Message from the Chair
It gives me a great honor to introduce the “2014 15th International Workshop on Research and Education in
Mechatronics (REM)”. As an annual event since 1999, REM Workshop is 2-3 days covering the state of
the art, experiences, and new trends in the areas of research, applications and education in Mechatronics
(see http://mechatronics-net.de/rem_annual.html). It provides the opportunity to exchange experiences with
emerging methods and practical applications across the borders of the disciplines involved in
In association with the International Network of Mechatronics Universities (http://mechatronics-net.de/),
the Higher Technological Institute (HTI) (www.hti.edu.eg) is organizing this year workshop REM2014. It
will take place in El-Gouna, Red Sea, Egypt where excitingly beautiful breezy Nature meets warm
Pharaoh's ancient history to welcome world distinguished researchers, scientists, and successful industry and
business men working in the field of mechatronics.
The topics of REM2014 include: Mechatronics systems - Methodologies, Tools and languagesEducation
and learning- Industrial Applications and a Special Sessions in University/Industry Networking.
The special session aims at addressing the way to fill in the enormous gap between Industry and
Academia in countries like Egypt & Jordan. It should be noted that successfully presented papers will be
included in the REM2014 proceedings and also will be submitted to “IEEE Xplore”.
The REM2014 is hosted by the Higher Technological Institute (HTI), Tenth of Ramadan City, Egypt. HTI
has been established in 1988, as the first private university level Institute for engineering education in Egypt.
Now, more than eight thousand students enroll HTI in its three sites: Tenth of Ramadan city where the
main campus is, Sixth of October, and Marsa-Matruh. HTI introduces three main disciplines: Engineering,
Technological based business and Computer science. Engineering specializations are: Electrical, Mechanical,
Mechatronics, Automotive, Biomedical, Civil, Architecture, and Chemical Engineering.HTI committed itself
to offer high standard modern educational programs, promote scientific research and creative activities through
its faculty and students. It is also, establish strong relations between both academic and Industrial Institutions
and render professional services that meet the needs and circumstances of Egypt and the region.
Finally, on behalf of HTI, the local organizing committee, the international scientific advisory board, and
myself, I would like to express our appreciations and deep thanks to all authors and reviewers. Also our very
warm welcome to all participants and our best wishes for a pleasant and enjoyable stay in Egypt.
