In one of my other roles as technical co-chair of the upcoming ACADIA 2008 conference, I’ve recently put together a conference website. Still lots more content to come, but this is a start. The conference title is Silicon + Skin: Biological Processes and Computation. We are interested in looking at the range of ways designers and researchers have extracted principles from biology to create new materials, forms, and processes. We have a great line up of keynote speakers (which will be released soon). I’m also really excited to be working with a great group of people in organizing this conference. These include Neri Oxman (MIT), Marc Swackhamer (UMinn), Billie Faircloth (UT Austin), and Kiel Moe (Northeastern).
