Young researchers event @MIT in USA.

If you think to join this workshop,
please email <matsushita(at)robot.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp> ASAP.

*** I mean, please contact me before you submit your abstract!!! ***

I inform you an event for young reseachers taking place at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston USA on April 27&28th. This workshop aims to bring together young researchers to discuss their work, talk about the upcoming important issues in the field of legged locomotion. This will consist of laboratory tours on the first day and a one-day workshop (a mixture of selected talks and poster sessions) on the second day.

The purpose of this event is to have internationally interdisciplinary discussions during the event in the area of legged locomotion robotics.

This event consists of two part:

- Laboratory Tours at MIT
- Young Researchers Workshop on  Legged Locomotion Robotics

The major topic of the workshop is Legged Locomotion Robotics:

- biped / quadruped robots (passive dynamic walker, ZMP based robot, etc.)
- motion / gait / balance contorl (CPG, ZMP, etc)
- power assist, prosthetic leg, walking assist device.
