The main purpose of this conference is to discuss frontier research and realistic applications on cyborg- and bionic systems, which are concerned with hybrid fusion techniques for organic and biomechatronic body parts. Of central interest is the integration of artifacts and technologies like biomorphic actuators and sensors into an effective biocybernetic system. CBS 2020 is sponsored by the IEEE-RAS TC on Cyborgs and Bionic Systems. One of the primary goal is to make an organism restored or enhanced beyond its original biological characteristics. With the rapid development of bionic technologies, biomorphic chips and nanotechnology, we think that cyborgs and bionic systems can assist humans to conquer many limitations such as disease, disabilities, speed, strength, dexterity as well as intelligence. In addition, understanding neural principles, spiking circuits as well as brains and modeling of the functionality of artificial brains linked to sensors, actuators and robots and to organic natural bodies are further topic of interest. Biomorphic chips, spiking neural computation and its underlying learning methodologies form the basic IT-substrate for cyborgs.
