Within the framework of our Bio-Mimetic and Nature Inspired Design initiative we organise talks and events open to everybody!

Living Light 2020

We are pleased to invite you to Living Light 2020!

Living light is a biennial interdisciplinary conference focusing on light-matter interaction in living organisms. Following 2018's success at the Cambridge University, the next conference will take place online on July 20-22, 2020. As this is a first for everyone, this edition will be particularly exciting as it is linked and fully backed up as a Faraday Discussion, probably one of the oldest conference series in the worlds that is hosted by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

We invite everyone with an interest in light in living organisms to participate. The conference topics covers (without being limited to):

• Biological photonic structures

• Optics of natural materials

• Development and evolution of structural colouration in nature

• Bio-inspired optics

• The role of structure: order and disorder

• The role of composition: natural materials and synthetic composites

• Ecology and biochemistry of structural colour in nature

Deadline for abstract submissions for talks or posters is 1st June 2020.
