The University of Freiburg, its Cluster of Excellence Living, Adaptive and Energy-autonomous Materials Systems (livMatS) and the Institute for Bioengineering Catalonia/Spain will host virtually the "Living Machines. 9. International Conference on Biomimetic and Biohybrid Systems" from 28 to 30 July 2020.
The conference focuses on understanding and harnessing the principles of natural systems and the flow of communication signals between living and artificial systems.
The conference will bring together researchers from various disciplines such as biomimetics, robotics, neuroscience and materials science in an online edition. Researchers will present their work in lectures, poster sessions and workshops. In addition, leading international scientists will report on new developments in four plenary talks.

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).
