  • Call for papers "COMPUTER SIMULATIONS IN BIOENGINEERING", 16March 2011, IMechE, London,UK

    Dear colleagues,

    This is the first announcement and call for abstracts for the IMechE seminar "COMPUTER SIMULATIONS IN BIOENGINEERING" (third edition) to be held on 16th March 2011 at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE ) Headquarters in Westminster, London, UK. Detailed information on the meeting format and registration can be found on the seminar website at:

    The meeting is organised by the Engineering in Medicine and Health Division of the IMechE and will be chaired by Dr Georges Limbert(University of Southampton).

    * Prof. Gerhard Holzapfel (keynote lecture), Graz University of Technology, Austria and Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden
    * Prof. Yiannis Ventikos, University of Oxford, UK
    * Prof. Mark Taylor, University of Southampton, UK
    * Dr. Neil Bressloff, University of Southampton, UK
    * Mr. Stuart Kelly, Wideblue Ltd, UK
    * Dr. Mark Yeoman, Continuum Blue Ltd, UK
    * Dr. Philippe Young , Simpleware Ltd, UK
    * Prof. Steve Franklin, Philips Applied Technologies, Eindhoven, the Netherlands
    * Dr. Arne Kiis, Anybodytech, Denmark
    * Dr. Ruth Wilcox, University of Leeds, UK

    500 words abstracts can be submitted for either oral or poster presentation (please specify when submitting) by email ( All abstracts must be submitted by MONDAY 15th NOVEMBER 2010. Please note that only fully registered delegates can present at the seminar and only abstracts of delegates who are fully registered will be entered into the programme.

    Topics in Computational Bioengineering include but are not limited to: Multiphysics Finite Element techniques, Multi-scale techniques, Tissue Biophysics, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Rigid Body Dynamics, Agent-Based Modelling, Molecular Dynamics and Image Processing techniques.

    The objectives of the seminar are to communicate the most current ideas on the impact of computer-assisted techniques in the field of bioengineering (cardiovascular biomechanics, orthopaedic biomechanics, medical devices, human-consumer products interactions, etc), to educate scientists, engineers, and researchers in the use of these techniques, to promote the use of computer technology in bioengineering research, and to welcome new students, engineers and researchers into the field.
    This one-day seminar will show how state of the art computational engineering methods, including Finite Element, Rigid Body Dynamics and Computational Fluid Dynamics Methods, can be applied successfully in practice to assist medical researchers and engineers to design, develop and improve the performance of medical devices, engineered tissues and drugs. This will be demonstrated through presentations from engineers and researchers from such diverse organisations as Anybodytech, the University of Oxford, Philips Applied Technologies and the University of Leeds.
    The event aims at fostering cross-discipline networking and collaboration opportunities among academic researchers, consultant engineers and bioengineering companies. This opportunity will be of particular interest to those interested in EU FP7 programmes.

    In order to encourage student participation, student registration fees have been heavily subsidised and reduced to 62.50+VAT.
