Welcome to ICAM 2015

   The 6th International Conference on Advanced Mechatronics (ICAM2015) will take place at Nishiwaseda Campus of Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan from December 5th to 8th, 2015.

    ICAM is the only international conference exclusively sponsored and organized by the Robotics & Mechatronics Division of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers. This conference is one of the most traditional and historical ones on robotics and mechatronics, since it was first held in Tokyo in 1988. This is the sixth conference, and the theme is set "Next Generation in Advanced Mechatronics", reflecting the mounting expectations to next generation mechatronics technology especially applicable to disaster recovery and reconstruction, neuro-rehabilitation, sports training and new flight business in the recent society. In addition, inspired and followed by pioneers who had established mechatronics fields, next generation researchers who try to bear a part in robot innovation with advanced mechatronics and robotics technologies are now emerging and will put together at ICAM2015 in terms of presenters, leaders and organizers!!

    Summary papers with 1-2 page only submitted to ICAM2015 will be reviewed and accepted ones to be presented at the conference. Followed by the conference, selected papers will be invited for publication in the JSME official journal, “ROBOMECH Journal” after a peer review.

     All the sessions at ICAM2015 will be offered with interactive poster presentation, which allows presenters and participants to obtain a great opportunity for fruitful and in-depth discussions leading to the improvement of each research prior to journal publication. In addition, let us announce that ICAM2015 will providea unique trial “Avatar robot session” where avatar robot (anonymous audience behind it) unexpectedly visits to listen to your poster presentation.

    The topics of interest include, but not limited to the following:

  • Actuator design and control
  • Sensor design, sensor fusion, sensor networks
  • Robot vision and audition
  • Mechanisms and design, robot kinematics and dynamics
  • Mobile robots and path planning
  • Robot hand and Manipulator
