AMAM 2019, Adaptive Motion in Animals and Machines, Aug 19-23 2019, 
EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland


Mark the date and first call for abstracts

Investigating how animals and humans excel at adaptive movements can 
help engineers to improve the adaptive capabilities of robots. In 
return, robots can serve as scientific tools to explore the basic 
principles of biological systems, in particular the neuromechanical 
mechanisms underlying their fascinating motor abilities. AMAM 2019 is 
the 9th international symposium dedicated to stimulate fruitful 
interactions among biologists and engineers interested in adaptive 
motion. It aims at bringing together researchers in robotics, 
biomechanics, neuroscience, sports science, and other fields related to 
motor behavior in biological and artificial systems. Previous symposia 
were held in Montreal, Canada (2000); Kyoto, Japan (2003); Ilmenau, 
Germany (2005); Cleveland, USA (2008); Awaji, Japan (2011); Darmstadt, 
Germany (2013); Cambridge, USA (2015); and Sapporo, Japan (2017).

Abstract contributions are invited from all areas pertaining to adaptive 
motion in animals and machines. Accepted abstracts are presented in 
either oral or poster sessions based on assessed suitability by the 
program committee. Invited talks and some selected speakers will be 
presented in oral sessions in a single track. We also encourage 
participants to contribute hardware demonstrations, as part of the 
‘Robot Zoo’@AMAM2019.
