    The first workshop on
    Bone Tissue: Hierarchical Simulations for Clinical Applications
    April 21-23, 2010 at UCLA

    Endorsed by

    Workshop Program [PDF format]

    Early Registration by March 15, 2010.
    Residents and junior investigators, underrepresented minorities and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend.

    BTHSCA1 aims to bring together bone orthopaedic surgeons, clinicians, system biologists, mechanical and software engineers, and applied mathematicians to share the latest findings and formulate a plan to develop the next generation of three-dimensional multi-scale virtual rendering of bone tissue able to address specific clinical issues. The need for this workshop is based on

    the increasing evidence that bone shows a plethora of divergent characteristics through a hierarchically-organized heterogeneous structure that varies across nano- micro- , and macro- length scales; and

    the highly interdisciplinary nature of hierarchical modeling, based on developments that occur independently across multiple scientific disciplines and address phenomena manifested at the different scales.
