We are pleased to invite you to attend CMBBE2008 which is to be held in Porto, Portugal 27 February 1 March 2008. The meeting has presently accepted over 190 abstracts and will also include 26 Plenary presentations from world leaders in computational biomechanics. Full details of abstracts accepted can be found on the homepage of www.cmbbe2008.cf.ac.uk. We can still consider new abstracts submissions however the oral slots are close to full however poster slots are still available. The meeting will take place in the Sheraton Hotel & Spa, Porto for which special rates apply to meeting delegates.

ABSTRACTS ACCEPTED and MINI-SYMPOSIA

The meeting will also include various Mini-Symposium such as Dental Biomechanics, Imaging, Motion Analysis and Computer Assisted Surgery, Spine Biomechanics etc., and a full list of abstracts accepted to date can be found by going to the homepage of www.cmbbe2008.cf.ac.uk. The full programme is presently being developed and will be available in the New Year.
