CFP: Foundation of Biodesign
Call for Papers
Foundations of Biodesign: Integrating Art, Design, and Biology
[Abstract Deadline—November 16, 2020]
The Biodesign Working Group, a partnership of Cumulus Association and Biodesign Challenge, welcomes paper submissions that explore the emerging field of biodesign. Papers will be published in both the Cumulus Conference Proceedings and in Biodesigned, the bimonthly online magazine published by Biodesign Challenge. This Call for papers is the inaugural program of the Biodesign Working Group, which will be hosting meetings and discussions at future Cumulus conferences (both online and in person). The Call welcomes submissions worldwide and is not limited to Cumulus members.
About the Call
Biodesign is an emerging discipline that harnesses biotechnology and living systems to create products and processes, probe humanity’s relationship with biology, and interrogate emerging practices in the life sciences. Practitioners consider relationships among people, the environment, and lifecycles, and attempt to recognize humanity’s part in an intricate ecosystem that binds designed objects to the living world.
The discipline requires academic discourse on which to build new branches of biodesign research. We ask that contributors describe their own ongoing research or review areas of research that are emerging. This Call is open to academic researchers studying the field of biodesign, practitioners, and students of the field.
November 16, 2020: Deadline for submissions of abstracts through this [LINK].
March 1, 2021: Deadline for submissions of full paper.
June 1, 2021: Deadline for camera-ready submissions of full paper.
