Call for papers for the 2021 IEEE/ASME International Conference on Advanced Intelligent Mechatronics (AIM 2021)

The 2021 IEEE/ASME International Conference on Advanced Intelligent Mechatronics (AIM 2021) will be held on July 12-16, 2021 in Delft, with an additional virtual option. The motto will be “sustainable mechatronics”. As a flagship conference focusing on mechatronics and intelligent systems, the AIM 2021 will bring together an international community of experts to discuss the state of the art, new research results, perspectives of future developments, and innovative applications relevant to mechatronics, robotics, automation, industrial electronics, and related areas, not limited to the conference motto. The sponsors and organizers of AIM 2021 invite submissions of high-quality mechatronics research papers describing original work, including but not limited to the following topics: Actuators, Automotive Systems, Bioengineering, Control, Data Storage Systems, Energy Harvesting, Energy-Saving Technology, Electronic Packaging, Fault Diagnosis, Human-Machine Interfaces, Industry Applications, Information Technology, Intelligent Systems, Machine Vision, Manufacturing, Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems, Micro/Nano Technology, Modeling and Design, System Identification and Adaptive Control, Motion Control, Vibration and Noise Control, Opto-Electronic Systems, Optomechatronics, Prototyping, Real-Time and Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulation, Robotics, Sensors, Smart Materials and Structures, Sustainability in Mechatronics, System Integration, Transportation Systems, and frontier fields.

All topics are welcome within the scopes of TMech: AIM 2021.

Authors are invited to submit one of the following:

TMECH/AIM Focused Section Papers:

Submissions to the Second Edition of the Focused Section on TMECH/AIM Emerging Topics (renamed from previously TMECH/AIM Concurrent Submission) are done through the TMECH site Accepted TMECH/AIM Focused Section papers will be presented at AIM 2021 and published in the Second Edition of TMECH/AIM Focused Section in the August Issue of TMECH in 2021. The publication in the dedicated Issue of TMECH, however, will be subject to the presentation of the paper at AIM 2021 with paid registration fee. Papers rejected for publication in TMECH will still be considered by the Program Committee of AIM 2021, which makes a final acceptance/rejection decision for AIM 2021. Manuscripts should be submitted to TMECH online at:, selecting the track ‘TMECH/AIM Emerging Topics’. The cover letter must be included with the following statement: This paper is submitted to the  Second Edition of Focused Section on TMECH/AIM Emerging Topics. The full information of the paper must be submitted concurrently to AIM 2021 online at the following link:, noted with the given TMECH  manuscript number. 

For more details about submission/review procedures and timelines, please refer to the Call for Papers for TMECH/AIM Focused Section 

Accepted TMECH paper presentation

Authors of accepted TMech papers (regular and short papers) between August 1, 2020 and May 1, 2021 will have the option to present their paper at the AIM 2021. At this conference the TMech authors can promote and highlight their publication to the international mechatronics community in a fast track.

At least one author must register for the conference and present the work in accordance with AIM rules governing registration and presentation. The presented paper will not be published in the AIM2021 Xplore proceedings, since the paper will be published as a TMECH paper. The paper will be included as part of the regular AIM2021 Program.

Please upload the paper in PaperPlaza Conference system (, under the track “TMECH Paper Presentation”, noted with the given TMECH  manuscript number.

AIM Contributed and Invited Papers:

All papers go through a rigorous review process. Accepted papers will be presented by their authors at the conference. All accepted peer-reviewed manuscripts will be published in the conference proceedings, and will be submitted for inclusion in IEEEXplore, subject to formatting and copyright requirements.

Please upload contributed papers in the PaperPlaza Conference system (, under the track “Contributed Paper”, and invited papers under the track “Invited Session Paper”.

For the template please click on this link and then “conference” and “letter (not A4)” option.

Tutorials & Workshops:

Proposals are invited for half-day or full-day tutorials and workshops. Workshops explore the frontiers of recent or emerging topics in mechatronics, while tutorials provide a foundation for future self-study in important areas of mechatronics. Tutorial and workshop proposals must include: (1) a statement of objectives, (2) a description of the intended audience, (3) a list of speakers with an outline of their planned presentations. Unless specifically requested, individual tutorial and workshop presentations are not peer-reviewed and do not appear in the proceedings.

Invited & Special Sessions:

Proposals are invited for invited and special sessions. Invited sessions consist of 4 to 6 thematically related invited papers. Invited session proposals consist of a brief statement of purpose and extended abstracts of the included invited papers. Invited papers are submitted and reviewed following the same process as contributed papers, and are included in the proceedings.

All contributed and invited papers, tutorial and workshop proposals, and invited and special session proposals for AIM2021 must be uploaded through according to the deadlines mentioned on the Important dates page.

Latest Breaking results Posters:

You are cordially invited to contribute Late Breaking Results abstract to AIM 2021.The submissions are one-page in length with a streamlined acceptance-decision process, and they are presented at the conference as posters.

This component of the conference technical program is intended to reach out to the broader mechatronics research community, and the submissions are not peer-reviewed. Although accepted abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings, since they are not considered as publications, they will not be submitted to IEEE for inclusion in the Xplore database. AIM 2021 invites submissions in all areas of intelligent mechatronic systems, their components, and applications.

Authors of the best poster from Late Breaking Results Posters will receive an award along with a certificate.

Prospective poster presenters should submit a 1-page abstract by May 25, 2021, through the PaperPlaza system:
