Thursday, 2015, March 12

Living Machines 29th to 31st July 2015, La Pedrera, Barcelona, Spain.

The development of future real-world technologies will depend strongly on our understanding and harnessing of the principles
underlying living systems and the flow of communication signals between living and artificial systems.
Living Machines offers the perfect forum to discuss the development of novel technologies
through the distillation of principles from the study of biological systems.


CONFERENCE: The main conference will take the form of a three-day single-track oral and poster presentation programme,
The conference programme includes five plenary lectures from leading international researchers in biomimetic and biohybrid systems,
and the demonstrations of state-of-the-art living machine technologies.
