As we are still receiving abstracts, we have decided to extend the deadline
for abstract submission to April 30, 2005. Abstracts (max. 250 words) can
only be submitted on-line through the Workshop website

List of keynote speakers:

Frank Baaijens (Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands)
Dan Bader (Queen Mary and Westfield College, UK)
Alicia El Haj (Keele University, UK)

Keita Ito (AO Research Institute, Switzerland)
Jenneke Klein-Nulend (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands)
Ivan Martin (University Hospital Basel, Switzerland)
Patrick Prendergast (Trinity Centre for Bioengineering, Ireland)

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

Important dates:
Abstract submission deadline: April 30, 2005
