                   ASME/IEEE MESA 2011 Call for Papers

             The 7th ASME/IEEE International Conference on 
         Mechatronics & Embedded Systems & Applications (MESA 2011)
           Co-sponsored by ASME DED, IEEE ITSS and IEEE CSS
                 August 28-31, 2011, Washington, DC, USA

Mechanical and electrical systems show an increasing integration of mechanics with electronics and information processing. This integration is between the components (hardware) and the information-driven functions (software), resulting in integrated systems called mechatronic systems. The development of mechatronic systems involves finding an optimal balance between the basic mechanical structure, sensor and actuators, automatic digital information processing and control in which embedded systems play a key role. The goal of the 7th ASME/IEEE MESA11, is to bring together experts from the fields of mechatronic and embedded systems, disseminate the recent advances made in the area, discuss future research directions, and exchange application experience. The conference is organized in a number of symposia under the umbrella of the ASME IDETC 2011 (
