           Legged Locomotion Robots

Special Session on ROBOT’2015 - The Second Iberian Robotics Conference


                       November 19-21, 2015

                         Lisbon, Portugal

Notification: July 31, 2015

Camera Ready: September 15, 2015


In recent years significant advances have been made in creating bio-inspired machines. Scientists and engineers use human and animal characteristics to achieve these goals, as even the most advanced robots are much inferior to their biological counterparts. Human and animal locomotion is much more versatile, efficient and elegant and, therefore, it is reasonable to consider studying biological systems in order to apply their schemes in the design and control of legged robots.

Bearing in mind these ideas, the purpose of this Special Session is to join together engineers, roboticists, researchers, and students to present and discuss new developments and innovative projects that are relevant to the session topics of legged locomotion robots.


Authors are invited to submit their work to this Special Session following the guidelines of Springer AISC template (http://www.springer.com/series/11156) up to a maximum of 12 pages through the EasyChair interface (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=robot2015).
