2019 Oct 23 - 25

Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, OK


The Mechatronics Conference and Workshop will be held 2019 Oct 23 - 25 at OklahomaState University, Stillwater, OK. The conference and workshop are motivated by the demand of the next generation multi-disciplinary workforce in industries. This conference is intended to bring together academic professionals and industry in mechatronics, robotics, and other electromechanical/electrohydraulic fields to provide the participants an opportunity to stay up to date with the incredible dynamic growth in the Mechatronics field. Keynotes from academia and specialized industry professionals, technical sessions, and the post-conference workshops are designed to benefit a wide range of participants including educators teaching mechatronics, robotics, dynamics, and control courses, graduate and undergraduate students seeking academic careers in mechatronics and robotics, and industry professionals desiring to shape the future workforce. Nevertheless, the conference will provide an excellent opportunity for the participants to develop relationships with peers from academia and industry and network with product distributors and manufacturers. Coupled with this conference there will be several workshops for hands-on learning opportunities in the field of mechatronics. Early registration is encouraged to take advantage of workshops. Conference seating is limited.

Keynotes

Research and Education at the Convergence of Frontier Technologies

By Prof. Vikram Kapila

This talk will review the trajectory of  education and research activities that began with control technology, transitioned to mechatronics, evolved into robotics, and now has led to convergence research on frontier technologies (robotics, AI, AR/VR, and blockchain).

Vikram Kapila is a Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at NYU Tandon School of Engineering, where he directs a Mechatronics, Controls, and Robotics Laboratory; a Research Experience for Teachers Site in Mechatronics and Entrepreneurship; a DR K-12 and an ITEST STEM education research project; all funded by NSF. His research interests are in control system technology, mechatronics, robotics, and STEM education, with current focus on research @ the convergence of frontier technologies (e.g., robotics, AI, AR/VR, blockchain, among others). He is an author or co-author of more than 220 peer-reviewed scholarly publications, including edited books, book chapters, journal papers, and conference proceeding articles. He has received five teaching awards and a leadership award, all at NYU Tandon. Moreover, he is a recipient of 2014-2015 University Distinguished Teaching Award at NYU. He directs K-12 education, training, mentoring, and outreach programs that annually enrich the STEM education of over 1,000 students.
