Computational Biomechanics for Medicine V

will be held in Beijing in September 2010, in
conjunction with MICCAI 2010 .


Mathematical modeling and computer simulation have proved tremendously
successful in engineering. One of the greatest challenges for mechanists is
extend the success of computational mechanics to fields outside traditional
engineering, in particular to biology, biomedical sciences, and medicine.
proposed workshop will provide an opportunity for computational biomechanics
specialists to present and exchange opinions on the opportunities of
their techniques to computer-integrated medicine. For example, continuum
mechanics models provide a rational basis for analysing biomedical images by
constraining the solution to biologically reasonable motions and processes.
Biomechanical modeling can also provide clinically important information
the physical status of the underlying biology, integrating information
molecular, tissue, organ, and organism scales. The main goal of this
is to showcase the clinical and scientific utility of computational
biomechanics in computer-integrated medicine.


The following computational mechanics disciplines will be included:
1. Computational solid mechanics
2. Computational multibody systems kinematics and dynamics
3. Computational fluid mechanics
4. Computational thermodynamics (e.g. heat transfer, radiation)

We solicit papers that use methods of computational biomechanics in the
following application areas:
Medical image analysis
Image-guided surgery
Surgical simulation
Surgical intervention planning
Surgical technique development
Disease prognosis and diagnosis
Injury mechanism analysis
Surgical aid design
Artificial organs
Implant and prostheses design
Medical robotics
Tissue engineering
Understanding of embryonic development
Understanding of aging

Key dates
Deadline for paper submission: 07 June 2010

Notification of acceptance: 10 July 2010

Final version of papers submitted: 01 August 2009

Workshop: 20 or 24 September 2010

Submissions should include CBM5 in the subject line and the author's first
name and family name in the filename.
Papers should be emailed (in .pdf format) to Adam Wittek
Full workshop papers will be carefully refereed.
Participants will receive electronic versions of the papers on the day of
the workshop.
Paper proceedings will be published by Springer NY and sent to participants
in 2011.
The authors of the best papers presented at the Computational Biomechanics
for Medicine V Workshop
will be requested to submit an extended version of their papers to the
special section of
a premier biomedical engineering journal (the journal to be decided at a
later date).
