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,
(2003); and Ilmenau, Germany

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
