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.
