ASME 2011 International Mechanical Engineering - Congress & Exposition (IMECE)

Fri, 2011/11/11 - Thu, 2011/11/17
Denver, CO

Track 7-3 covers Biomimetic and Bioinspired Technologies

We have exciting list of Sessions and the following are their Chairs and session subjects.

  • Akhlesh Lakhtakia, Pennsylvania State University – Mechanical systems and biomimetics
  • Ilaria Mazzoleni, Sci-Arc school, Los Angeles, CA - Biomimetics in Architecture
  • Mark M. Murray, US Naval Academy - Biomimicking marine mechanisms
  • Ron Pelrine and Roy Kornbluh, SRI International) - biomimetics using electroactive polymers (EAP) as artificial muscles
  • Rainer Stahlberg, University of Washington - Biomimetics in plant
  • Marc Weissburg and Jeannette Yen, Georgia Tech – Biomimetics in education

The 2010 ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exposition (IMECE) will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel & Denver Convention Center, Denver, Colorado from November 14 to 16, 2011. Proposals for session chairs and submission of paper presentations in the topic of Biomimetic and Bioinspired Technologies in the track of Nanoengineering for Biology and Medicine are invited from all interested scientists and engineers from academia, industry and government agencies. Biomimetic and Bioinspired Technologies embrace researches that utilize the state-of-the-art technologies to learn from Mother Nature. The basic components and building principles of natural organisms with sophistication, miniaturization, hierarchical organizations, hybridation, resistance and adaptability are adopted to develop engineered counterparts. This topic includes multi-scale modeling for understanding natural systems and developing engineered components, self-healing and self-assembly at micro/nanoscale, mechanical design and development of transducing components, and application of novel materials. The deadline for submission of proposals is February 28, 2011. Prospective presenters should submit before the deadline a 400-word abstract via the Congress 2011 website at Multiple papers by same authors will be scheduled for presentation on different times. Submittal of manuscript is not a requirement but if sufficient number of authors select to submit technical publication, final papers will be published in the ASME proceeding and be available on DVD at the meeting. Please refer to conference website for detailed publication schedule.

Thanks to the Biomimicry Institute and Karen Verbeek for the pointer!
