CBS 2020

The main purpose of this conference is to discuss frontier research and realistic applications on cyborg- and bionic systems, which are concerned with hybrid fusion techniques for organic and biomechatronic body parts. Of central interest is the integration of artifacts and technologies like biomorphic actuators and sensors into an effective biocybernetic system. CBS 2020 is sponsored by the IEEE-RAS TC on Cyborgs and Bionic Systems. One of the primary goal is to make an organism restored or enhanced beyond its original biological characteristics. With the rapid development of bionic technologies, biomorphic chips and nanotechnology, we think that cyborgs and bionic systems can assist humans to conquer many limitations such as disease, disabilities, speed, strength, dexterity as well as intelligence. In addition, understanding neural principles, spiking circuits as well as brains and modeling of the functionality of artificial brains linked to sensors, actuators and robots and to organic natural bodies are further topic of interest. Biomorphic chips, spiking neural computation and its underlying learning methodologies form the basic IT-substrate for cyborgs. Ethics and human centered AI approaches are to be discussed

Regular Paper Submission

The procedure to submit a regular paper is the following:

  1. Please READ the detailed guidelines regarding the IEEE Xplore compliance.
  2. Generate the PDF file of the paper following the paper instructions. (LaTeX, Ms Word).
  3. The corresponding authors should login to PaperPlaza using their PIN and password and they will see the link to submit the final paper. The PDF file size should not exceed 2 MBytes. Instructions of the IEEE Xplore pdf compliance and copyright form are provided in Paper Plaza. The maximum page limit is six (6) pages. Up to two additional pages are allowed, with a page charge of $200 per additional page.

IMPORTANT: If you need to make changes in the title, abstract, author information, etc., do not use special characters such as “, or ‘ or two-byte characters. The system will COMPLAIN for the “FIRST CORRESPONDING AUTHOR!!!!”

  1. Submit electronically the PDF file along with the compliance email.
  2. Submit a one-page digest in powerpoint format (ppt). No other formats are accepted. A sample digest file is: Sample Digest (ppt).
