Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The aim of the Symposium on Mechanism Design for Robotics (MEDER 2024, is to bring together researchers, industry professionals and students from a broad range of disciplines related to mechanisms and robotics to share the latest developments and discuss the directions for the future of mechanism and robotics research. MEDER 2024 continues a successful series of Symposiums that has been started in Mexico 2010, continued in China 2012, in Denmark 2015, in Italy 2018 and in France 2021. The Conference will be held at the Conference Center and the buildings of Mechanical Faculty of Politehnica University of Timişoara in Timişoara, Romania.

Papers are solicited on topics related with mechanisms within aspects of theory, design, practice and its applications for robotics, including but not limited to: 

  • Mechanism design 
  • Mechanism education and history of MMS 
  • Theoretical and computational kinematics 
  • Experimental mechanics 
  • Mechanics of robots 
  • Control issues of mechanical systems 
  • Machine intelligence 
  • Innovative mechanisms and applications 
  • Linkages and manipulators 
  • Micro-mechanisms 
  • Dynamics of machinery and multi-body systems

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Machines.
