The 2016 International Forum on Mechanical, Control and Automation (IFMCA 2016) has successfully taken place in Shenzhen, China, on December 30-31, 2016. A key aspect of this conference is the strong mixture of academia and industry. Prospective exhibitors from research laboratories and, in particular, industrialists and suppliers are invited to propose exhibitions and demonstrations. This allows for the free exchange of ideas and challenges faced by these two key stakeholders and encourage future collaboration between members of these groups. The conference will also foster cooperation among organizations and researchers involved in the merging fields and will provide in-depth technical presentations with ample opportunities for one-on-one discussions with the presenters. All papers, both invited and contributed, will be refereed by two or three referees. All papers included in this collection have undergone careful peer-review by international and domestic experts before being selected for publication.
The organization of a world-wide conference requires the efforts of many people. We would like to thank all whose activity and effort contributed to its success. Many thanks go to authors of the papers and speakers, reviewers, chairmen of the sessions, poster session commissioners, and members of the Organizational Committee and also of the International Program Committee who propagated the conference so widely in the world. We would like to wish all the conference participants fruitful debates and successful presentations and a nice stay in Shenzhen.
