Workshop Overview
Biological walking systems can adaptively form their interlimb coordination for locomotion to deal with different situations. Neurophysiological studies have revealed that the adaptive coordination emerges from dynamical interactions of neural activities, plasticity, musculoskeletal systems, and the environment. Achieving this on legged robots remains a grand challenge. Thus our workshop "Bio-inspired control for interlimb coordination and adaptation in legged robots" at SWARM 2017 (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.ohk.hiroshima-2Du.ac.jp_SWARM2017_&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=FPBCFlaZhW5IE0g-MX64Rkm2Mv6G1Q1fxoUHpXntC5A&s=pgYycdKZqWEMLhFE44DEnfhmngP7RJV9-s-Xt7NKXPc&e=) will bring together leading experts, working in the domains of bio-inspired control of legged robots, to present their recent achievements on robot locomotion with adaptive interlimb coordination for speed-dependent adaptation, environment-dependent adaptation, body-dependent adaptation, and task-dependent adaptation. We will also discuss future directions to overcome this challenge.

We hope that you will be able to attend and look forward to seeing you in Kyoto, Japan!
