Dear Biomch-L subscribers,

The fourth Dynamic Walking conference will take place in Delft, the Netherlands, from May 26-29. This single track conference with a limited number of 90 participants will deal with all aspects of Dynamic Walking. We want to attract biomechanists, kinesiologists, roboticists, neurophysiologists and computer scientists with an interest in Dynamic Walking, to have many discussions about this exciting topic.

Everyone will either present a 15-min presentation or a poster. We ask all participants to submit a 2-page powerpoint summary of their intended presentation.

We organize 3 interactive tutorials (Limit cycle analysis, Human Gait Analysis and How to Build your own Passive Dynamic Walker), a tour to the Amsterdam Gait Labs and a visit to the workshop of the artist Theo Jansen.

For further information please visit the website:

Important dates:

* March 15: Registration deadline, including 2-page powerpoint summary of research

Kind regards,

The organizing committee
