Dear Colleagues

This is a final reminder and call for abstracts for the 16th Congress
of the European Society of Biomechanics, to be held July 6th - 9th,
2008 in Lucerne, Switzerland. DEADLINE for submission is November
30th (midnight CET).

Abstracts are to be submitted online via the conference website: http://www.esb2008.org/Abstract/index.htm

The main thematic tracks for the meeting are:

Cardiovascular and Biofluid Mechanics
Soft Tissue Mechanics
Bone Mechanics
Mechanobiology and Cell Mechanics
Implant/Joint Biomechanics
Dental Biomechanics
Spine Biomechanics
Human Motion
Injury and Forensic Biomechanics
Simulation and Modelling

In cooperation with the European Society for Biomaterials and TERMIS
(Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society),
special sessions will highlight cross-discipline research. The growing
importance of simulation for biomechanical research, pre-clinical
evaluation, diagnostics and treatment will be addressed in a session
focusing on the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) framework. Breakout
sessions are planned exploring EU funding programs, biomechanical and
biomedical education, industrial collaboration and translational

Further details about the conference, scientific topics and the online
abstract submission process are available on the website conference
website: http://www.esb2008.org

Important Dates:

November 30th, 2007 Online abstract submission deadline
January 15th, 2008 Notification of acceptance
March 1st, 2008 Early registration deadline

We look forward to welcoming you in Lucerne in 2008 and to a very
successful and rewarding ESB meeting. Please feel free to distribute
