)
James Schmiedeler (Uni. of Notre Dame, IN, James.P.Schmiedeler.4 at nd.edu)
Philip Voglewede (Marquette Uni., WI, philip.voglewede at marquette.edu)
