The 1st International Online Conference on Biomimetics, with a focus on “Advances in bioinspired materials, biomimetic design and device, bioinspired surfaces and interfaces, bioinspired robotics and bioinspired sensors”, will be held from 15-17 May 2024. The main purpose of the conference is to promote biomimicry and bionics, and it is dedicated to research that relates to the most basic aspects of living organisms and the transfer of their properties to human applications and man-made devices.
This conference is an excellent opportunity for researchers and scientists in the field of biomimetics and bionics to interact with each other, communicate with colleagues, learn from each other, share ideas and experiences, jointly solve problems, and suggest alternative solutions for a better future in the bionics. A distinct advantage of this virtual international conference is that the participants are not required to travel and can simply attend the conference regardless of their location. Participants do not need to seek financial support for travel, nor do they need to leave the comfort of their home, office, and/or family to book a trip and, consequently, adjust to the corresponding time zone.
In the virtual conference setting, while the presenters can deliver live presentations simultaneously, the participants can contribute to the discussion and provide feedback orally and/or using the “Chat” and “Reaction” functions.
The main topics of this conference include:
Biomimetics of Materials and Structures
Biomimetic Design, Constructions, and Devices
Biomimetic Surfaces and Interfaces
Design and Control of Bioinspired Robotics
Bioinspired Sensorics, Information Processing, and Control
All accepted abstracts will be published on the conference’s website. Participants are expected to submit an abstract of 200 to 300 words and should refer to the abstract preparation guidelines at "Instructions for Authors".
After the conference, the participants may submit a full paper to MDPI’s Biomimetics journal. After the review process, the authors of the accepted papers will receive a 20% discount on the APC before the paper is published in Biomimetics.

The registration includes attendance to all conference sessions.
When registering with several people under the same registration, please do not use the same email address for each person, but their individual university email addresses. Thank you for your understanding.
The number of participants is limited: once the number of registrations reaches the maximum number of participants, unfinished registrations will be cancelled.
Please note that the submission and registration are two separate parts. Only scholars who registered can receive a link to access the conference live streaming. The deadline for registration is 10 May 2024.
The Conference will accept abstracts only. The accepted abstracts will be available online on Sciforum.net during and after the conference.
Deadline for abstract submission: 16 January 2024.
Announcement of oral and poster abstract results: 13 February 2024. You will be notified of the acceptance of an oral/poster presentation in a separate email.
The structure abstract should include the introduction, methods, results, and conclusions sections of about 200–300 words in length.
All accepted abstracts will be published as one dedicated volume in Proceedings journal (ISSN: 2504-3900). If you wish to publish a full-length proceedings paper, please refer to the “Publication Opportunities” Section.
All abstracts should be submitted and presented in clear, publication-ready English with accurate grammar and spelling.
You may submit multiple abstracts. However, only one abstract will be selected for oral presentation.
Please note that the submitting author will receive all correspondence relating to the abstract. Thus, the submitting author must be the presenting author.
The presenting author must ensure that all co-authors are aware of the contents of the abstract.
The presenting author must be listed as the first author for this conference.
Note: We only accept live presentations.
To acknowledge the support of the conference's esteemed authors and recognize their outstanding scientific accomplishments, we are pleased to announce that the conference will provide 4 awards including Best Oral Presentation Award and Best Poster Award.
Number of Awards Available: 4
The Best Oral Presentation Award is given to the paper judged to make the most significant oral contribution to the conference.
The Best Poster Award is given to the submission judged to make the most significant and interesting poster for the conference.
The winner will receive a certificate and 200 CHF each.
