Form and function of motion systems: new approaches, new opportunities, new challenges
September 9–10, 2019 | Room will be announced
The "Fachgruppe Morphologie" is happy to announce a satellite meeting on form and function of motion systems to discuss the development of movement related science and improve exchange between the scientific disciplines. The keynote speakers are renowned experts in integrative biology, but use different animal groups or approaches to tackle down broader functional and evolutionary questions. Integrative biology with focus on movement systems provides a key interface between otherwise well separated scientific disciplines. Thus, animal movement can be and is examined from morphological, behavioral, biomechanical, physiological, phylogenetical, engineering, and many more perspectives. This satellite aims to bring together young ambitious as well as advanced established scientists. With many of us using new digital techniques producing vast quantities of data; we want to discuss the value of this data rush with respect to knowledge gain and risks, as well as how to find a good balance between depth of detail and abstraction.
