IEEE ICMA2006 Call For Papers

The 2006 IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation (ICMA 2006) will take place in Luoyang, Henan, China from June 25 to June 28, 2006. Located in the center of China, on the south bank of the Yellow River, Luoyang enjoys a glorious history as the ancient capital city of more than ten dynasties. Among many attractions, Luoyang is home to the Longmen Grottoes inscribed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO, a gateway to the world famous Shao Lin Temple, and the City of Peonies. As the host city of ICMA 2006, Luoyang 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 2006 in Luoyang to live this unique experience. The objective of ICMA 2006 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
- 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
- CAD/CAM/CAE and manufacturing systems, technologies and applications
- Navigation and control algorithms for flying, surface and underwater mobile robots
- Signal and image processing and pattern recognition in mechatronic systems
- And any other areas related to mechatronics theory, systems and applications
