IEEE ICMA 2020 Call For Papers

Since the global evolving situation with the COVID-19 pandemic is unclear, the organizing committee has made a decision that the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation (IEEE ICMA 2020), which will be held on August 2-5 in Beijing, China, has been postponed to October 13-16, 2020 in the same city. Beijing is both a tribute to China's proud history and a gateway to China's future. The capital city during the Liao, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties, Beijing has long been the political, cultural, and diplomatic center of China. It is now an international metropolis, home to 11 million people from all walks of life.
As the host city of ICMA 2020, Beijing not only provides the attendees with a great venue for this event, but also an unparalled experience in the Chinese history through several historical architectures. You are cordially invited to join us at IEEE ICMA 2020 in Beijing. The objective of ICMA 2020 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
