This conference will focus on biomechanical body models, bringing together scientists from neuroethology, physics simulation, machine learning, and the computer vision and graphics communities. Recent technological advances in automated behavior analysis, anatomical microscopy, simulation software and machine learning now enable detailed biomechanical simulations at the whole-body scale. Leveraging these advances, we aim to assess the state of the art, identify existing gaps, and catalyze an interdisciplinary community to address those gaps. The conference will include invited and selected talks, tutorials on cutting-edge techniques, and breakout discussions focused on individual model organisms and approaches. 

The meeting will begin at 1pm on the first day and end by 1pm on the last.

Applications are closed.

Please note: Because Janelia conferences are intentionally small and selective, we may not be able to accommodate all applicants. We strive for as broad a representation across labs as possible and therefore may limit participation to one person per group. Preference is given to applicants who are active researchers in the field and intend to present their work as a poster or selected talk.
