The 8th International Conference on Control, Mechatronics and Automation (http://www.iccma.org/index.html) will be held in Moscow, Russia, on November 6–8, 2020.
The conference aims to bring together the two fields of system design and control. Today, flexible robotics and compliant mechanism design use nonlinearities―which were once considered hindrances to system design―to their advantage. In addition, advances in control technology such as nonlinear control and fractional order control are advantageously being used to go beyond classical linear control and, therefore, increase the applicability of complex mechanisms for robotics and mechatronic systems. This Special Issue covers a wide range of fields in mechanical engineering and aims to bring together engineering technology expertise. Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Design, modeling, and control of precision motion systems
- Flexible robotics, soft robotics
- Compliant mechanism
- Precision mechanism
- Mechatronic system design
- Vibration analysis and control
- Dynamics of flexible systems
- Fractional order system and control
- Nonlinear control for motion systems
- Smart automation

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Machines is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
