We invite both full papers and extended abstracts in areas related to Living Machines

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 biohybrid 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, maximum 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.

Submitted papers should be prepared using the Springer proceedings format and instructions
All contributions will be refereed and accepted papers and extended abstracts will appear in the Living Machines 2019 proceedings which we expect to be published in the Springer-Verlag LNAI Series.  
nb: Inclusion in the proceedings is conditional upon registration of at least one author per paper.
