It is our pleasure to announce the fourth European Computational Motor Control Summer School, which will take place at the Mas des Violettes, a very pleasant southern French countryside setting near Montpellier, from Sunday June 7th to Saturday June 13th, 2020.

New topics in 2020: robotics for locomotion and human/machine learning

The long-term goal of this summer school is to promote the field of Computational Motor Control and Learning in Europe.

The prime target applicants are PhD students and post-doctoral fellows, but applications from junior researchers will also be considered. No knowledge of computational motor control, or motor control, is necessary to attend. However, students are expected to know Matlab and at least basics of linear algebra and differential equations. Some knowledge in systems neuroscience would be preferable. Each student will need to bring his/her laptop.

ECMC is made possible by grants from JSPS KAKENHI Grant to the co-organizer Yasuharu Koike, and from the multidisciplinary NUMEV initiative in Montpellier.
Other sponsors include the Division of Physical Therapy and Biokinesiology at the University of Southern California, and the Euromov laboratory of the University of Montpellier.
