Denton, TX
We are pleased to announce the Conference on Engineering in Living Systems (CELS 2021) to be held in Denton, Texas. CELS 2021 brings together leading engineers and biologists in order to: (1) apply engineering principles to better understand biological systems, (2) craft a design-based theoretical framework that explains and predicts the behaviors of living systems, and (3) develop research programs that demonstrate the engineering principles at work in living systems. The conference will follow a workshop-like format of discussion-oriented sessions in a collegial setting, with a goal of fostering active participation and establishing concrete results and action items. Topics include the following: Intersection of Biology and Engineering — the impacts of engineering
