DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS - 16th November 2007
ACCEPTANCE OF ABSTRACTS – 5th December 2007

INVITATION & SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS

You are invited to submit abstracts in the area of computational biomechanics and bioengineering for CMBBE2008. Papers which focus on innovations in both theoretical and applied simulation, computational modelling and validation procedures are particularly welcome. Papers which emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of medical technology, biosciences, simulation, imaging and the clinical community are also encouraged.

Contributed papers will be selected on the basis of submitted abstracts, which should be in English and are not to exceed 300 words (one page). Abstracts are invited by 16th November 2007 and all authors will be informed of acceptance by the latest on 5th December 2007. Abstracts should be submitted in MS Word (.doc) or Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) and emailed to middletonj2@cf.ac.uk and faruquer@cf.ac.uk.
