The main aim of the conference is to establish an international and interdisciplinary forum for scientists from a variety of fields including biology, chemistry, materials science and engineering, physics, and medicine to discuss current cutting-edge research and to identify future research directions in the field of bioinspired materials.  
The single-track concept of this conference provides an excellent platform for networking and scientific exchange. In addition to plenary and invited lectures, the conference encompasses oral and poster presentations.
Take your chance and submit your contribution already now to the following topics

  • Bioinspired/biomimetic materials (inanimate/animate)
  • Hierarchical materials and structures (inorganic/organic)
  • Complex-shaped biological materials
  • Biomineralisation inspired materials and systems
  • Autonomous functional materials and systems
  • Functional and mechanical materials properties
  • Interaction of bioinspired materials with living environments
  • Artificial intelligence and bioinspired materials
  • Biohybrid materials systems

Contributions from bioinspired actuation, artificial intelligence and biohybrid systems are particularly welcome!
