AIM 2014, IEEE/ASME International Conference on Advanced Intelligent Mechatronics

July 8-11, 2014
Besançon, France

The 2014 IEEE/ASME International Conference on Advanced Intelligent Mechatronics (AIM 2014) will be held on July 8-11, 2014 in Besançon, France, the city which gave birth in 1862 to Auguste Marie Louis Nicolas Lumière and in 1864 to his brother Louis Jean Lumière, both inventors of the cinematograph. The city is a stage city of the “Tour de France 2014” on July 14-16 and will host the departure of the 11th stage to Oyonnax. Once proclaimed the first green city of France, it has been labeled a ‘Town of Art and History’ since 1986.Since 2008, Besançon’s Vauban citadel (la Citadelle) has been listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.

The AIM 2014 conference 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, control, automation, and related areas.

The conference theme is “Intelligent Mechatronics and Smart Matter” which highlights Functional Integration for Multi-Scale Technologies ensuring societal and industrial needs. The conference will take place at the “Mercure Hotel” and the “Nouveau Théâtre de Besançon”, Parc Micaud which is located in the city center of Besançon.

The IEEE/ASME International Conference on Advanced Intelligent Mechatronics (AIM) is an offspring of the flagship Mechatronics journal, IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics.
