  • Second Call for Papers: Computational Biomechanics for Medicine V(September 2010) in conjunction with MICCAI 2010


    Computational Biomechanics for Medicine

    will be held in Beijing in September 2010, in
    conjunction with MICCAI 2010 .

    Key dates
    Deadline for paper submission: 14 June 2010

    Notification of acceptance: 11 July 2010

    Final version of papers submitted: 01 August 2010

    Workshop: 24 September 2010


    Mathematical modeling and computer simulation have proved tremendously
    successful in engineering. One of the greatest challenges for mechanists is
    extend the success of computational mechanics to fields outside traditional
    engineering, in particular to biology, biomedical sciences, and medicine.
    proposed workshop will provide an opportunity for computational biomechanics
    specialists to present and exchange opinions on the opportunities of
    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 modeling can also provide clinically important information
    the physical status of the underlying biology, integrating information
    molecular, tissue, organ, and organism scales. The main goal of this
    is to showcase the clinical and scientific utility of computational
    biomechanics in computer-integrated medicine.


    The following computational mechanics disciplines will be included:
    1. Computational solid mechanics
    2. Computational multibody systems kinematics and dynamics
    3. Computational fluid mechanics
    4. Computational thermodynamics (e.g. heat transfer, radiation)

    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


    Submissions should include CBM5 in the subject line and the author's first
    name and family name in the filename.
    Papers should be emailed (in .pdf format) to Adam Wittek
    Full workshop papers will be carefully refereed.
    Participants will receive electronic versions of the papers on the day of
    the workshop.
    Paper proceedings will be published by Springer NY and send to participants
    in 2011.
    The authors of the best papers presented at the Computational Biomechanics
    for Medicine V Workshop
    will 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
    The MS Word template can be downloaded from


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

    We look forward to seeing you in Beijing in October.
