Full papers (minimum 8 pages, up to 12 pages) are invited from researchers at any stage in their career but should present significant findings and advances in biomimetic or biohybrid research; more preliminary work would be better suited for short papers submission (minimum 4 pages, with a maximum of eight references and no more than two self-citations).

Full papers will be accepted for either oral presentation (single track) or poster presentation. Short paper will be accepted for poster presentation only.
