Welcome to the ICAMechS 2011 homepage!
The 2011 International Conference on Advanced Mechatronic Systems (ICAMechS 2011) will be held in Zhengzhou City, China. This international conference, sponsored by International Journal of Advanced Mechatronic Systems, Zhongyuan University of Technology, IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society, International Journal of Modelling, Identification and Control, Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology and Ryukou General Service Corporation, will provide an international forum for professionals, academics, and researchers to present latest developments from interdisciplinary theoretical studies, computational algorithm developments and applications of mechatronic systems. It particularly welcomes those emerging methodologies and techniques which bridge theoretical studies and applications in all mechatronic systems. Novel quantitative engineering and science studies may be considered as well. All accepted conference papers will be included in the IEEE Xplore, and then can be indexed by EI Compendex.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to participate in this exciting event.
Zhengzhou (about halfway between Beijing and Shanghai) is the capital of Henan province, People's Republic of China. It also serves as the political, economic, technological, and educational centre of the province, as well as being a major transportation hub for Central China. The city centre lies on the southern bank of the Yellow River, and is one of the Eight Great Ancient Capitals of China. The Zhengzhou city wall was built 3,500 years ago in the Shang era. The first phase of a new urban district with 40 high rises and commercial and cultural facilities organized into two circular “loopcities” connected by canals is scheduled to be completed soon.
The Shaolin Monastery or Shaolin Temple is a Chan Buddhist temple at Song Shan near Zhengzhou City Henan Province in Dengfeng, China. Founded in the 5th century, the monastery is long famous for its association with Chinese martial arts and particularly with Shaolin Kung Fu, and it is the Mahayana Buddhist monastery perhaps best known to the Western world. The Shaolin Monastery and its famed Pagoda Forest were inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010 as part of the "Historic Monuments of Dengfeng."
The Longmen Grottoes or Longmen Caves (160 kilometers west of Zhengzhou) are located 12 km south of present day Luoyang in Henan province, China. The grottoes, which overwhelmingly depict Buddhist subjects, are densely dotted along the two mountains: Xiangshan (to the east) and Longmenshan (to the west). The Yi River flows northward between them. For this reason, the area used to be called Yique (The Gate of the Yi River). From north to south, the distance covered by grottoes is about one km. Along with the Mogao Caves and Yungang Grottoes, the Longmen Grottoes are one of the three most famous ancient sculptural sites in China. There are over 2100 niches, more than 100,000 statues, some 40 pagodas and 3600 tablets and steles in the caves of Guyang, Binyang and Lianhua. According to the Longmen Caves Research Institute, there are 2345 caves and niches, 2800 inscriptions, 43 pagodas and over 100,000 Buddhist images at the site. 30% of the caves date from the Northern Wei Dynasty, 60% from the Tang Dynasty, and caves from other periods less than 10%. It is the most impressive collection of Chinese art from these dynasties, and, dating from 316 to 907 CE, represents the zenith of stone carving in China.
