UNDERSTANDING LOCOMOTION: NATURE-INSPIRED MATHEMATICAL MODELS
This online workshop focuses on unraveling locomotion mechanisms of biological systems like swimming, crawling or slithering.
The use of mathematical models provides a powerful tool to understand these mechanisms and to design artificial replicas for industrial or medical purposes.
The latest findings in the field are presented and discussed, and the dialogue between the mathematical and engineering communities is encouraged.
