Registration is now open for Society of Experimental Biology Conference, Seville, Spain, 2-5th July 2019. Consider submitting an abstract to our symposium on “Sensory and mechanical factors underlying stable and agile control of legged locomotion”. For more details on the symposium see:

Keynote speakers at this symposium include:

  • Kiisa Nishikawa (Northern Arizona University, USA) - Biological actuation in human engineered devices
  • James Finley (University of Southern California, USA) - The costs and benefits of asymmetry during healthy and pathological gait
  • Amir Patel (University of Cape Town, South Africa) - Towards an understanding of the cheetah tail using optimal control
  • Charlotte Le Mouel (Computational Neuroscience of Sensory Systems, Institut de la Vision, France) - Learning to adjust body mechanics for efficient and versatile gait initiation

Abstract deadline is midnight (GMT) on 15th March 2019. To submit your abstract please follow this link: Apply for a travel grant to attend SEB Seville as well, all details available on the conference website:

We look forward to seeing many of you there!
