Call For Papers

The 39th Mechanisms and Robotics Conference is to be held as part of the 2015 ASME International Design Engineering Technical Conferences and Computers and Information in Engineering Conference in Boston, MA from August 2-5, 2015. Sponsored by the Mechanisms and Robotics Technical Committee, an integral part of the ASME Design Engineering Division, this annual gathering as a series of 39 conferences since 1952 is a premier international meeting in mechanisms, robotics and related fields. The 39th ASME Mechanisms and Robotics Conference provides an international forum for the exchange of technical and scientific information on the theory and practice of mechanical systems and will feature tutorials and workshops, student mechanism and robot design competitions, keynote and invited speakers, and interactive presentation sessions. Topics will range throughout areas central to mechanical design including kinematics, dynamics, design, computation, robotics, reconfigurable mechanisms, novel mechanisms and robots, software systems, educational practices, and various applications as well as emerging areas such as origami-based engineering design. Dissemination of knowledge by presenting research results, new developments, and novel concepts will serve as the foundation upon which the conference program will be developed. Submitted papers will be eligible for a number of awards including the Mechanisms and Robotics Best Paper award, Freudenstein/General Motors Young Investigator award, A.T. Yang Memorial award, and Compliant Mechanisms Theory and Application awards. Likely topics include but are not limited to:

MR-1 Planar Mechanism Analysis and Synthesis
MR-2 Spatial/Spherical Mechanism Analysis and Synthesis
MR-3 Robot Kinematics and Motion Planning
MR-4 Robot/Machine Dynamics and Control
MR-5 Theoretical and Computational Kinematics (A.T. Yang Symposium)
MR-6 Compliant Mechanisms and Micro/Nano Mechanisms (A. Midha Symposium)
MR-7 Nature & Biologically Inspired and Health Motivated Mechanisms and Robotics
MR-8 Novel Mechanisms, Robots and Applications
MR-9 Mobile Robots and Cable-Driven Systems
MR-10 Origami-Based Engineering Design
MR-11 Software and Education in Mechanisms and Robots
MR-12 Student Mechanisms and Robotics Design Competition

Important Dates (Two-stage submission deadlines):

Stage 1: Author and Paper Registration: January 12, 2015
Stage 2: Submission of Draft Paper or Brief for Review: January 26, 2015

Note: In order to submit a draft paper or brief for review at Stage 2, authors must first register and submit a tentative title and abstract at Stage 1.
