The symposium addresses the growing interest of materials scientists in the creation, characterization, and control of processes at functional biointerfaces, i. e, the interfaces between biomolecules, cells, tissues or complex biological systems with other materials. The aim of this symposium is to exchange information about the fundamental understanding, characterization, control and engineering of these interfaces in a thought provoking, stimulating atmosphere. This is not only because of the intellectual challenges of the exciting interdisciplinary field of materials science but also because materials scientists, physicists, chemists, biologists, engineers and medical doctors are facing more and more situations where materials are confronted with challenging biological environments. Therefore, a need exists to develop and spread knowledge in this area. The aim of this symposium is, therefore, to address the need to design, create, characterize and test functional biointerfaces and to develop structure-property relationships for these functional biointerfaces.

The organizers do not plan to publish proceedings for this symposium. Selected papers presented at this symposium will be invited as regular submissions (full peer-review process) to the „Advanced Biomaterials” section of the international scientific journal “Advanced Engineering Materials” by Wiley-VCH. The deadline for on-line manuscript submission via http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/adbi is 15 October 2010.
