Call For Papers

Introduction of ICMT Conference:

The technical term, Mechatronics, was coined by Mr. Tetsuro Mori, CEO/President, Seibu Electric and Machinery Co. Ltd., in 1969 when he worked for Yaskawa Electric Corporation in Kitakyushu, Japan. The purpose was to promote the new technology to produce new machine tools by integrating machines and electronics. “Mechatronics” is therefore a means to open up a brighter future through innovation in technology.

The ICMT is an annual international mechatronics and technology conference that has been successfully held for 17 years. ICMT offers a forum to discuss state-of-the-art technologies and emerging application trends, and provides great opportunities for professional interactions and networking in a friendly and hospitable setting. The first ICMT was convened in Santa Clara, USA, in 1996, and subsequently in Yokohama, Hsinchu, Pusan, Singapore, Kitakyushu, Taipei, Hanoi, Kuala Lumpur, Mexico City, Ulsan, Sudbury, Cebu City, Osaka, Melbourne, Tianjin, Jeju Island, and this year at Taipei, Taiwan. The objective of ICMT is to facilitate close dialogues, networking and collaborations among experts on issues related to research and technological development in mechatronics, as well as in human resource development and education.

ICMT 2014 continues to follow the rich tradition of ICMT with the following conference theme:

Innovative Mechatronics Technology
