  • Special Session SS5 on "The Virtual Physiological Human projectand Imaging in Biomechanics" at CMBBE2010, Val encia

    Dear Colleague,

    As you may know we are organising the Special Session SS5 on “The Virtual
    Physiological Human (VPH) project and Imaging in Biomechanics” as part of
    the 9th International Symposium on Computer Methods in Biomechanics and
    Biomedical Engineering (http://www.cmbbe2010.cf.ac.uk), to be held in
    Valencia on the 24th-27th February 2010.

    This session will focus on patient-specific modeling and simulation of
    various body systems functioning in the framework of the Virtual
    Physiological Human (VPH) calls of EU FP7 (http://vphop.eu/) and on image
    processing and analysis in biomechanics. Nowadays, multistage investigations
    aim at tackling time and length scales involved in the behaviour of
    biological and biomechanical systems (e.g., blood circulation, ventilation,
    digestion, renal purification, musculoskeletal apparatus, tumour growth,
    etc.) that sense, react, and adapt to environmental loadings, and in the
    study of that behavior from images.
    Topics include (but not limited to) enhanced bio mathematical and
    biomechanical models, data mining and visualization, image segmentation,
    motion tracking, image alignment and registration, 3D reconstruction,
    medical imaging, applications of imaging processing and experiments for
    validation.
    We are now looking for novel research papers addressing these topics.

    Given your track record in this area, we would like to invite you to submit
    an abstract to this special session. There is not much time remaining as the
    deadline for abstract submission is October 16th 2009, however we hope that
    you or one of your colleagues may consider submitting an abstract on this
    topic.

    You will need to submit your abstract via the conference website
    (http://www.cmbbe2010.cf.ac.uk), and select the special session SS5.

    We look forward to seeing you in Valencia.

    Yours sincerely,
    Joćo Manuel R. S. Tavares (University of Porto, Portugal)
