Principles and analysis of small, high acceleration systems in biology and synthetic systems.

January 3, 1:00-5:00 pm - Location TBD

This workshop is affiliated with the symposium "Playing with Power: Mechanisms of Energy Flow in Organismal Movement". Small, high acceleration systems that can be used repeatedly and repeatably are iconic in biology and still largely out of reach in synthetic systems. This workshop will bring together multidisciplinary, multi-stage researchers to learn, debate and plan a visionary and coherent approach to studying these systems. We will examine the conceptual foundation of small, fast movement and probe the current technical barriers to key measurements and analyses.

Space in this workshop is limited. If you are interested in attending, please contact Jeffrey Olberding (olberdij@uci.edu ) before November 1, 2018.
