Dynamic Walking 2019 is the 14th annual conference on principles and concepts of legged locomotion. This single-track conference brings together academics and industry designers working in robotics, biomechanics, rehabilitation and bionics from around the world.

Principles and Concepts of Legged Locomotion

The aim of this meeting is to provide insight into the fundamental principles that underlie legged locomotion. Topics central to dynamic walking include energetics, stability and control, predictive principles and models, dynamic modeling, empirical data in a conceptual framework, and robot successes and failures. Participants include both academics (students and professors) and industry designers with a mixture of researchers studying human and animal legged locomotion and those designing walking robots.

To promote open sharing of information, the meetings are organized to provide as much interaction between participants as possible. The format is highly informal and fluid, with a single track of presentations and extensive time scheduled for interaction, brainstorming, and idea sharing.
