Welcome from the General Chairs
Dear Participants of ICM 2017,
The International Conference on Mechatronics is an IEEE biannual event held every second year in a different part of the world. The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of emerging Mechatronics technologies and for professional interactions. Additionally, it serves as a conduit for channeling advanced technology to the regional industry.
On behalf of the Industrial Electronics Society (IES) of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the main sponsor of this prestigious international event, and on behalf of the conference’s various committees it is our pleasure and honour to invite and welcome you as a participant in IEEE-ICM 2017 in Australia.
As you are aware, globalization and tariff cuts forced many industries to operate on a continually diminishing profit margin. This environment has created the current urge to develop and implement more efficient industrial practice. Therefore, technology development and implementations (e.g. Automation, Robotisation, Mechatronics applications, etc) play an important role in making industry more sustainable in an increasingly competitive world. Regional industry in Australia and world-wide are in the forefront of facing those economic challenges. In order to help this vital sector of our world, the theme of this conference was chosen to be on:
“Advanced Mechatronics in Service of Regional Industry”
In addition to the high technical standard expected of this conference, we aim to give all participants a real taste of the true Australian culture in the beautiful Gippsland region. The dedicated conference teams are currently working hard on making this conference not only intellectually stimulating but also an unforgettable pleasant experience.
We look forward to welcome you in ICM 2017 and wish you a fruitful and enjoyable stay in Australia.
