CALL FOR PAPERS

Computational Biomechanics for Medicine VI <http://school.mech.uwa.edu.au/CBM2011/>, will be held in Toronto 2011 September 28, in conjunction with MICCAI 2011 <http://www.miccai2011.org/>.

Deadline for paper submission: 6 June 2011

----------------------------------------------------------------
Invited Speakers:
Andrew McCulloch
Professor and Jacobs Distinguished Scholar, Department of Bioengineering, University of California San Diego <http://cmrg.ucsd.edu/AndrewMcCulloch>
"Multi-scale modeling and imaging of the failing heart: from mouse to human"

----------------------------------------------------------------
Rationale:

Mathematical modelling 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 modelling 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:
Computational solid mechanics;
• Computational multibody systems kinematics and dynamics;
• Computational fluid mechanics;
• Computational thermodynamics.

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: 2011 June 6;
• Notification of acceptance: 2011 July 4;
• Final version of papers submitted: 2011 August 1;
• Workshop: 2011-September 18.

----------------------------------------------------------------
Submission:

Submissions should include CBM6 in the subject line and the author's first name and family name in the filename. Papers should be emailed (in .pdf format) to Poul Nielsen <p.nielsen@auckland.ac.nz>. Full workshop papers will be carefully refereed. Participants will receive electronic versions of the papers on the day of the workshop. The authors of the best papers presented at the Computational Biomechanics for Medicine VI Workshop may 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).

Please follow the format specifications given at <http://school.mech.uwa.edu.au/CBM2011/instruct-authors-e-CBM-6.pdf>.
The MS Word template can be downloaded from <http://school.mech.uwa.edu.au/CBM2011/T1-book.dot>.
Instructions of how to use the template can be downloaded from <http://school.mech.uwa.edu.au/CBM2011/Instructions-Template-CBM5.pdf>.

Notes:
• In the template: Chapter title is your paper title.
• Reference style: Use the style for Medicine, Biomedicine, Life Sciences, Chemistry, Geosciences, Computer Science, Engineering, Economics as specified in the Instructions to Authors.
• The figures and tables should be embedded within the text.
• Do not anonymise your manuscript.
• The length of papers, including figures and references, should be 8 to 12 pages.

----------------------------------------------------------------
We look forward to seeing you in Toronto this September.
