July 1, 2011 Submission of Papers
October 11-14, 2011 Symposium in Awaji Island
Understanding mechanism for adaptive behavior of animals helps us 
realizing adaptive
behavior of machines, and experimenting on machines to realize adaptive 
behavior helps
us to find new view on biological systems. These two approaches are "two 
wheels of a cart"
to understand the essence of adaptive intelligence. AMAM 2011 is the 
fifth international
symposium dedicated on the interaction among researchers of such 
interdisciplinary field.
They are covering neuromechanics, neurophysiology, biomechanics, 
robotics, brain science,
and other field related to adaptive behavior of animals and machines. 
Previous symposia
were held in Montreal, Canada (2000); Kyoto, Japan (2003); Ilmenau, 
Germany (2005); and
Cleveland, USA (2008).

Accepted papers are presented in poster sessions to encourage the 
interaction. Plenary
talks and some selected papers through the review process will be 
presented in oral
sessions in a single track. We also schedule publishing a proceeding 
book based on
recommendation of reviewers. We will have exciting laboratory bus tour 
to Osaka and Kobe
Universities demonstrating the recent development of adaptive robots.

Abstract contributions are invited from all areas pertaining to adaptive 
motion in animals and
machines. Visit the following link to find more about AMAM 2011. We are 
very much
looking forward to seeing you soon.
