[meetings] PKM 2016


Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce the organization of a spring school on Parallel Kinematic Manipulators in March 2016. It will be held in ‘La Grande Motte’ near Montpellier, France.

Location: Mercure La Grande Motte Port Hotel, La Grande Motte, France

Dates: 14 to 18 March 2016

Organizers: Ahmed Chemori (LIRMM, Montpellier), Olivier Company (LIRMM, Montpellier) and Sébastien Briot (IRCCYN, Nantes)

Website: http://www.lirmm.fr/pkm-2016/

The aim of this spring school is to share the knowledge on parallel kinematics manipulator design, modelling and control during a whole week, targeting PKM prototype design and control, and facing problems met in industrial applications.

The courses are divided in lectures, plenary lectures, simulation and experiment labs. They are addressed to PhD students, post-docs and researchers already involved in the area or interested in parallel kinematic machines.
