German-French Winter School on Humanoid and Legged Robots
The German-French Conference on Humanoid and Legged Robots 2016
Date: from 5th to 7th December 2016
Scope of the winter school:
The construction of humanoid and bipedal robots based on humans and legged animals, is a complex, interdisciplinary and rapidly evolving research field. There are diverse scientific challenges in designing a robot that can walk, run, jump, and move in a robust manner similar to its biological counterpart. Technical applications of such robots are expected in the near future in fields ranging from service robotics (households, public or industrial environments, hazardous sites) to medical robotics (neuro-prosthetics, exo-skeletons etc). This year conference will have a special focus on last year DARPA Robotics Challenge.
This conference aims to bring together leading researchers from France, Germany and US to hold technical talks and discussions on the topics related to Humanoid and Legged Robots.
HLR 2016 is the follow-up of four successful German-French HLR Conferences in Heildelberg in 2014, Karlsruhe in 2006, in Paris in 2011 and in Metz 2004.
