New Frontiers in Bioinspiration

A Center for Evolutionary Materials One Day Symposium

June 24, 2019 at the  University of Massachusetts Amherst

The UMass Center for Evolutionary Materials (CEM) is proud to announce a full day symposium – New Frontiers in Bioinspiration to explore new areas of bioinspired research. The goal of this symposium is to bring together scientists and engineers to discuss the physics, chemistry, and engineering principles related to intriguing and enabling behaviors observed in natural systems. The format is designed to provide a broad view of current research topics, while allowing significant time for cross-discipline discussion and idea generation. We invite scientists and engineers from all disciplines, backgrounds, and experience levels to participate in this inaugural event.

The $30 registration fee includes symposium proceedings and coffee. A box lunch (sandwich, hand fruit, all natural chips, UMass water and bakeshop cookie served in a UMass compostable paper tote bag.) can be purchased during registration for $12.95.
