12th International Conference Mechatronic Systems and Materials 2016 – MSM2016


About Conference

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 15th International Conference Mechatronic Systems and Materials (MSM2020), which will be held in Bialystok – the capital of the so-called “Green Lungs of Poland”.

The MSM conference is the well-recognized event with its professional background, high scientific level and great opportunity to exchange scientific ideas and research experience during many formal and informal meetings.

The international conference on Mechatronic Systems and Materials (MSM2020) is the 15th MSM conference, which brings together scientists from spectrum of mechatronic systems and materials and also other related to them, i.e. robotics and automatic control, industry 4.0, computer science, smart materials with biomaterials and applications, and related fields. The conference provides an intense multidisciplinary forum for professionals, researchers, students and experts disseminating the latest developments in mechatronic systems and materials.  Contributions may range from practical applications to theoretical aspects.

Similarly to the MSM2016, the conference organizers will encourage debates in a friendly atmosphere and a social offer with a one-day excursion to the breathtaking places in Podlasie region. I hope that beautiful views will bring unforgettable impressions and give you a chance to relax!

I look forward to welcome you in Bialystok on July 1 – 3, 2020 at the 15th International Conference Mechatronic Systems and Materials (MSM2020).

Arkadiusz Mystkowski

Conference venue

The 15th International Conference on Mechatronic Systems and Materials will be hosted at the Bialystok University of Technology located in the Bialystok city centre.

Bialystok is the biggest city in the north eastern Poland as well as the educational and economic centre of the region called “the Green Lungs of Poland”. The city is spread out, with numerous parks, forests, and squares. The specific cultural climate of Bialystok is mainly due to the centuries old multinational and multi-religious tradition. The whole region is dotted with Catholic, Orthodox, Muslim and Jewish temples. The attendees of the MSM’2020 will have an opportunity to visit the most important Bialystok tourists attractions such as the Branicki’s Palace, the Equerry’s House from the 18th century, the City Hall, the modern Philharmonic Hall and sacral buildings, such as the neo-gothic cathedral of the Holy Virgin Mary, the 19th century Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker.

For more information about the city and the region please visit visitbialystok.com and wrotapodlasia.pl/en.


The attendees of the MSM’2020 are firmly invited to take part in the excursion: “The trail of the most breathtaking places in Podlasie”

The excursion will finish with a dinner at the ship cruise on the Augustow lakes.


1. Tykocin castle
The castle in Tykocin was reconstructed on the foundations of the 16th century royal castle of the King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania Sigismund II Augustus. Tykocin castle played an important role in Polish history. Poland’s highest award, the Order of the White Eagle was established, and much of the national arsenal was kept here. The site of 4 battles, the castle was ultimately damaged in the 18th century. In 2002, the castle was rebuilt in its old form, using historical documents to ensure an accurate recreation. Visitors can enjoy a tour of the castle interior, through the castle’s vaults, halls, and cloisters and the castle museum.

2. The Biebrza river valley
The route goes through the Biebrza river valley which is known for its Europe’s largest peat bogs and habitats for elks. It is a home to wolves, beavers and otter animals. The valley, with the unique variety of plants, birds and animals is a part of Biebrza National Park, which is the largest national park in Poland. The attendees of the MSM’2020 will walk on educational paths, climb watchtowers and observation platforms to admire beautiful Biebrza riverbed and nearby woodlands.

During the trip, the lunch will be placed in the heart of the Biebrza river valley (Goniądz, Bartlowizna restaurant).

3. Augustów
Augustów – a town surrounded by nine lakes and the vast Augustów Primeval Forest, which is one of the biggest forest complexes in Poland connected with the forests in Lithuania and Belarus. An aquatic capital city of a North-Eastern Poland, it is a perfect place for kayak rally, sailing, ship, catamaran or gondola cruises. Picturesque landscapes, clean air and water in lakes, relaxing pine-spruce forests, untouched nature and kind locals these are other attractions of Augustów. The attendees of the conference will take a ship cruise on the Augustów Canal and lakes through the canal lock in Przewięź and the Marian Shrine in Studzieniczna.
