2nd International Symposium on Adaptive Motion of Animals and Machines
4-8 March 2003
Kyoto, Japan.

>From the website:

It is our dream to understand principles of animals' surprising abilities in
adaptive motion and to transfer such abilities on a robot. However, principles
of adaptation to various environments have not yet been clarified, and autonomous
adaptation is left unsolved as seriously difficult problem in robotics. Apparently,
the adaptation ability shown by animals and needed by robots in a real world can not
be explained or realized by one single function in control system and mechanism
That is, adaptation in motion is induced at every level in a wide spectrum from
central neural system to musculoskeletal system.

We are organizing AMAM2003 for scientists and engineers concerned with adaptation
on various levels to be brought in contact, to discuss on principles on each level
and to investigate principles governing total systems.
