  • Latest computational methods used in kinematics
  • Offers solutions for┬áproblems in areas such as kinematic design and synthesis, motion analysis and synthesis, mechanism design, kinematical analysis of robots and parallel manipulators, kinematical issues in biomechanics, molecular kinematics, computer animation and interpolation of kinematical motion, etc
  • Sponsored by IFToMM

Computational kinematics is an enthralling area of science with a rich spectrum of problems at the junction of mechanics, robotics, computer science, mathematics, and computer graphics. The covered topics include design and optimization of cable-driven robots, analysis of parallel manipulators, motion planning, numerical methods for mechanism calibration and optimization, geometric approaches to mechanism analysis and design, synthesis of mechanisms, kinematical issues in biomechanics, construction of novel mechanical devices, as well as detection and treatment of singularities.

The results should be of interest for practicing and research engineers as well as Ph.D. students from the fields of mechanical and electrical engineering, computer science, and computer graphics.
