“Bionics” is the study of living systems with the intention of applying their principles to the design of engineering systems. Bionic engineering has become an interdisciplinary research area which integrates biology, materials science, mechanics, informatics, tribology, and other related subjects. Up to now, many bionic scientific productions have been achieved, such as the terrain-machines based on soil animals, the audiovisual equipments based on human eye and ear function, the flying machines based on birds or the winged insects.
The 4th International Conference of Bionic Engineering (ICBE 2013), organized by Institute for Bioinspired Structure and Surface Engineering, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Ministry of Education of China, will be held on August 13-16, 2013, in Nanjing, China.
Continuing from the conferences in 2006, 2008 and 2010, ICBE 2013 intends to bring together researchers and developers in the academic field and industry from around the world to share their research experience and to explore research collaboration in the areas of bionic engineering. We are pleased to invite you to submit papers and attend ICBE 2013.


Suggested topics include but not limit to the following:
- Biomechanics
- Bionic Structure
- Biomimetic Materials
- Biomimetic Surface
- Industry applications in biomimetics
- Sensors and signal processing
- Energy systems
- Robotics, motion systems and artificial intelligence


Authors are invited to submit the abstracts of original researches by email to Please include “ICBE2013” and your topic ONLY in the subject line.
The authors of accepted presentations should submit their full research papers or extended abstracts to the conference. Guidelines of the manuscript submission will be mailed to the authors with the acceptance letter. All the submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in the periodical ‘Applied Mechanics and Materials’ (EI indexed) which is online available in full text via the platform Selected papers will be published by ‘Journal of Bionic Engineering’ (SCIE indexed) or ‘Chinese Science Bulletin’ (SCI indexed) in a significantly extended, updated or rewritten version.
