  • AMAM2005: call for participation and last-minute-results abstracts

    AMAM2005, Sept 25-30 2005, Ilmenau,

    Dear Biomch-l suscribers,

    Researchers working on any aspect related to the adaptive control of
    movement and locomotion in animals and robots might be interested in
    participating to AMAM2005, the Third International Symposium on Adaptive
    Motion in Animals and Machines. The symposium will take place at the
    Technische Universit├Ąt Ilmenau, Germany, from September 25th to
    September 30th, 2005. The two previous symposia in Montreal and Kyoto,
    which brought together researchers in neurobiology, biomechanics, neural
    computation, and robotics, were very exciting and fruitful events.

    The program is now fixed, see , but there
    is the opportunity to submit an abstract to a special
    *"last-minute-results" poster session*, see the CFP below, and* to bring
    robots to participate to public robot demonstrations*, see (Robot Data Sheet link).

    To hold keynotes ("Basics & Advances in ...") we have confirmations from
    the following colleagues:

    Biology & Mechanics:
    *Roy Ritzmann*, Movement Through Complex Terrain: From Animals to
    Robots and Back I
    *Martin S. Fischer*, Movement Through Complex Terrain: From Animals
    to Robots and Back II
    Biology & Control:
    *Sten Grillner*, The Neural control of vertebrate locomotion - from
    ion channels to behavior
    *Auke Jan Ijspeert*, Pattern generators in the central nervous
    system: numerical models and applications to robotics
    *Werner Nachtigall*, Technical Biology - Basis for Bionical
    Realization (supported by BioKoN)
    *Rudolf Bannasch*, The German Bionics Competence Network "BioKoN"
    (supported by BioKoN)
    *Rolf Pfeifer*, Morphological computation: connecting body, brain
    and environment (supported by BioKoN)
    Robotics & Control:
    *Ruediger Dillmann*, Title to be announced
    *Vladimir V. Beletsky*, Regular and Chaotic Dynamics of Two-Legged
    Robotics & Mechanics:
    *Martin Buehler*, Legged Robots Step Outside
    *Fumiya Iida*, Cheap Design Approach to Adaptive Behavior: Walking
    and Sensing through Body Dynamics

    With best regards,

    Hartmut Witte, Hiroshi Kimura, and Auke Ijspeert on behalf of the AMAM
    organizing committee.

    Call for last-minute-results posters:_

    Researchers are invited to submit a one-page abstract describing their
    most recent results/developments. The call for abstracts is open to all
    (i.e. to people both with and without an accepted paper at the
    conference). There is a limit of one abstract/poster per participant as
    a first author. After a quick review by the conference chairs, authors
    of accepted abstracts will be invited to present their results as a
    poster in a special Last-Minute-Results session (short oral spotlight
    presentation + poster presentation). Note that the abstracts will not be
    included in the conference proceedings, but will be included in a
    special booklet. The* deadline for submission is September 10^th *, but
    can be submitted at any time from now on. We will try to review
    submissions and return a notification within one week. Please email your
    abstracts to
