    Call for Abstracts and Participation: AMAM08

    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
    * *Seminar

    * Hajime Asama
    * Ansgar Buschges
    * Paolo Dario
