About the workshop.
The integration of electronics with the biological world can be achieved by platforms using bio-inspired materials as well as strategies. Such bio-compatible electronics have the potential to transform current paradigms in green information technology and biomedical research. Realization of biodegradable or biocompatible, low-cost, large-volume materials and devices will contribute to sustainability in plastic “consumable” electronics. Biomaterials-based electronics with biomimetic interfaces can be utilized in medical technologies that require accurate sensing and stimulation of biological matter.
This will be a forum to bring together both veteran and young researchers to learn and discuss emerging topics in the field of bioelectronics. Topics include:
• Electronic/ionic signal transduction
• Conducting polymers in biochemistry and biomedicine
• Electronics based on biomaterials
• Optoelectronics at the interface with biology
• Devices for electronic sensing of bioanalytes, and electronically-mediated drug delivery
• Iontronics, protonics
• Electronic interfaces with biochemistry
• Artificial skin
• Artificial retina
• Consideration of conduction in biomaterials, i.e. melanin, DNA, etc.
• Nature-inspired materials for energy harvesting applications
• Implantable electronics
• Nanoinjection, structured material interfaces with cells
• Biocompatible inorganic semiconductors and devices
• Neural Interface
• Clinical applications
• Plant electronics / bionics
• Tissue Engineering
