****Scope of the Conference****

To meet the demand of the bionic scientists for academic communication, the 2nd International Youth Conference of Bionic Science and Engineering (ICBSE2018) will be held on 7th-9th November 2018 in Odense, Denmark. This conference will be supported by the Youth Committee of International Society of Bionic Engineering (ISBE) and Frontiers in Neurorobotics and organized by University of Southern Denmark and Nanjing University of Aeronautics & Astronautics. The objective of this interdisciplinary conference is to provide an international forum for youth or outstanding scientists and engineers around the world who are interested in the field of bionic science and engineering. All aspects of bionic science and engineering and application areas are welcome, including, but not limited to, the following topics:

Bio-inspired Robotics

Bio-inspired Sensors and Actuators

Bio-inspired Energy Storage

Bio-inspired Flexible Electronics

Bio-Inspired Solar Cells

Biomimetic Engineering

Embodied Artificial Intelligence and Neurorobotics

Functional Morphology

Musculoskeletal Systems, Biomechanics

Biological Interface and Functionalization

Biomimetic Materials, Biomimetic Structures

Mechanics, Biomimetic Surfaces

Biomimetic Design Methodologies

Bionic Fluid, Biological Systems

and Brain-Inspired Computing and Neuromorphic Systems.

****Abstract Submission Instruction and Publication Details****

Please prepare your abstracts using the Frontiers templates available here.


The abstract should fit into 500 words, the title into 500 characters. Up to one figure or table can also be added.

Then, submit your abstract on our submission page until 1st June 2018.


All accepted abstracts with oral or poster presentation will be published in Frontiers in Neurorobotics as an e-book.

Selected authors may additionally be invited to submit extended versions for a conference Special Issue of Frontiers in Neurorobotics and Journal of Bionic Engineering.


The best abstract, as well as the best poster, will be awarded at the conference.
