Scope Interfacing biological molecules predictably with solid materials is the key for hybrid composite materials, surface organization, and biomaterials. Bionano interfaces, therefore, is of interest for many engineering areas ranging from designing bioactive materials to nanodevices for a wide range of technological applications. This symposium on bionano interfaces and their design, tailoring and engineering applications emphasize the basic understanding of these soft interfaces and their implementation into practical medical and technological applications such as catalysis, sensors, electronics, and photonics. While the solids may include metals, ceramics, semiconductors, polymers, and their composites, Biopolymers include proteins, peptides, DNA, RNA, polysaccharides, glycans, lipids and membranes as well as cells and viruses. A special emphasis will be given to assembly processes at solid liquid interfaces that lead to surface phenomena and designed biomolecular and nanosolid self organizations towards functional materials and devices.

The symposium will encompass the following themes:
Fundamentals on BioNano interfaces;
Biomolecular recognition of solids:
Surface phenomena: thermodynamics and kinetics,
New trends in surface characterization, in situ and ex situ
Computational modeling of soft interfaces;
Assembly rules and design criteria
Applications to electronics and photonics devices
Implementations in regenerative and restorative medicine
