Computational Biomechanics for Medicine II: a MICCAI 2007 satellite
workshop.



Call for papers



Computational Biomechanics for Medicine (
http://cbm2007.mech.uwa.edu.au/index.html ) will be held in Brisbane



on 2 November 2007, in conjunction with MICCAI 2007 (



http://www.miccai2007.org/ ).



Rationale:



Mathematical modelling and computer simulation have proved tremendously
successful in engineering. One of the greatest challenges for mechanists is
to extend the success of computational mechanics to fields outside
traditional engineering, in particular to biology, biomedical sciences, and
medicine. The proposed workshop will provide an opportunity for
computational biomechanics specialists to present and exchange opinions on
the opportunities of applying their techniques to computer-integrated
medicine. For example, continuum mechanics models provide a rational basis
for analysing biomedical images by constraining the solution to biologically
reasonable motions and processes. Biomechanical modelling can also provide
clinically important information about the physical status of the underlying
biology, integrating information across molecular, tissue, organ, and
organism scales. The main goal of this workshop is to showcase the clinical
and scientific utility of computational biomechanics in computer-integrated
medicine.

The authors of the best papers presented at the Computational Biomechanics
for Medicine workshop will be requested to submit an extended version of
their papers to the special section of the Medical Image Analysis journal.



Scope:



The following computational mechanics disciplines will be included:
1. Computational solid mechanics
2. Computational multibody systems kinematics and dynamics

3. Computational fluid mechanics
4. Computational thermodynamics (e.g. heat transfer, radiation)

We solicit papers that use methods of computational biomechanics in the
following application areas:

* Medical image analysis
* Image-guided surgery
* Surgical simulation
* Surgical intervention planning
* Surgical technique development
* Disease prognosis and diagnosis
* Injury mechanism analysis
* Surgical aid design
* Artificial organs
* Implant and prostheses design
* Medical robotics
* Tissue engineering
* Understanding of embryonic development
* Understanding of aging
