CALL FOR PAPERS



Symposium on

DYNAMICS & CONTROL OF BIOMECHANICAL SYSTEMS /

BIOMEDICAL AND BIOTECHNOLOGY ENGINEERING TRACK



2008 ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition

Boston, Massachusetts, October 31 – November 6, 2008



This track focuses on the implementation of various engineering principles
in the conception, design, development, analysis and operation of biomedical
and biotechnological systems and applications. Authors and presenters are
invited to participate in this track to expand international cooperation, to
develop understanding of bioengineering principles and methodology and to
promote efforts in implementing engineering principles to biomedical and
biotechnological systems. Dissemination of knowledge by presenting research
results, new developments, and novel concepts in developing these systems
will serve as the foundation for this track program.



Topics of interest for the Dynamics and Control of Biomechanical Systems
Symposium span the area of dynamics and control of biological and
bio-medical systems, and include analytical, computational, and experimental
research on linear and nonlinear systems. Papers focusing on the following
topics are particularly welcome: linear and nonlinear dynamical phenomena in
bio-mechanical systems, bio-mechanical multi-body systems, dynamics and
stability of micro-scale and nano-scale dynamical bio-systems such as
molecular motors, multi-scale bio-dynamics and molecular modeling of
bio-molecules, bio-medical applications of nonlinear dynamical systems,
musculoskeletal dynamics and control, organ biomechanics, human body
kinematics, gait analysis, medical applications and prosthesis dynamics and
control, biomechanics of joints, dynamical fluid-structure interaction in
bio-systems. Papers in other related topics are also welcome.



Prospective authors should submit an up to 400-word abstract via the web
tool at the Congress 2008 website (
http://www.asmeconferences.org/congress08/) by March 3, 2008. With the
acceptance of this draft abstract, an extended two-page abstract should be
submitted by June 2, 2008. Final papers will be available on CD-ROM at the
meeting. See Conference website for a detailed publication schedule.
