Welcome message

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of IEEE/ASME AIM 2023, we would cordially invite you to the 2023 IEEE/ASME International Conference on Advanced Intelligent Mechatronics (AIM), being held on June 27-July 1 (Tue-Sat), 2023, in Seattle, Washington, USA. The conference will highlight advanced intelligent mechatronics systems expecting their promising contribution to our society. As the 26th AIM conference, AIM 2023 is co-sponsored by IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS), IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES), and ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Division (DSCD). Our goal is to provide a platform to discuss, stimulate, and celebrate the state-of-art, frontier developments, discovery, and innovations in mechatronics, robotics, automation, and related areas. We look forward to your participation and seeing you in Seattle in June 2023!

Respectfully yours,
Santosh Devasia, General chair

Silver Sponsor: The Boeing Advanced Research Center

The Boeing Advanced Research Center (BARC) represents a new paradigm in the execution of industrial research at the University of Washington. BARC is housed in the Mechanical Engineering Department but faculty and students from many Departments in the Colleges of Engineering and Arts and Sciences collaborate in the research. Boeing-employed affiliate instructors work in the lab side by side with faculty and students on joint research projects in the manufacturing and assembly of aircraft and spacecraft structures. Our goal is to foster collaborative basic and applied research, translational research and development and student education-related activities. The focus of current BARC projects include Big Data/Machine Learning, Ergonomics and Safety, Advanced Composites, and Additive Manufacturing.
