The 2022 USCToMM Symposium on Mechanical Systems and Robotics (2022 USCToMM MSR Symposium) will be held Thursday through Saturday, May 19-21, 2022, at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology. The 2022 USCToMM Annual General Meeting will be held during the Symposium. Financial support is available through the IFToMM Young Delegates Program to assist early career and student researchers wishing to present their work at the symposium.

The symposium is designed to foster meaningful interactions and collaborations: single track, peer-reviewed papers, 20-minute presentations plus 10 minutes for Q & A allowing for substantial discussions, and a social program that fosters networking and collaborations among attendees including a Friday evening conference dinner at Mount Rushmore National Memorial in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. Papers should be submitted online through the paper management platform as PDF unsecured files formatted according to the Author Guidelines.

Topics: The USCToMM MSR Symposium welcomes submissions that address: Specialized Robotic Systems; Soft, Wearable & Origami Robotic Systems; Applications to Walking, Flying, Climbing, Ground, Underground, Swimming, & Space Systems; Human Rehabilitation & Performance Augmentation; Design and Analysis of Mechanisms & Machines, Human-Robot Collaborative Systems; Service Robotics; Mechanical Systems & Robotics Education; Commercialization of Mechanical Systems & Robotics; and related topics.

Proceedings: Published by Springer and indexed in Scopus, Ei Compendex and Web of Science.
