AMAM: Adaptive Motion in Animals and Machines
June 1-6, 2008, Cleveland, OH, USA
AMAM 2008 is the fourth international symposium dedicated to the neuromechanics, sensory perception, and intelligence behind adaptive movement in animals, and the modeling, analysis, and technical development of adaptive movement in animals and machines. Previous symposia were held in Montreal, Canada (2000); Kyoto, Japan (2003); and Ilmenau, Germany (2005).
The symposium will include a single track of keynote (evening), plenary, and invited seminar speakers, plus contributed oral presentations and poster sessions. We will also continue the tradition of a “Robot Zoo,” where researchers may demonstrate their latest machines.
Contributed oral presentation and poster abstracts are invited in all areas pertaining to adaptive motion in animals and machines. We especially encourage submission in the three main focus areas for AMAM 2008:
* Robotics and Intelligent Mechanics
* Neurobiology and Biomechanics of Movement Behavior
* Functional Electrical Stimulation
Confirmed speakers include:
Keynote/Plenary Seminar
