FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
>>
>> Computational Biomechanics for Medicine V
>> ,
>>
>> will be held in Beijing on September 24, 2010, in
>> conjunction with MICCAI 2010 .
>>
>> Deadline for paper submission: 14 June 2010
>>
>> Invited Speakers:
>> Tsuyoshi Yasuki
>> General Manager, Advanced CAE Division, Toyota Motor Corporation, Toyota,
>> Japan
>> ³Development of Total Human Model for Safety (THUMS) version 4 and its
>> application to biomechanical research"
>>
>> Prof. Zhang Ming
>> Department of Health Technology and Informatics, The Hong Kong Polytechnic
>> University
>> "Computational foot-ankle-knee models for joint biomechanics and footwear
>> design"
>>
>> Rationale:
>>
>> Mathematical modeling and computer simulation have proved tremendously
>> successful in engineering. One of the greatest challenges for mechanists is
>> to
>> extend the success of computational mechanics to fields outside traditional
>> engineering, in particular to biology, biomedical sciences, and medicine The
>> proposed workshop will provide an opportunity for computational biomechanics
>> specialists to present and exchange opinions on the opportunities of applying
>> 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
>> about
>> the physical status of the underlying biology, integrating information across
>> molecular, tissue, organ, and organism scales. The main goal of this workshop
>> is to showcase the clinical and scientific utility of computational
>> biomechanics in computer-integrated medicine.
>>
>> Scope:
>>
>> 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
>>
>> ---------------------------------------------------------------
