MuSMe2021 MuSMe 2021
7th International Symposium on Multibody Systems and Mechatronics


The prestigious Springer editorial will sponsor the Best Paper Awards of the MuSMe 2021!!!

The awards granted to the authors of the best papers will be classified into three categories:

  1. Research: The Best Research Paper Award recognizes significant achievement in Mechanism and Machine Science (MMS). The achievement must be an important advance upon which subsequent work has been built, or is expected to be built. It may be an invention, a development with theoretical contributions, or a software artefact.
  2. Application: The Best Application Paper Award recognizes a significant application of MMS. The application must be an important advance that has been applied with successful results in a practical implementation. It may be a methodology, a technique, a design solution, a research implementation with validated results, performances, and applicability that are demonstrated with real systems.
  3. Student: The Best Student Paper Award recognizes a significant achievement of a student-based work in MMS. The achievement must be an important result of student work upon which subsequent work has been built, or is expected to be built. It may be a result of a young author (preferably a PhD student) alone or a result of a team in which one or more young authors had an essential role. A certificate will be provided by the candidate(s) to state the student status and the relevance of the student contribution in the teamwork. A young author will be considered to be less than 35 years old.


Marco Ceccarelli - University of Rome Tor Vergata, Italy. (Chair)
