[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Interdisciplinary Summer School "Humans in Motion" - Deadline extension

Katja Mombaur-2
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Interdisciplinary Summer School
Humans in Motion - Der Mensch in Bewegung
Perspectives from Sciences, Technology and Humanities
23 – 28 September, 2018
at Heidelberg University, Germany
organized by the Heidelberg Center for Motion Research (HCMR) and
Marsilius Kolleg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Scope:

Human Motion is investigated within various scientific fields, such as
Biomechanics, Sports Science, Robotics, Psychology, Philosophy,
Medicine, Mathematics & Computer Science. The Summer School aims at
bringing together junior and senior scientists from these fields to
study and discuss their mutual methodology to create synergies and
establish an interdisciplinary view on the matter. It is designed to
give students at advanced MSc and PhD level as well as young PostDocs an
insight on different approaches used for acquisition and analysis of
human motion as well as on the theoretical background of motion and
embodiment in general.


Topics will include

- Acquisition, representation and quantitative analysis of human motion
- Dynamic modeling of anthropomorphic systems
- Offline and online optimal control methods for human motion analysis
- Phenomenology of living motion
- The role of motion in psychotherapy
- Movement and meaning / spatial embodiment
- Quantitative assessment of movement in sports science
- The role of pain in human motion
- Mathematical modeling of neural and muscle activity
- Motion perception in infants and their neurological foundations

Speakers:

Confirmed speakers are

- Francesco Nori (Public Keynote), Head of Robotics, Google DeepMind
- Robin Bekrater-Bodmann, Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience, Central
Institute of Mental Health, Mannheim
- Markus Buchner, Motion and Training group, Institute for Sports
Science, Heidelberg University
- Herta Flor, Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience, Central Institute of

- Johannes P. Schlöder, Simulation and Optimization Group, IWR,
Heidelberg University
- Knut Schnell, Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Asklepios Clinic for
Psychiatry and Psychotherapy Göttingen

Organization:

The school will include lectures, tutorials, computer exercises, a
poster session and free time slots for individual scientific exchange
among the participants and speakers. The registration fee of EUR 300
includes accommodation from September 23 to September 29 in twin rooms,
all meals except dinner on the two free evenings and the conference
dinner at the Heidelberg castle. Depending on availability, single rooms
can be provided for a surcharge. For students from institutions with no
funding possibility, the participation fee can be reduced upon
application in a very limited number of cases.


Participation:

The school is open to PhD students and senior MSc students as well as
young PostDocs. Due to space limitations, the applicants will be
selected based on their application. Interested students are invited to
submit a short application including a letter of motivation, an abstract
(500 words) for the poster session and a CV on the summer school website:
