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

To meet the demand of the bionic scientists for academic communication, the 2nd International Youth Conference of Bionic 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.

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

****Conference Format****
