ECI Conference on Nature-Inspired Engineering - Keynote speakers announced + call for abstracts

21 March 2019

Abstract Submission

One-page abstracts should be submitted as soon as possible and no later than the deadlines noted below.  The abstract should include both the significance of the research as well as results that will be discussed to allow a scientific assessment of the work by the organizers. Please indicate if the abstract is for an oral or poster presentation. Only a limited number of oral presentation slots are available.  Thus all submissions for oral presentations will be considered for both oral and poster.

Please indicate which application area is the best fit for your contribution on nature-inspired engineering:

  • Scalable Manufacturing & Process Intensification
  • Built Environment: Construction, Architecture & Urban Design
  • Functional Materials
  • Biomedical & Healthcare Engineering
  • Energy & Environmental Technology
  • Robotics and Other Applications

Deadline for abstracts for oral presentations:                     May 1, 2019 Deadline for abstracts for poster presentations:                 June 1, 2019

Please prepared your abstract according to this template: docx or doc.

All abstracts should be submitted electronically and submissions must follow the template provided at this link.

ECI will sponsor a poster competition for the Best Student Poster and Best Overall Poster.
