Living Machines IV: The 4th International Conference on Biomimetic and
Biohybrid Systems
28th to 31st July 2015


To be hosted at
La Pedrera, Barcelona, Spain
In association with the Universitat Pompeu Fabra


Registration for LM2015 is now open at

Registration prices are 350/400/200 (CSN Members/non-members/students)
until July 15 and 400/500/250 for late registration

Student authors of accepted papers will be eligible to apply for a
limited number of LM2015 travel bursaries (see
living-machines at sheffield.ac.uk for details).

Late July is a busy time in Barcelona, we recommend that conference
delegates book their accommodation soon.  Suggestions for conference
accommodation are


We have scheduled to the following satellite events (see
http://csnetwork.eu/livingmachines/conf2015/satelliteevents for

The list of workshops is:

* The Robot Self
* Nature Inspired Manufacturing
* How to Practice Bio Inspired Design

More details at http://csnetwork.eu/livingmachines/conf2015/workshops

Satellites will be hosted at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra campus in
PobleNou http://www.upf.edu/campus/.  Please register for satellite
events when you register for the main conference event.  It is
possible to register for a satellite event and not attend the the main
conference. Please contact the event organisers for further
information about satellite events.


Submissions are invited for the LM2015 exhibition to feature working
biomimetic or biohybrid systems and biomimetic/biohybrid art.

Authors of conference papers are particularly encouraged to submit
exhibit proposals, however, the call for exhibits is open to all.  The
title and author list of all accepted exhibits will appear in the
LM2015 programme (in print and online), and there will be a prize for
the best LM2015 exhibit.

At least one person is expected to register for the conference to
present the exhibit (though this can be the same person who presents
and accepted paper).  In general, LM2015 cannot help financially with
the cost of bringing exhibits to the conference, however, we are able
to offer advice and can potentially provide storage, or accept postal
delivery, of exhibit material.

Your 1-page exhibit description should include: title (max. 150
characters), author list, lead author contact information, a 150-250
word description, a photograph if possible. Please specify if your
exhibit requires any of the following: a table, a poster board,
electric power.  Please let us know if you have any additional
requirements, we will do our best to accommodate reasonable requests.

Send your 1-page LM2015 exhibit description to info.csnetwork at upf.edu
by June 1st.


The call for full papers and extended abstracts has now closed,
however, we are still accepting late-breaking abstracts (LBAs) for
poster presentation only.

LBAs will be too late to appear in the LM2015 proceedings, but will
instead be published online, with the title and author list in the
LM2015 programme (in print and online). LBAs will also be eligible for
the LM2015 best poster prize.   At least one author of an LBA must
register as a LM2015 conference delegate. Authors of LBAs who have
student status will be eligible to apply for LM2015 travel bursaries.

LBAs should be a maximum of one A4 page and include a title (max. 140
chars), author list, contact information for the lead author, a
150-250 word description, up to 6 key-words. A figure or photo can
also be included.

Please send your 1-page LM2015 late-breaking abstract to Stuart Wilson
s.p.wilson at sheffield.ac.uk by July 1st, 2015
