The aim of this meeting is to help advance the understanding of two-legged dynamic walking. Some questions to be addressed include:
  1. How can we predict how people or animals will move from basic principles?
  2. How can we build more-stable and more-energy-effective legged robots
  3. What data do we have that reveals or refutes important principles or concepts in animal, human or robotic legged locomotion?
