Call for Papers
The 2019 IEEE/ASME International Conference on Advanced Intelligent Mechatronics (AIM 2019) will be held on July 8 -12, 2019 in Hong Kong Science Park, Hong Kong, China. As a flagship conferences focusing on mechatronics and intelligent systems, the AIM 2019 will bring together an international community of experts to discuss the state-of-the-art, new research results, perspectives of future developments, and innovative applications relevant to mechatronics, robotics, automation, industrial electronics, and related areas.
The sponsors and organizers of AIM 2019 invite a submission of high quality mechatronics research papers describing original work, including but not limited to the following topics: Actuators, Automotive Systems, Bioengineering, Data Storage Systems, Electronic Packaging, Fault Diagnosis, Human-Machine Interfaces, Industry Applications, Information Technology, Intelligent Systems, Machine Vision, Manufacturing, Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems, Micro/Nano Technology, Modeling and Design, System Identification and Adaptive Control, Motion Control, Vibration and Noise Control, Neural and Fuzzy Control, Opto-Electronic Systems, Optomechatronics, Prototyping, Real-Time and Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulation, Robotics, Sensors, System Integration, Transportation Systems, Smart Materials and Structures, Energy Harvesting, and other frontier fields.
All contributed and invited papers, tutorial and workshop proposals, and invited and special session proposals must be uploaded through the submission website according to the deadlines below.
Contributed & Invited Papers: All papers go through a rigorous review process. Accepted papers will be presented by their authors at the conference. All accepted peer-reviewed manuscripts will be published in the conference proceedings, and will be submitted for inclusion in IEEEXplore, subject to formatting and copyright requirements.
Invited & Special Sessions: Proposals are invited for invited and special sessions. Invited sessions consist of 4 to 6 thematically related invited papers. Invited session proposals consist of a brief statement of purpose and extended abstracts of the included invited papers. Invited papers are submitted and reviewed following the same process as contributed papers, and are included in the proceedings.
AIM Papers to TMECH publication: Selected 2019 AIM papers will be invited to submit an extended version to IEEE/ASME Transactions Mechatronics (TMECH) for publication consideration in an AIM Focused Section to be published in 2020. The extended version to TMECH should contain sufficient and recognizable new innovation, contribution, result, and material from the 2019 AIM paper.
Instruction for Authors and Submission
The submission is now open through PaperPlaza, please see the following link: https://ras.papercept.net/conferences/scripts/start.pl
Full papers are to be submitted.
You can find information on the required template here: https://ras.papercept.net/conferences/support/support.php
Authors should adhere to the following steps for submitting the paper (for initial submission):
1. Create an account: go to https://ras.papercept.net, then PIN and fill out the form. Ask all your co-authors to do the same if they do not have an account on the system yet, write down the authors’ PINs (this information is needed for manuscript processing purposes).
2. Go to Support Menu and depending on how you are preparing your paper, download a template: LaTeX or MS-Word
*Use these templates/style files to create the paper and save in PDF format.
3. Upload the paper: go to https://ras.papercept.net and click on “Submit a contribution to AIM 2019″.
4. Submit regular paper.
5. Fill in the form presented on the next page (make sure to enter all author PINs created in Step 1).
A manuscript should be of 6 pages, with 2 additional pages allowed but at an extra charge of US$180/page.
Conference Paper Review
All papers submitted to AIM 2019 will undergo a peer review process. A manuscript will be reviewed by at least three reviewers, who will provide detailed comments and – if the submission gets accepted – the authors submit a revised (“camera-ready”) version that takes into account this feedback. The review process is managed by the program chair, the program co-chairs, the editors, and the conference associate editors.
All papers are reviewed using a single-blind review process, where the authors declare their names and affiliations in the manuscript for the reviewers to see, but reviewers do not know each other’s identities, nor do the authors receive information about who has reviewed their manuscript. A maximum of eight to ten full papers will be evaluated per reviewer. With this method, reviewers are free to be completely honest in their assessments without fear of harassment and they also benefit from evaluating the author’s current research in the context of the author’s past work.
