24-27 February, 2010
Westin Hotel, Valencia, Spain

Coordinators:
John Middleton, Sam L Evans, Cathy Holt (CARDIFF UNIVERSITY, UK)

We are pleased to announce that the programme of presentations for
cmbbe2010 is now available on the website. You are cordially invited to
attend the meeting and although all the oral presentations slots are now
full we still have poster presentations slots available for abstracts
submitted by 29th January. We are also pleased to invite commercial and
research organisations to attend and we can provide display space if
required.

The CMBBE series is now one of the largest international meetings linking
all aspects of computational biomechanics and computer simulation.
www.cmbbe2010.cf.ac.uk contains over 300 presentations including plenary
presentations given by renowned researchers as well as commercial
organisations. The following programme overarches the latest advances in
medical technology, imaging/tissue characterisation, biosciences and
applications in clinical practice.

1. PLENARY SESSIONS
Plenary presentations by 34 world leading researchers in computational
biomechanics.

2. SPECIAL INTEREST SESSIONS
