The goal of this symposium is to advance the understanding of the biology, technology, and intelligence of small flying animals and robots by promoting an open discussion at the intersection of neurophysiology, ethology, zoology, micro-engineering, low-Reynolds aerodynamics, and artificial intelligence. Flying insects are marvelous micro-machines that provide source of inspiration for the realization of intelligent micro-robots capable of autonomous flight.
