Asia-Pacific Winter School on Bio-inspired Systems and Prosthetic Devices (BioPro) 2016 is considered analogous to the annual cognitive neuromorphic workshops in Telluride for the US region and in Capo Caccia for the European region. The ultimate goal of the annual Asia-Pacific Seasonal School is to promote the applications of bio-inspired systems to real industrial or medical problems. BioPro has been held in Taiwan from 2009 to 2015, with the support of IEEE Circuits and Systems Society under the Outreach Initiative. This year BioPro was organized by IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (Malaysia Chapter) as one of the IEEE Seasonal Schools in Circuits and Systems, in collaboration with the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, UTP, and National Tsing Hua University. The hosts are Tong Boon Tang (UTP) and Hsin Chen (NTHU). This workshop has been made possible with the generous support from the 2016 IEEE Seasonal Schools in Circuits and Systems of IEEE CAS Society, the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, UTP, and National Tsing Hua University.
