Dear Colleagues,

The upcoming 2017 APS March Meeting will take place in New Orleans, LA during March 13-17, 2017. Here, we would like to invite you to contribute to a focus session called “Physics of Bioinspired Materials” as below. 

2.1.12: Physics of Bio-Inspired Materials (GSOFT, DBIO) [same as 4.1.30]

Recent years have witnessed a wave of renewed interest in designing bioinspired materials and structures especially accompanying with the rapid development of modern fabrication technology, such as nanofabrication and 3D printing. Understanding the physics governing formation of novel bioinspired structures and their stimuli-responsive behaviors is the key challenge to advance their design and uncover their potential.

The goal of this session is to create a platform for experts working on bioinspired materials, to discuss about the novel physics problems across different length scales and properties. This session will become a unique forum that not only provides the physical understanding of bioinspired materials, but also offers physical insights to advance the design of future bioinspired systems for broad applications by addressing the current scientific and technological challenges.

Topics will include:

·                Physics of self-assembly or self-organization approaches for bioinspired materials

·                Physics oftop-down and/or bottom-up approaches for making hierarchical structures

·                Physics of 3D printing of biomaterials or bioinspired structures

·                Structure-function relationships in bioinspired materials/structures

·                Physics of bioinspired load-bearing and energy-dissipative materials

·                Physics of stimuli-responsive behaviors of bioinspired materials/structures

·                Physics of bioinspired sensing and actuation

·                Physics of bioinspired surfaces and interfaces

Invited speakersProf. Dr. Dr.h.c. Peter Fratzl (Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces) and Dr. Emmanouela Filippidi (University of California, Santa Barbara)
