Biologically inspired design conference

The Center for Biologically-Inspired Design at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta have announced a conference in Biologically Inspired Design in Science and Engineering on May 10-12.


Images above are of Geckos Feet: Geckos, nature’s supreme climbers, can race up a polished glass window at a meter per second. They can even do it upside down. Moreover, they can support their entire body weight from a wall with only a single toe.

The conference in Biologically Inspired Design in Science and Engineering takes place in May 2006 and aims to to bring together scientists and practitioners of all disciplines who are committed to “search the design space represented in the natural world in order to provide innovative solutions”.

This new discipline is known as biomimicry or biomimetrics.

I have previously defined bioteams as "biomimicry in the field of team and organisational design".

I have also mentioned an important Biomimicry database which has been launched to support the discipline.
