10th Biomimetics-Congress

12. & 13. Mai 2023 an der Hochschule Bremen


Wir freuen uns u.a. auf Vorträge von Christopher Dreimol von der ETH Zürich („Fin Ray With A Twist: Biodegradable, Transparent And Electrically Conductive Gripper With Bent-Twist Coupling“) und Joana Schulte von der RWTH Aachen („Mit additiver Fertigung und Bionik zu mehr Nachhaltigkeit im Bauwesen“). Außerdem wird Prof. Dr. Hartmut Witte von der TU Ilmenau über Bionik und Biomechantronik und Prof. Dr-Ing. Ivo Boblan von der BHT Berlin über die neuesten Entwicklungen der Robotik referieren. Ebenfalls freuen wir uns auf Dr. Elias Knubben von der Festo SE & Co. KG, der über das Bionic Learning Network von Festo berichten wird und auf den Vortrag von Petra Ditsche von der ClinTech Bionics UG (“Bionische Saugnäpfe für raue, strukturierte und unebene Oberflächen – Der Clingfish-Effekt) und auf viele weitere mehr.

  • 15th Annual Conference of the GTBB e.V.
  • 10th Biomimetics-Congress of the Bremen City University of Applied Sciences, B-I-C
  • Biomimetics Workshop of BIOKON e.V.

Target group

All those who would like to present projects in all stages of development in the area of tension between biology and engineering sciences as well as in the adjacent disciplines or who are interested in this field of work are addressed and called upon to participate. The spectrum ranges from basic research to innovative products ready for series production and patents. Bremen City University of Applied Sciences would also like to address students with this event. 

Poster and lecture registration

At the Biomimetics-Congress, contributions can be presented in the form of a poster, a lecture/talk or an exhibit. 

>>> Anmeldefrist: 03. März 2023

The deadline for submission of a paper or poster is March 03, 2023. We will inform you about the acceptance of papers by March 14, 2023. In addition to the information on author(s), their university, company or other affiliation and title, we ask that you submit an abstract (approx. 300 words) as soon as possible, which will be printed in the congress documents. This applies to both types of contributions (lecture/talk and poster).

The format for the scientific posters is DIN A0 in portrait format. These will be exhibited at the congress and presented in plenary poster sessions as part of the lecture program. For the poster presentation, the poster author(s) will be allotted a speaking time of 3 minutes each (exactly!), which will be done with the help of a PowerPoint presentation (2-3 slides). Further details will be communicated to registered authors by e-mail.

Biomimetics Idea Show

Accompanying the conference program, current bionics projects can be presented through exhibits, demonstrators and prototypes. The registration of an exhibit is independent of the registration of a poster or lecture. Exhibits can be registered until April 20, 2023. When registering an exhibit, you will receive a form to submit content information and technical requirements of the exhibit. This facilitates the thematic and spatial arrangement of the individual exhibits as well as the set-up in the presentation room.

Proceedings of the Biomimetics-Congress

Following this year's congress, it is planned to produce a conference volume that will contain lecture, poster and exhibit contributions. Further information will be announced in time.

Proceedings of previous congresses (2008 -2018) can be obtained from the GTTB e.V. website.
