Developing the capability to design, engineer and produce complex, multi-cellular engineered living systems (M-CELS) to emulate natural processes (development, regeneration, and disease) or to create new functionality is a grand challenge facing the scientific community. The manufacturing and design of these complex multicellular machines and systems (e.g., organ-on-chip models, biological robots, and organoids) require fundamental understanding of interactions between cells and their environment, their control by biochemical and mechanical cues, and coordinated behavior of functional cell clusters through computational and experimental methods. Cell interactions, controls across scales (from subcellular structures to multi-cellular systems) and behaviors will be central themes of the conference. The primary aim of this conference is to bring together a multidisciplinary group of forward-looking researchers seeking to explore these complex biological interactions and the emergent behaviors they produce, with the goal of creating responsibly engineered multi-cellular systems with specific functions.

Keystone Symposia is committed to maintaining a positive and respectful environment at its meetings. To this end, please review and comply with our policies
Registered attendees of one meeting in a joint pair may participate in sessions of the other, pending space availability.
All those submitting an abstract should plan to attend in-person to ensure extensive interaction opportunities. At this time we recognize that a small percentage of submitters may be unable to travel due to border crossing restrictions and/or institutional travel bans. If these restrictions are still in place during the meeting, permissions for remote presentations will be given for the exceptional circumstances listed above.
NOTE: In the event that your abstract isn't selected for a short talk and you're not able to travel the abstract fee is nonrefundable. All paid abstracts will be included in the meeting app and meeting materials available online.
