Because of the inherently
multidisciplinary nature of Multibody Systems and Mechatronics, the
scope of the topics in the congress is necessarily broad, but within the
science of motion. Papers include subjects on Multibody kinematics and
dynamics and Mechatronics and are not limited to the following topics:
synthesis of mechanisms
algorithms for mechatronic systems
procedures and results
A limited number of papers
by students will be accepted for presentation. The Scientific Committee
will select thirty papers for
presentation at the sessions, which will be published in the
