Informations: enebi@dees.ufmg.br

The 1st Brazilian Biomechanical Engineering Meeting is
an initiative of the Bioengineering Committee of ABCM
(Brazilian Society of Mechanical Sciences and
Engineering, www.abcm.org.br) to promote the
integration and exchange of experiences among the
different Brazilian research groups in the area. Its
main purpose is to get together the groups from
different areas of the country so as to establish
joint cooperation projects. It is the first national
meeting in Brazil in the specific area of Engineering

Ongoing research papers and with partial results are
welcome, to be discussed by the scientific community,
in a cooperative and informal way. The participation
of graduate and undergraduate students is especially
encouraged. Professionals and students from Health
Sciences (medicine, physiotherapy, dentistry, etc) are
most welcome, contributing to the discussion of
bioengineering problems with their engineering

Important: The conference will be held in Portuguese
Language, although papers written in Spanish and
English will be accepted.

The International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) will
grant a special prize to the best student paper
presented in the I ENEBI.

Deadline to send the papers (extended abstracts):
January 30, 2007


Biomechanics and motor control
Musculoskeletal biomechanics
Biofluids and heat transfer
Artificial organs
Medical images and diagnosis
Biomechanics in dentistry
Modeling of physiologic systems
