View Full Version : Angular Momentum in Human Movement (Call for paper IROS 2011)

03-08-2011, 01:05 PM
IROS 2011 (http://www.iros2011.org/) will feature a series of special
symposia to celebrate the achievements of the last fifty years of robotics
and to articulate a vision for the future of the field. One of the symposia
will be on "Biped Locomotion".

Within this symposium, the following two sessions have been confirmed so far:

1. Angular Momentum in Dynamic Movements: Biomechanics, Animation and Robotics
The interest in linear and angular momentum for motion management has been
growing relatively independently in the domains of biomechanics, computer
animation and robotics. We will bring together researchers from these three
fields so that there is a concerted focus on this topic and a free exchange of ideas.
This session will consist of three 30-minute invited talks, each from an
expert in one of the fields:
1) Biomechanics (Hugh Herr, MIT)
2) Computer Animation (Victor Zordan, UC Riverside)
3) Robotics (Shuuji Kajita, AIST, Japan).

2. Angular Momentum and Momentum Based Control
This session will consist of 6 paper presentations of 15 minutes duration
each. We solicit papers from all fields: biomechanics, computer animation
and robotics. We will work with the conference program committee to
organize the final structure of the session. We look forward to your
contributions for IROS 2011, Biped Locomotion Special Symposium.

The deadline for submission is March 14, 2011.
Submission details can be found at: http://www.iros2011.org/cfp
