    The Dynamic Walking Conference concerns the fundamental principles underlying legged locomotion (and, more generally, other dynamic movements) of humans, other animals and robots. The conference brings together researchers studying human and animal locomotion and those that design and build legged robots, prosthetic devices, and exoskeletons. Central topics include predictive principles for dynamic movement, stability and control, optimality (or lack thereof), energetics, novel experimental data (ideally with a conceptual tie-in or unexpected results), robot successes and failures, and system-identification/simulation/optimization/estimation techniques.

    To promote the open sharing of information, the meeting is organized to provide as much interaction between participants as possible. The format is informal, with a single track of oral presentations of varying durations, interactive poster sessions (many with mini-talks), hardware demonstrations, and tutorials.
