Living Materials 2020

“Living Materials” promise to change the way we design technological and medical devices, and open infinite possibilities for programmable functions.
The Living Materials conference will provide an open forum for sharing recent advances and discussing current challenges and potential of Living Materials among experts and newcomers in the field. It will gather leading scientists and industrial partners, and tackle fundamental science and application-oriented approaches.

Scope

A new paradigm in material synthesis is emerging, in which living cells are used as active components in man-made materials to augment non-living matter with life-like capabilities. Self-ventilating sportswear, bio-syncretic robots, self-renewing bioremediation devices, biosensing tattoos, personalized drug delivery systems or self-healing concrete walls are just a few examples.

This conference will provide an open forum for sharing recent advances and discussing current challenges and potential of Living Materials among experts and newcomers in the field. It will gather leading scientists and industrial partners, and tackle fundamental science and application-oriented approaches. The event will be organized with a max. of 100 participants.

Session Topics

- Compatibilization of living components with non-living matrices
- Processing technologies for fabricating Living Materials
- Programming living materials with synthetic biology tools
- Technical application scenarios for Living Materials

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.

Brackets

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).

Phrases

Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

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).
