  • Symposium on the Design and Performance of Functional Biomaterials

    2000 ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition
    Nov. 5-10, 2000 Orlando, Fla.

    Symposium on the Design and Performance of Functional Biomaterials

    The objective of the proposed symposium is to bring together scientists
    and engineers from teaching hospitals, academia and industry to
    discussing cutting edge research on the design and performance of
    functional biomaterials. The symposium will focus on materials for
    human prostheses. These include new concepts or materials for: dental,
    heart valve, hip and knee implants in biological systems. Papers that
    provide new insights into potential damage/failure mechanisms and the
    interfaces between tissue and the surfaces of materials used in
    prosthetic devices are strongly encouraged. Papers at the interfaces
    between biology, materials and mechanics will be given priority over
    those that involve incremental approaches within any given discipline.

    It is anticipated that these proceedings will be published as a book.

    Abstracts due March 15, 2000.
