    Extension of abstract submission deadline to May 16th, 2016
    International Symposium on the Neuromechanics of Human Movement
    4-6 October 2016, Heidelberg, Germany

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Due to several requests the abstract submission deadline for Neuromechanics 2016 has been extended to May 16th, 2016.

    Based on the submissions so far, the symposium promises to provide a very interesting cross-section of topics from neuroscience, biomechanics and robotics. I look forward to your additional contributions!

    Reminder: Approaching abstract submission deadline, 30th April 2016
    International Symposium on the Neuromechanics of Human Movement
    4-6 October 2016, Heidelberg, Germany

    Researchers working in neuromechanics are invited to submit their work to the Neuromechanics 2016 symposium: http://orb.iwr.uni-heidelberg.de/neu...t-submissions/

    If you are interested in attending the symposium (you really should! Here are 18 excellent reasons why: http://orb.iwr.uni-heidelberg.de/neu...2016/speakers/ ), it is strongly recommended to submit a contribution.

    Please note that the maximum number of participants is limited, and if places fill up, preference will be given those presenting. Researchers are welcome to present their work as posters, or fill the few remaining speaker slots (please indicate your preference during submission).

    As an added incentive, selected high quality abstracts will be invited to submit full length papers to the newly established journal research topic titled:

    "Neuromechanics and Control of Physical Behavior: from Experimental and Computational Formulations to Bio-inspired Technologies".

    The research topic is edited by Massimo Sartori, Manish Sreenivasa, Alfred Schouten, Matthew Tresch, Yoshihiko Nakamura and Francisco Valero-Cuevas, and appears in the journals Frontiers in Computational Neuroscience, and, Frontiers in Neurorobotics: journal.frontiersin.org/researchtopic/4698

    International Symposium on the Neuromechanics of Human Movement
    4-6th October, 2016
    Heidelberg, Germany
    http://orb.iwr.uni-heidelberg.de/neuromechanics2016/

    Deadline for (poster) abstract submissions: 30th April 2016
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    :: Scope ::
    The neuromechanics approach to the study of human movements involves an interdisciplinary combination of methods and knowledge from neuroscience, biomechanics and robotics. This symposium is aimed at promoting the dialogue between researchers from these fields.

    Some of the topics related to this symposium are:
    - Neuromechanics and its role in motor control
    - Modeling of efferent and afferent pathways
    - Neural and muscular synergies
    - Neural control of multi-muscle, multi-joint movements
    - Neuromuscular human-machine interfaces
    - Neural control for robotics applications
    - Translational research: From models/experiments to clinical applications

    :: Invited Speakers ::
    A total of 22 talks will be delivered by leading researchers in the fields of computational neuroscience, biomechanics, clinical gait analysis and rehabilitation robotics. The keynotes and oral sessions speakers list is available here: http://orb.iwr.uni-heidelberg.de/neu...2016/speakers/

    :: Format ::
    The symposium is planned as a 2.5 day single-track event with a focused gathering of researchers and ample time for discussions in formal and informal settings. Total number of participants is limited to about 60, due to the venue facilities.
    Funding for the symposium comes from the Klaus-Georg and Sigrid Hengstberger Foundation, in support of upcoming researchers at University of Heidelberg. As far as possible, the symposium talks and posters will feature an equal distribution of senior and upcoming researchers.

    :: Important Dates ::
    Poster abstract submission deadline: 30th April, 2016
    Notice of acceptance: 15th May, 2016
    Online registration will open shortly after abstract acceptance.

    :: Symposium Organizer ::
