Bicycle & Motorcycle Dynamics 2019

The fourth triennial international three-day symposium on bicycle and motorcycle dynamics, BMD 2019, will be held at the University of Padova, Italy, September 9-11, 2019. The aim of this symposium is to bring together leading scientists and researchers in the field of bicycle and motorcycle dynamics and control, in a broad sense.

Topics include but are not limited to: bicycles, motorcycles, unicycles, modelling, kinematics and dynamics, control, human control, rider properties, handling qualities, tires, experiments, aerodynamics, simulators, nonholonomic dynamics, robot riders, path following.

For an open sharing of information, the meeting is organized to provide as much interaction between participants as possible. The format is informal and fluid, with a single track of presentations and extensive time scheduled for interaction, and the forming and sharing of ideas. In addition there will be room for poster presentations.
