The 6th International Conference of Bionic Engineering (ICBE2019) will be held on 23–26 September 2019 in Changchun, China, and hosted by the General Chair Professor Luquan Ren from Jilin University, who is also the Standing Vice-President of the International Society of Bionic Engineering (ISBE) and Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. This conference aims to establish a closer relationship between scientists and engineers worldwide in the field of bionic engineering, providing new ideas and accomplishments for the practice of bio-inspired design, manufacture, management, and application, to offer innovative solutions for meeting the demand of the rapid advancement of science and technology. This conference has received about 400 abstracts and 107 full papers. From the contributed papers, eighteen papers have been selected for this Special Issue. The scope of selected papers includes machinery, design, materials, functional surfaces, management, mobility, walking, and locomotion, all inspired by Nature. The selection of the papers for this Special Issue is based on quality criteria. They should reflect the topics in bionic engineering highlighted during the conference and the selected papers will contain contributions that are of interest to readers.
As Julian Vincent, the president of ISBE, says on the website of ISBE: "Let us share our responsibility to change our world for the better".
