Scope The symposium focuses on fundamental understanding of biological and
biomimetic-solid interfaces as well as their implementation into
engineering applications. Interfacing biological molecules predictably with solid
materials at the nanoscale is the key for hybrid materials design leading to
innovative functional properties. Exploiting such properties towards developing
functional materials and devices depends on a better understanding and control of the
interfacial interactions at the atomic to nanoscale.

This symposium will address the synthesis, modelling and design principles
of the bio-nano interfaces and their implementation into practical medical and
technical applications such as tissue engineering, catalysis, sensors,
electronics, and photonics. While the solids may include metals, ceramics,
semiconductors, polymers, and their composites, the biopolymers include
proteins, peptides, DNA, RNA, polysaccharides, glycans, lipids and
membranes as well as cells and viruses.

A special emphasis will be given to the assembly processes at solid-liquid
interfaces that lead to specific surface phenomena and designed bio-nano-solid
self-assembled structures and organizations towards functional materials, systems and

- Fundamentals on Bionano interfaces;

- Nanoscale assembly rules and design criteria;
- New trends in surface characterization, in situ and ex situ;
- Predictive modelling and machine learning on biodesign and bioevaluations;
- Biointerfaces and applications for sensing, electronics and photonics devices
- Protein corona effect on nanomaterials surfaces; Modulating toxicology
- Implementations in regenerative and restorative medicine
