General registration is now open for Dynamic Walking 2013, which will

be held at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, USA on June

10-13, 2013.


Dynamic Walking aims to provide insight into the fundamental

principles that underlie legged locomotion and related dynamic

behaviors. Central topics include energetics, stability and control,

predictive models, empirical data with a conceptual tie in, and robot

successes and failures. Participants are split about evenly between

students and professors, with a mix of researchers studying legged

locomotion and designing walking robots and rehabilitation tools. To

promote open sharing of information, the meetings are organized to

provide as much interaction between participants as possible. The

format is highly informal and fluid, with a single track of

presentations and extensive time scheduled for interaction,

brainstorming and idea sharing. The schedule includes many hands-on

tutorials and hardware demonstrations. For more information, please
