Dear Colleagues

We invite you to participate in the 7th EUROMECH Solid Mechanics Conference
(ESMC2009), to be held at Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Portugal,
under the auspices of European Mechanics Society (EUROMECH), during
September 7-11, 2009.

The registration and abstract submission site for the Conference are open
and waiting for your visit at: http://www.dem.ist.utl.pt/esmc2009. We invite
you to submit your abstract to any of the General Sessions or to contact the
mini-symposia organizers to participate in the almost 30 mini-symposia that
are being organized. Special Issues of International Scientific Journals are
planned for some of the mini-symposia by their organizers.

The General Sessions that are explicitly dedicated to the Biomechanical
community are: Material Mechanics (sub-topic Biomaterials), Strutural
Mechanics (sub-topic Biostructures), and Dynamics (sub-topic Biomechanics of
Motion). Although we highlight these sub-topics, all the General Sessions
are reliable to include biomechanical contributions from the corresponding
Several Mini-Symposia will be organized aiming important biomechanical
topics, namely,
Biomechanics of Human Locomotion, Mechanics of cellular and network-like
(bio)materials, and Modeling of Biological Materials.

Authors wishing to contribute to the conference are invited to submit a
two-page abstract, which will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee and by
the mini-symposia organizers. Submission of full papers, supporting accepted
abstracts, are generally not required, but encouraged. The conference
publication will include the accepted abstracts and the full papers
submitted. Organizers of mini-symposia may invite contributors to deliver
full length papers to be reviewed, and if accepted, published in special
issues of International Scientific Journals.

The abstract submission deadline is January 31, 2009.

We invite you to visit the Conference web page at:

Yours Sincerely,
