    Computational Biomechanics for Medicine IX: a MICCAI 2014 satellite workshop

    First Call for Papers

    Computational Biomechanics for Medicine IX ( will be held in Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, on 14th September 2014, in conjunction with MICCAI 2014

    The CBM workshop, now in its ninth year, began in Copenhagan in 2006, then went to Brisbane (2007), New York (2008), London (2009), Bejing (2010), Toronto (2011), Nice (2012) and last year, Nagoya (2013).
    Each year the workshop runs in conjunction with the annual MICCAI conference, the premier meeting in the field.

    Mathematical modeling and computer simulation have proved tremendously successful in engineering. One of the greatest challenges for mechanists is to extend the success of computational mechanics to fields outside traditional engineering, in particular to biology, biomedical sciences, and medicine. The workshop will provide an opportunity for computational biomechanics specialists to present and exchange opinions on the opportunities of applying their techniques to computer-integrated medicine. For example, continuum mechanics models provide a rational basis for analyzing biomedical images by constraining the solution to biologically reasonable motions and processes.
    Biomechanical modeling can also provide clinically important information about the physical status of the underlying biology, integrating information across molecular, tissue, organ, and organism scales. The main goal of this workshop 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 fluid mechanics
    3. Computational multibody systems kinematics and dynamics
    4. Computational thermodynamics (e.g. heat transfer, radiation)
    5. Verification and validation methods

    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


    Key dates:
    • Deadline for paper submission: 23 May 2014
    • Notification of acceptance: 27 June 2014
    • Final version of papers submitted: 18 July 2014
    • Workshop: 14 September 2014


    Please, follow the formatting guidelines of the main MICCAI conference (available at, however do not anonymize your manuscript. The length of papers including figures and references should be between eight and twelve pages. Papers should be emailed (in .pdf format) to Barry Doyle Full workshop papers will be carefully refereed. Participants will receive electronic versions of the papers on the day of the workshop.
    The best accepted papers will be invited to published the work as chapters in Springer’s Computational Biomechanics for Medicine book series.
    Springer will also fund the Best Paper Prize.
