The rapidly growing activity at the interfaces between biology, molecular sciences and electric/computer engineering is represented by two separate paradigms of bio-inspired engineering, both are based on the understanding of bio-molecular architecture and interactions, biological systems and processes. The first paradigm aims at new biological structures and functions by modification and redesign of natural systems. The second paradigm targets new materials and processes in non-biological environment. These efforts have already yielded not only new pharmaceuticals and biomedical devices, but also new materials that possess specific physico-chemical properties, such as nano-materials, catalysts, electronic, photonic, magnetic materials, etc.

We are pleased to announce the launch of the series of International Symposia on Bio-Inspired Engineering (ISBIE), which reflect the growing worldwide interest in this highly interdisciplinary field. The first symposium (ISBIE-2003) will take place in December 8-9, 2003, in Haifa, Israel. The symposium will mix diverse audiences from academic, technological and industrial circles and will provide a unique forum of interdisciplinary networking. It will bring together researchers from the chemical and biological sciences, pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries, computer science, material science and engineering, bioinformatics and electric engineering to identify common methodological developments and synergies between these fields.
