++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++

Workshops on contemporary topics of biomechanics research will be organised
in the years in between the biennial ESB conference, under the auspices of
the European Society of Biomechanics. It is therefore our pleasure to
invite you to attend the first ESB thematic workshop.

"Mechanobiology of cells and tissue regeneration"

August 28-30 2005, Leuven, Belgium


The workshop wants to bring the most recent developments in the field of
mechanobiology of cells and tissue regeneration, and will be an opportunity
for both senior and junior researchers to present their work in an informal
and open atmosphere, with plenty of room for discussion.
The programme will be equally balanced between experimental (in vivo, ex
vivo, in vitro) and computational work, between soft and hard tissue
applications, between mechanics and biology.

Timing and meeting venue

The workshop is scheduled just prior to the ETES conference (European
Tissue Engineering Society). It will run from Sunday noon (August 28) to
Tuesday noon (August 30). Meeting venue is the city of Leuven, a charming,
medieval town in the heart of Belgium.

Scientific topics

The workshop will focus on the mechanobiology of tissue regeneration and
will be structured around four main topics:
Cellular mechanotransduction
Mechanobiology of tissue engineering
Computational modelling of cells, tissues and tissue regeneration
In vivo and ex vivo models of tissue regeneration


The workshop will consist of keynote speakers and contributed papers,
presented as commented posters.

Important dates:

First announcement: January 2005
Call for abstracts: February 2005
Decisions on acceptance sent out: April 2005
Early registration, hotel rooms guaranteed: May 2005
