European Society of Biomechanics Workshop 2007
Finite Element Modelling in Biomechanics and Mechanobiology

DATES: Sunday 26th August to Tuesday 28th August 2007
VENUE: Museum Building, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

The Trinity Centre for Bioengineering, Trinity College Dublin, will host the
2007 European Society of Biomechanics thematic workshop on Finite Element
Modelling in Biomechanics and Mechanobiology.
The workshop will be structured around three main application domains, each
with two subtopics:

Application of FEM to tissues and implants
* Tissue mechanics (e.g. constitutive modelling of soft and hard tissues)
* Implants and medical devices

Advanced Applications
* High-Resolution FE
* Patient-Specific FE

Using FEM in Mechanobiology
* Bone Remodelling
* Tissue Differentiation


The workshop aims to provide students and interested researchers with an
introduction to the application of the finite element method to biomechanics.
It will combine a mixture of tutorial and state-of-the-art review lectures by
leading researchers in each application domain along with the opportunity for
research students to present their work in free papers. Furthermore, it is
intended that special informal mentoring sessions will be held after the free
papers in which students can seek advice from the leading researchers in
their field of study.
