Dear Colleagues,

The 4th Asia International Symposium on Mechatronics (AISM) will be held on December 15-18, 2010, in Singapore. AISM is a biannual conference with the 1st, 2nd and 3rd one held in China in 2004, Hong Kong in 2006, and Japan in 2008. Mechatronics is an ever-widening field involving actuators/sensors, electronics/mechanics, computing, controls, system design/integration, and beyond. The aim of the symposium is to promote the research, development and application in this field by bringing together researchers and practitioners in this multidisciplinary field to stimulate new ideas, to share knowledge in practical problems and solutions, as well as to facilitate cooperation for the future.

The scope of the Symposium includes, but is not limited to, the following:
Modeling and Design

Instrumentation, Measurement and Control Mechatronics in Manufacturing and Automation Micro-and Nano-Mechatronics Medical Mechatronics Different Applications

All the papers published in the conference will be indexed at Crossref with doi assigned by default.  Apart from this, the publication will be submitted to all the major subject specific indexers for possible inclusion which includes, Elseviers' Scopus, Engineering Village EI, Compdex and ISI Thomson's Web of Science.

Important Date:

31 July 2010  Full Paper Submission

15 Sept 2010  Notification of Acceptance of Full Paper

15 Oct 2010  Final (Camera-Ready) Paper Submission

15 Oct 2010  Early Registration

From 28 June - 2 July, the DHO Summer School in Dublin lectured, facilitated and motivated through a series of innovative workshops and talks, offering digital humanities scholars the opportunity to empower their own research.  Attendees from twelve countries on three continents explored new ways to approach their own work and share their experience with their peers.

The audience was captivated with Dr. Hugh Denard's cutting edge demonstration of the ways in which researchers at the King's Visualisation Lab are using software platforms such as Second Life to engage in the study of classical surroundings by experiencing them in a virtual environment. Dr. Ian Gregory demonstrated the close engagement between spatial representation and traditional historical research sources such as newspapers and manuscript census records in a compelling narrative. Four day strands in text encoding, XSLT transformation, image and data visualisation provided hands-on and theoretical presentations of forward-looking techniques in these core digital humanities skillsets.

An exciting series of one-day workshops provided attendees with an added opportunity to explore areas of interest in diverse subjects such as virtual worlds, Irish digital resources, academic publishing, data modelling and geospatial methods. An unforgettable evening of harp entertainment was provided by Drs Emily and Benita Cullen, captivating all and creating a truly magical experience.  This year's school built on past success and added new components such as a coffee and consultation session as well as new ventures into geospatial and virtual worlds that proved very popular.

The DHO thank all of those who attended, as well as the superb group of scholars who lent their expertise to deliver a world-class event. A gallery of photos http://dho.ie/node/695  from the summer school is available at: http://dho.ie/node/695

Kind regards,
