We cordially invite you to join the 5th Bioinspired Materials 2020 Conference on the design of functional materials and systems inspired by principles found in living nature. The main aim is to establish an international and interdisciplinary forum for scientists from a variety of fields including biology, chemistry, materials science and engineering, physics and medicine to discuss current cutting-edge research and to identify future research directions in the field of bioinspired materials. Main topics include the formation of hierarchical structures and the properties of complex-shaped biological materials. The transfer of biological principles onto adaptive and autonomous functional materials and systems made of organic and/or inorganic components represents a further main area. Beside synthesis and formation, the conference topics also include research on the functional and mechanical materials properties, the interaction of bioinspired materials with living environments, e.g. tissues and organs, and applications related to medical aspects. A topical focus will also be covering biofabrication.
The concept of this conference with no parallel sessions allows all participants to attend every talk and provides an excellent platform for networking and scientific exchange.
In addition to invited plenary lectures, the conference encompasses oral and poster presentations.
The 5th Bioinspired Materials will be held from 16-19 March 2020 in the Irsee Monastery Swabian Conference and Educational Centre.
The abbey is located on the foothills of the Alps, the small, idyllic market town of Irsee offers a favourable starting point for walks, hikes and trips into historic Swabia or into the Allgäu with its mountains, castles and lakes.

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.
You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).
Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.
You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).
If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
