The following Special Issue, for which Dr Negin Imani is serving as Guest Editor, will be published in Biomimetics (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/biomimetics), and is now open for submissions of full research articles and comprehensive review papers for peer review and possible publication:
Special Issue: Biomimetic Design for Building Energy Efficiency 2021
We invite you to submit a contribution to this Special Issue in which some of the leading experts will describe their work, ideas, and findings.
Biomimetics (ISSN 2313-7673) is an open-access journal indexed by the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI – Web of Science), PubMed, and Scopus. Biomimetics places a high priority on rapid publication. All papers accepted for publication will be immediately published.
For further details on the submission process, please see the Instructions for Authors at the journal website (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/biomimetics/instructions).
We also encourage authors to send a short abstract or tentative title to email@example.com and the Editorial Office (firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com) in advance.
This Special Issue focuses on bio-inspired approaches used for reducing building operational energy. Energy reduction is therefore expected to have been achieved through bio-inspired building design, construction or the design, development and management of HVAC systems, lighting devices and electrical equipment. Scientific contributions are invited from scientists, researchers, engineers, and industry professionals as a means of disseminating recent design strategies, inventions and developments in the field. Research papers are expected to provide numerical evidence of effect either through simulation or real data. Review papers presenting the state of the art of this research area and pointing out new directions for further research are also welcome.
