Asilomar Bioelectronics Symposium 2017

Asilomar Conference Grounds,
Pacific Grove, CA, USA

September 17-20, 2017

 

 

 

 

 

Modern electronics and materials science are bringing revolutionary advances to biointerface design and are shattering the limits of what is possible in the areas of biomedical diagnostics and sensing, neuroscience, and prosthetics. This new field of bioelectronics seeks to explore the interfaces between electronics, materials science and other engineering disciplines with biochemistry, biophysics, and general biology. The efforts in this area combine the sophistication, energy efficiency, and ability to self-replicate and self-repair of living systems with the robustness, speed, and durability of inorganic materials, either by way of hybrid constructions, micro- and nano-fabrication, or self-assembly.

This interactive symposium will focus on defining the frontiers of this interdisciplinary research area and on mapping important directions for the future.  The collegial environment of this symposium will allow leading experts in the field, rising stars, and novices to discuss a broad array of topics.                    

The symposium format features morning and evening sessions with ample unstructured time in the afternoons in order to foster in-depth informal discussions between senior and junior scientists.  The symposium will be held at the Asilomar Conference Grounds (http://www.visitasilomar.com) situated right on the Pacific Ocean on the spectacular Central California coast. There will be optional outdoor activities to enhance the symposium experience and to foster additional scientific discussions. 

Important dates:         March 25, 2016 (first call for abstracts),  June 15th, 2016 (abstract deadline)
