The IEEE Victorian Section is proud to host and support the 2017 International Conference on Mechatronics 14-17 February 2017. This conference is unique and exciting for many reasons. However, one standout feature of this conference is amazing Victorian countryside, Gippsland.

This is your chance to experience the heart of the Australia culture in the beautiful country sitting of Gippsland and get the most of the Intellectually Stimulating Technical Program on Mechatronics.

This is a personal invitation to participate in the well-known IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics (IEEE-ICM 2017).
This international event is held every two years in a different place around the world. The next edition will be held in Gippsland, Australia. The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of emerging Mechatronics technologies and for professional interactions.  Additionally, it serves as a conduit for channelling advanced technology to industry.

Conference Topics:

•  Robotics, Mobile Platforms, Unmanned Vehicles
•  Mechatronics applications in agriculture and regional industries.
•  Advanced Manufacturing
•  Advanced Motion Control
•  Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Control
•  System Integration
•  Sensors and Actuators, Haptics and Networks
•  Automotive and Transportation Systems
•  Micro/Nano Mechatronics
•  Vibration and Noise Control
•  Mechatronics in Energy Systems
•  Modelling and Design
•  Fault detection and Diagnosis in Mechatronics Systems
•  Human-Machine Interface
•  Applications (Medical, Bioengineering, Aeronautics, …)
•  Mechatronics Applications in Cyber-physical Systems
•  Mechatronics in Tertiary Education

New and Final Submission Dates:

  1. Submission of Special Session Proposals: 15 July 2016
  2. Deadline for submission of full paper: 15 August 2016
  3. Notification of acceptance with electronic publication instruction: 1 November 2016
