IEEE ICMA 2009 Call For Papers

The 2009 IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation (ICMA 2009) will take place in Changchun, Jilin, China from August 9 to August 12, 2009. A renowned ancient city in China, Changchun is situated in northeastern China. As the capital of Jilin province, Changchun is known as the cradle of new China's automobile industry, optoelectronics technology and biological technology, applied chemistry and so on. It ranks predominantly China in terms of the research and development on optics, exactitude apparatus, laser technique, macromolecule material,biological products, super conduct and automobile, etc.
As the host city of ICMA 2009, Changchun not only provides the attendees with a great venue for this event, but also an unparallel experience in Chinese history and culture. You are cordially invited to join us at IEEE ICMA 2009 in Changchun to live this unique experience. The objective of ICMA 2009 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
