ICMMB-13: XIII International Conference on Mechanics in Medicine and Biology

November 12-15, 2003
National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan

On behalf of the organizing committee, I extend an invitation to you to
attend ICMMB-13, the XIII International Conference on Mechanics in Medicine
and Biology. As you know, Taiwan is named as Green Silicon Island. That is,
high-tech computer and micro chip industries are powerfully developed here.
Formosa, another name depicted Taiwan exhibits how beautiful this island is.
The National Cheng Kung University is a well-known institute in the world
because of its outstanding academic education and high level training in
engineering as well as excellent research and development in applied
technology and basic science.
The ICMMB-13 is an academic event presenting an interdisciplinary forum of
engineering, medicine and biology. The congress will consist of plenary
lectures, tutorial lectures, keynote/invited lectures, symposia and free
communication, covering all fields of biomechanics with emphasis in tissue
engineering and cell/molecular mechanics.
