Engineers, scientists and other experts from institutes and companies working in the field of new actuators, low-power electromagnetic drives and their applications are invited to contribute to the 14th International Conference on New Actuators. For oral presentation (20 mins incl. discussion), preference will be given to contributions expressing a comprehensive view of the chosen subject. Please note that detailed theoretical contributions and papers of a very specialised nature are more suitable for the poster exhibition.
The conference contributions will be compiled after the evaluation of the abstracts received in response to this Call for Papers. For this purpose, we expect high-quality abstracts of 400 to 600 words in English language, clearly describing the suggested content. They must quote the caption, the name(s) of author(s) and institution(s). The name of the author appointed for presentation should be marked by a "*" behind his last name, and the preferred kind of presentation (oral or poster) should be specified. Abstracts not rateable will be rejected.
Additionally, we would like to publish a short abstract (10 lines/500 characters) of each contribution on our event homepage. Both abstracts need to be transferred to the organiser by uploading the files to the OpenConf Abstract and Peer-Review Management System not later than 30 November 2013. All abstracts will be submitted for review to the members of the committee, who will then decide on the acceptance as well as on the assignment to topics and sessions. We have compiled detailed Guidelines OpenConf for submitters and reviewers.
Authors appointed for presentation will be informed by 31 January 2014 as to whether their paper has been accepted for oral presentation or poster session. They will receive detailed instructions on suitable data formats and the layout of text and pictures for the final version of their manuscript. The final scripts should be submitted to the organiser by 31 March 2014 by upload.
Proceedings of the conference containing the manuscripts of oral presentations as well as the poster contributions will be issued in English. A CD-ROM version will be distributed to the conference participants at the check-in desk of the conference. A printed version in available for an extra charge.
Exhibitors and other parties interested in contributing to the Exhibition Forum are asked to send a short English abstract of about 200 words by 31 March 2014 marked with the keyword "Exhibition Forum". These contributions should be related to the exhibition topics and will not be published in the conference proceedings. Non-exhibitors will be charged a separate fee of EUR 150 (plus VAT).
