MACRo 2011 Poster Session

The MACRo 2011 Organizing Committee invites submissions for Poster Session, at the 3rd International Conference on Recent Achievements in Mechatronics, Automation, Computer Science and Robotics, to be held on April 8-9 2011, in Tîrgu Mureş, Romania. Some of the submitted full papers might be accepted only as a poster presentation, but poster papers are also solicited. The Poster Session will run in parallel with the Industrial Reality Session, located in the University Aula.

Poster presenters will be expected to be present during the Conference in order to explain their poster and to present any supplemental material. Attendees will browse among the posters and speak directly with the presenters. The poster session is intended to be informal, conversational.

Current Advances in Biomedical Engineering - special session

Topics of this special session will address problems in:

biomedicine, physiology and biology relating to model formulation, identification and validation;

• signal and image processing, analysis and interpretation;

• developments in measurement, modeling, simulation and visualization of biomedical system;

• decision support and control.

Industrial reality - parallel session

Industry vendors are kindly encouraged to sustain presentation in the University Aula during the conference, on April 8. Exposition stand (desk, chairs, poster wall) is available on request .

The official language of the Conference is English.

Industry vendors are also encouraged to present their job opportunities in help of graduating students.

For presentations and/or exposition there are no fees, but even so, the organizing committee shall be grateful for any sponsorship. The sponsoring company logo, short presentation and web link will be posted on Conference website and in the Conference Proceedings .
