Dear Colleagues,

We would like to inform you about the Special session on Spine Functional Behaviour and Advanced Modelling that will take place at the next Congress on Computation Bioengineering (ICCB 2011). It would be a pleasure to welcome you there and share some nice discussions about our research in Spine modelling. Please find more detail below.

Best regards,

Jérôme Noailly & Ron Alkalay.

ICCB 2011, i.e. the V Congress on Computation Bioengineering (http://www.iccb2011.org/) will be held in Mazatlán, Mexico, on Novembre 9th-11th 2011.

The congress aims to bring together the latest and most relevant topics in the field of numerical applications in Bioengineering and biomedical technology development.

The meeting is focused to promote sharing technical knowledge and to establish networking opportunities for new research trends covering aspects like computer modeling of biology, physiology and pathology from the molecule to the body, as well as, virtual simulation of physiological processes, fluid dynamic modeling, tools, devices & techniques, images processing among others.

Dr. Ron Alkalay, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Numerical models developed for muscular, bone, and cartilage tissues have significantly improved over the last 10 years. However, it seems that such improvements have been only scarcely transferred to the field of computational spine biomechanics. Therefore, according to the advanced models developed in other bioengineering areas, the goal of the session is to gather cutting edge studies in spine biomechanics and mechanobiology, involving the following points:

· Cell process simulations.
· Bio-physico-chemical simulations (transport, metabolism, etc.)
· Tissue degeneration/regeneration/remodelling simulations.
· Mechanistic modelling of the spine tissues.
· Advanced alternatives to simulate realistic boundary conditions.
· Multiscale models.

Abstract submission:
Abstract for the special session should be sent to jnoailly@ibecbarcelona.eu and ralkalay@bidmc.harvard.edu before April, 15th 2011 (extended deadline)
