****************Second Call for Papers****************
3rd International Symposium on Adaptive Motion in Animals and Machines AMAM 2005
will take place at
Technische Universitšt Ilmenau, Germany, September 25th - September 30th, 2005.
Deadline for abstract submission: February 28^th , 2005.
Please find details and the first Call for Papers at: http://www.tu-ilmenau.de/amam
On behalf of the International Organizing Committee under the guidance of Prof. Kazuo Tsuchiya (Kyoto, Japan), it is our pleasure to cordially invite you to take part in this symposium.
It is our dream to understand principles of animals' surprising abilities in adaptive motion and to transfer such abilities on a robot. However, principles of adaptation to various environments have not yet been clarified, and autonomous adaptation is left unsolved as a seriously difficult problem in robotics. Apparently, the adaptation ability shown by animals and needed by robots in a real world can not be explained or realized by one single function in the control system. That is, adaptation is induced at multiple levels in a wide spectrum from the central neural system to the musculo-skeletal system.
We are organizing AMAM 2005 for scientists and engineers concerned with adaptation on various levels to be brought in contact, to discuss principles on each level and to investigate principles governing total systems.
Some topics of particular interest to guide prospective contributors are:
* Visual Adaptation Mechanisms of Systems in Locomotion * Sensory-Motor Coordination in Locomotion * Neuro-Mechanics * Locomotion of Animals * Behaviour (Locomotion and Idiomotion) of Mammals, esp. Primates, esp. Humans and Humanoids * Embodied Intelligence in Locomotion * Non-linear Dynamics in Locomotion * Adaptive Mechanics * Modeling and Analysis of Motion * Prostheses, Ortheses and Rehabilitation * Evolution of Adaptive Motion (Phylogenesis) * Ontogenesis of Adaptive Motion (from Learning to De-learning, Development and Ageing) * Technical Development of Mechanism and Control for Adaptive Motion
Prof. H. Kimura, Tokyo (Japan) Prof. A.J. Ijspeert, Lausanne (Switzerland) Prof. Hartmut Witte, Ilmenau (Germany)
