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

•    Electroceuticals

•    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
