The 11th International Conference on Biomimetic and Biohybrid Systems

This 11th edition will highlight the most exciting research on biomimetics and biohybrid systems united by the theme of ``Living Machines``

Hosted online by NeuroNex at the Case Western Reserve University, US

Due to the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2022 edition of the Living Machines conference will have a streamlined online format to assure continuity of the Living Machines conference, community engagement, and support.

About Living Machines

The development of future real-world technologies will depend strongly on our understanding and harnessing of the principles underlying living systems and the flow of communication signals between living and artificial systems. Biomimetics is the development of novel technologies through the distillation of principles from the study of biological systems. Biohybrid systems are formed by combining at least one biological component and at least one artificial, newly-engineered component. Bypassing information in one or both directions, such a system forms a new hybrid bio-artificial entity. The conference theme also encompasses biomimetic methods for manufacture, repair, and recycling inspired by natural processes such as reproduction, digestion, morphogenesis, and metamorphosis.

Living Machines themes

Living Machines themes include a wide range of topics:

• Biomimetic robots and their component technologies that can intelligently interact with their environments.
• Biomimetic computers—neuromimetic emulations of the physiological basis of intelligent behaviour.
• Active biomimetic materials and structures that self-organize and self-repair or show other bio-inspired functions.
• Artificial organs and intelligent prostheses.
• Organism-level biohybrids
• Control principles for embodied perception, cognition, and action.
• Synthetic biology and synthetic consciousness based on biomimetics.
