6th International Symposium on Adaptive Motion in Animals and Machines 
March 11-14, 2013, Darmstadt, Germany


The organizing team (Lauflabor Locomotion Lab, IAS - intelligent 
autonomous systems - and SIM - simulation system optimization and 
robotics group) at the Technische Universität Darmstadt enthusiastically 
invites you to participate in the AMAM 2013 Symposium, to be held March 
11-14, 2013, at the Lichtenberg Haus, Darmstadt, Germany. This meeting 
is supported and is organized within the framework of the EU project 
Locomorph (www.locomorph.eu).

Scope and aims of the meeting:
Understanding adaptive motion in humans and animals can help to improve 
the adaptive behavior of machines. On the other hand, experiments with 
technical devices that adapt to a changing environment can shed more 
light on the basic principles of biological systems. We believe that 
such a bidirectional approach is essential to incorporate biological 
"intelligence" in machines. With the AMAM 2013 meeting we encourage 
researchers from different fields to interact and exchange ideas in this 
interdisciplinary field. For a list of the preceding AMAM meetings, 
please visit:

The AMAM is a medium-size meeting (typically 60-120 participants). We 
aim at creating a stimulating atmosphere for intense interactions and 
fruitful discussions amongst participants. Ideally, by the 
interdisciplinary character of the symposium, participants widen their 
perspective and get stimulated for new ideas and approaches that lead to 
advancements in the field of adaptive motions of animals and machines.

We invite to submit short abstracts for oral presentation, poster 
presentation and hardware demonstration (for details please visit 
www.amam2013.org). Additionally, suggestions for tutorials on topics 
related to adaptive motions in biology and robotics are very welcome.

Scientific board:
Koh Hosoda, Auke Ijspeert, Hiroshi Kimura, Roy Ritzmann, Josef Schmitz, 
Andre Seyfarth, Hartmut Witte

Important Dates / Deadlines:

Abstracts submission (for talk/poster/hardware presentation/proposal for 
tutorial): 30 November 2012.

Acceptance notification: 31 December 2012

Extended abstract submission: 31 January 2013

Early Registration: 31 January 2013
Final Registration: 28 February 2013

Please forward this announcement to colleagues who may be interested in 
attending this symposium. Looking forward to seeing you in Darmstadt in
