Call For Papers

The Call for Papers / Invitation for Exhibitors open now! An additional print version will be mailed in early September 2017.

We request contributions to the 16th International Conference on New Actuators from engineers, scientists and other experts from institutes and companies working in the field of new actuators, low-power electromagnetic drives and their applications. For oral presentation (20 min. 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 on the abstract. 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 received by the organiser by uploading the files to the OpenConf System on our event homepage not later than 30 November 2017. All abstracts will be forwarded for review to the members of the committee, who will then decide on the acceptance as well as on the final assignment to topics and sessions.

Authors appointed for presentation will be informed by 31 January 2018 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 have to be uploaded to the event homepage by 31 March 2018. Proceedings of the conference containing the manuscripts of the oral presentations as well as the poster contributions will be issued in English. A digital version will be distributed to the conference participants at the check-in desk of the conference. A printed version is also available on subscription base.

For the first time, the digital version of the conference proceedings will be published by the VDE Verlag GmbH (VDE Publishing House).The manuscripts will also be included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library to ensure an international visibility and a high value for the citation index.

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 2018 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).
