About these proceedings


This is the proceedings of IFToMM CK 2017, the 7th International Workshop on Computational Kinematics that was held in Futuroscope-Poitiers, France in May 2017.

Topics treated include: kinematic design and synthesis, computational geometry in kinematics, motion analysis and synthesis, theory of mechanisms, mechanism design, kinematical analysis of serial and parallel robots, kinematical issues in biomechanics, molecular kinematics, kinematical motion analysis and simulation, geometric constraint solvers, deployable and tensegrity structures, robot motion planning, applications of computational kinematics, education in computational kinematics, and theoretical foundations of kinematics.

Kinematics is an exciting area of computational mechanics and plays a central role in a great variety of fields and industrial applications nowadays. Apart from research in pure kinematics, the field deals with problems of practical relevance that need to be solved in an interdisciplinary manner in order for new technologies to develop.

The results presented in this book 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.
