We invite both full papers and extended abstracts in areas related to the conference themes.

Inclusion in the proceedings is conditional upon registration of at least one author per paper.

Full papers (minimum 8 pages, up to 12 pages) are invited from researchers at any stage in their career and should present significant findings and advances in biomimetic or biohybid research. Full papers will be accepted for either oral presentation (single track) or poster presentation. Authors with more than one paper will be limited to a maximum of one oral presentation.

Short papers (extended abstracts, minimum 4 pages), with a maximum of ten references and no more than three self-citations. More preliminary work would be better suited for this submission. Extended abstracts will be accepted for poster presentation only.

Important: To be published in the conference proceedings, each full or short paper must be presented by a registered author or co-author.

Submitted papers should be prepared using the Springer proceedings format and instructions

Authors of the best full papers will be invited to submitted extended versions of their paper for publication in a special issue of the Bioinspiration and Biomimetics. see here previous Living Machines articles in B&B special issue
