ABOUT LIVING MACHINES 2017

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. The investigation of biomimetic systems can serve two complementary goals. First, a suitably designed and configured biomimetic artefact can be used to test theories about the natural system of interest. Second, biomimetic technologies can provide useful, elegant and efficient solutions to unsolved challenges in science and engineering.

Biohybrid systems are formed by combining at least one biological component—an existing living system—and at least one artificial, newly-engineered component. By passing information in one or both directions, such a system forms a new hybrid bio-artificial entity. The theme of the conference also encompasses biomimetic methods for manufacture, repair and recycling inspired by natural processes such as reproduction, digestion, morphogenesis and metamorphosis.

The following are some examples of “Living Machines” as featured at past conferences:

•     Biomimetic robots and their component technologies (sensors, actuators, processors) that can intelligently interact with their environments.

•     Biomimetic computers—neuromimetic emulations of the physiological basis for intelligent behaviour.

•     Active biomimetic materials and structures that self-organize and self-repair.

•     Nature-inspired designs and manufacturing processes.

•     Biohybrid brain-machine interfaces and neural implants.

•     Artificial organs and body-parts including sensory organ-chip hybrids and intelligent prostheses.

•     Organism-level biohybrids such as robot-animal or robot-human systems.

ACTIVITIES

The main conference will take the form of a three-day single-track oral and poster presentation programme, 26th to 28th July 2017, hosted at Stanford University, California, USA.

The conference programme will include five plenary lectures from leading international researchers in biomimetic and biohybrid systems, and the demonstrations of state-of-the-art living machine technologies.

The full conference will be preceded by up to two days of Satellite Events hosted at Stanford University.

SUBMITTING TO LIVING MACHINES 2017

We invite both full papers and extended abstracts in areas related to the conference themes. All contributions will be refereed and accepted papers will appear in the Living Machines Proceedings, published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence.

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.

More preliminary work is better suited for short paper submission (minimum 4 pages, with a maximum of ten references and no more than three self-citations). Full papers will be accepted for either oral presentation (single track) or poster presentation with a short podium preview. Extended abstracts will be accepted for poster presentation only.

Authors of the best full papers will be invited to submitted extended versions of their paper for publication in a special issue of the IOP journal Bioinspiration & Biomimetics.

Satellite events

Active researchers in biomimetic and biohybrid systems are invited to propose topics for full or half-day tutorials, symposia or workshops on related themes to be held on the 25th July at Stanford University.

Attendance at satellite events will attract a small fee intended to cover the costs of the meeting. There is flexibility about the content, organisation, and budgeting for these events. Please contact us if you are interested in organising a satellite event!
