International Symposium on the Neuromechanics of Human Movement
4-6th October, 2016
Heidelberg, Germany
http://orb.iwr.uni-heidelberg.de/neuromechanics2016/

Deadline for (poster) abstract submissions: 30th April 2016
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 


:: Scope ::
The neuromechanics approach to the study of human movements involves an 
interdisciplinary combination of methods and knowledge from 
neuroscience, biomechanics and robotics. This symposium is aimed at 
promoting the dialogue between researchers from these fields.

Some of the topics related to this symposium are:
- Neuromechanics and its role in motor control
- Modeling of efferent and afferent pathways
- Neural and muscular synergies
- Neural control of multi-muscle, multi-joint movements
- Neuromuscular human-machine interfaces
- Neural control for robotics applications
- Translational research: From models/experiments to clinical applications

:: Invited Speakers ::
A total of 22 talks will be delivered by leading researchers in the 
fields of computational neuroscience, biomechanics, clinical gait 
analysis and rehabilitation robotics. The keynotes and oral sessions 
speakers list is available here: 
http://orb.iwr.uni-heidelberg.de/neuromechanics2016/speakers/

:: Format ::
The symposium is planned as a 2.5 day single-track event with a focused 
gathering of researchers and ample time for discussions in formal and 
informal settings. Total number of participants is limited to about 60, 
due to the venue facilities.
Funding for the symposium comes from the Klaus-Georg and Sigrid 
Hengtberger Foundation, in support of upcoming researchers at Heidelberg 
University. As far as possible, the symposium talks and posters will 
feature an equal distribution of senior and upcoming researchers.

:: Important Dates ::
Poster abstract submission deadline: 30th April, 2016
Notice of acceptance: 15th May, 2016
Online registration will open shortly after abstract acceptance.
