Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue welcomes contributions from researchers working in the field of neuromorphic computing, material science, and electronic engineering interested in sharing recent theoretical, experimental, review, and perspective contributions. “Biomimetic Devices for Neuro-Inspired Applications” will describe recent advances in the field of neuromorphic computing based on biomimetic devices realized using organic and inorganic materials and neuromorphic analog circuits.

In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Neuromorphic functions at the device level;
  • Biomimetic devices;
  • Bioelectronic interfaces;
  • Biointerfacing with biomimetic devices;
  • Bioelectronics textile and wearable biosensors;
  • Materials and interfaces for biomimetic electronics;
  • Hybrid biological/electronic devices.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Biomimetics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Computers nowadays have different components for data storage and data processing, making data transfer between these units a bottleneck for computing speed. Therefore, so-called cognitive (or neuromorphic) computing approaches try combining both these tasks, as is done in the human brain, to make computing faster and less energy-consuming. One possible method to prepare new hardware solutions for neuromorphic computing is given by nanofiber networks as they can be prepared by diverse methods, from lithography to electrospinning. Here, we show results of micromagnetic simulations of three coupled semicircle fibers in which domain walls are excited by rotating magnetic fields (inputs), leading to different output signals that can be used for stochastic data processing, mimicking biological synaptic activity and thus being suitable as artificial synapses in artificial neural networks.
