Living Machines is holding its 9th conference in Freiburg, Germany from the 28th to the 30st of July 2020. This international conference is targeted at the intersection of research on novel life-like technologies inspired by the scientific investigation of biological systems—biomimetics, and research that seeks to interface biological and artificial systems to create biohybrid systems. We seek to highlight the most exciting international research in both of these fields united by the theme of “Living Machines”.

We are organizing a one-day satellite event, such as workshops, symposia or tutorials, to be held on the 28th of July immediately before to the start of the main conference. Proposals for satellite events are invited on any theme (biomimetic, biohybrid or both) related to the main conference. Proposals will be reviewed for

  • relevance to the themes of the conference,
  • scientific and/or technical quality,
  • timeliness and/or novelty, and
  • our evaluation of the financial risk relating to the event (i.e. costs in relation to expected registrations).

DEADLINE: Proposals should be submitted using the included proforma by May 15 2020 at the latest. Please submit sooner if possible. Confirmation of accepted proposals will be provided on a case-by-case basis and by mid-April at the latest.

We look forward to receiving your proposal for LM2020 satellite event.
