International Bionic Engineering Conference 2011

International Bionic Engineering Conference 2011

Registration Now Open (Group Discounts Available!)

The International Bionic Engineering Conference 2011 aims to bridge the gap between academic research and industrial development in a field that is rapidly growing and gaining recognition across many disciplines. Intended as a common ground for the exchange of ideas, the Organizers call upon key researchers in industry and academia from around the globe to engage each other with presentation and in conversation that inspires bionic solutions to some of the biggest engineering problems facing industry today. The meeting extends to North America from three successful international meetings organized by the Key Laboratory for Terrain-Machine Bionic Engineering at Jilin University in Changchun, China. The conference is also associated with the Journal of Bionic Engineering published by Elsevier and is the official title of the International Society of Bionic Engineering.

This is the 1st Conference in a new and exciting series of conferences associated with Journal of Bionic Engineering.

These conferences provide a new level of direct interaction between the leaders in the scientific field and the attending delegates. Emphasis will be placed on latest unpublished results, extended discussion periods and direct interactions with leaders in the field.

Why you shouldn't miss this conference ?
1. First meeting to act as a common ground for industry and academia in bionics
2. Key leaders in the field to organize and present
3. Most recent developments in bionic research and applications in industry
4. Networking opportunities between academia and industry
5. Geographically accessible

Topic List

The conference brings together experts from around the world and addresses the following major topics:

  • Industry success stories in biomimetics
  • Impact of biomimetics on engineering
  • Environmental aspects of biomimicry
  • Sensors and signal processing
  • Bio-inspired materials and self-x-mechanisms
  • Energy systems
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Functional surfaces
  • Robotics, motion systems and artificial intelligence
  • Textiles (medical / technical / fashion)
  • Medicine (prosthetics and orthotics)
  • Agriculture and permaculture
  • Architecture & built environment

Bionics definition:

Bionics (also known as biomimicry, biomimetics, bio-inspiration, biognosis, and close to bionical creativity engineering) is the application of biological methods and systems found in nature to the study and design of engineering systems and modern technology. See Wikipedia for more information.
