Call for
The area known as biotronics or bioelectronics is an interdisciplinary research field that includes elements from biology, chemistry, engineering and the physical sciences and can be broadened further to include nanotechnology and nanoscience. The convergence of these fields has led to exciting developments in the integration of biomaterials and bioprocesses to photonic and electronic applications. These have included biomaterials to replace organic and inorganic materials in photonic or electronic devices and biomimetic devices to improve upon existing technologies. Such developments may go a step further to include novel devices and applications that take advantage of these interdisciplinary technologies.

The objective of this conference is to bring together researchers and experts from a variety of fields including biology, physics, chemistry, optics, photonics, nanotechnology, engineering and materials science, who have an interest in the exploitation of biological materials and designs in optical, photonic and electronic devices. Sessions will cover topics in bio-based and bio-derived materials and their application to photonics and electronics devices as well as bio-inspired and biomimetic technology.

Papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas:
  • biomaterials and devices for photonics and electronics applications including LEDs, LETs, lasers, optical storage, optical switches, modulating devices, electronic components, sensors and BioFETs
  • biomaterials for information processing and information storage
  • biomaterials for IR applications
  • biopolymers
  • DNA photonics
  • nonlinear optical processes in bio-materials
  • biologically synthesized nanomaterials
  • bio-based sensors
  • biomimetic and bio-inspired technology including biomimetic optical devices and biomimetic robotics.
