Poster highlights sessions

The two poster highlights sessions will give an occasion to all the authors with an accepted abstract to briefly present their work. The presentations will be very short (strict limit 60 seconds). All the slides will be projected using our computer, and therefore need to be uploaded beforehand. The last delay for uploading the slide(s) is August 16th; we cannot guarantee to include any submissions received after this date.

To create your slide(s), please use the provided template. The template is in PPTX format, and can be opened with any compatible software (e.g. LibreOffice, PowerPoint, Keynote, etc.). Please note that given the amount of posters, we are not able to accept files submitted in any other format as they would require manual processing. The maximum file size for uploads is 20 MB.

The uploaded presentation should contain one or two slides (absolute maximum 3). Do not use any transition effects between slides, and avoid videos unless they are essential to present your work. To avoid distracting your audience, limit the amount of text in the slides.

If you have any questions or issues concerning the upload, please contact us.

Please use the provided template to create your slide(s). Submissions using a different layout wont be considered, or might be adapted.

Robot zoo submission

Investigating how animals and humans excel at adaptive movements can help engineers to improve the adaptive capabilities of robots. In return, robots can serve as scientific tools to explore the basic principles of biological systems, in particular the neuromechanical mechanisms underlying their fascinating motor abilities.

The Robot Zoo is the special demo session at AMAM 2019 where researchers can showcase their hardware (e.g., robots, prostheses or orthoses). Hardware demo proposals are invited from all areas pertaining to adaptive motion in animals and machines. Proposals can be stand-alone or linked to your existing poster presentation at AMAM 2019. Accepted demos will be presented during dedicated sessions at the symposium. Plenty of time will be dedicated for fruitful discussions among participants.

Application form

Submissions for the AMAM 2019 robot zoo will be accepted until June 15th.
