    Mathematical modelling and computer simulation have had a profound impact on science and proved tremendously successful in engineering. One of the greatest challenges for mechanists is to extend the success of computational mechanics beyond traditional engineering, in particular to medicine and biomedical sciences. The Computational Biomechanics for Medicine workshops provide an opportunity for researchers to present and exchange ideas on applying their techniques to computer-integrated medicine, which includes MICCAI topics of Medical Image Computing, Computer-Aided Modeling and Evaluation of Surgical Procedures, and Imaging, Analysis Methods for Image Guided Therapies, Intricacies of Image- Guided Surgery in Resource-Limited Settings, Inclusive and Fair Machine Learning for Medical Imaging, Computational Physiology, and Medical Robotics. For example, continuum mechanics models provide a rational basis for analysing biomedical images by constraining solutions to biologically reasonable motions and processes. Biomechanical modelling can also provide clinically significant information about the physical status of the underlying biological system by integrating information across molecular, tissue, organ, and organism scales. Comprehensive biomechanical models can also generate synthetic training data for machine learning-based image analysis systems.

    The main goal of this workshop is to showcase the clinical and scientific utility of computational biomechanics in computer-integrated medicine.

    Previous workshops in the series.


    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 will call for papers in the following areas of application of computational biomechanics and continuum modelling:
    • Biomechanics for medical image analysis
    • Biomechanics software and user interfaces
    • Computational anatomy and physiology
    • Development and aging
    • Disease prognosis and diagnosis
    • Image-guided interventions, surgery and therapies
    • Implant and prostheses design
    • Injury mechanism analysis
    • Medical robotics and haptics
    • Modelling artificial organs
    • Relating medical imaging and biomechanics-related biomarkers
    • Surgical planning and simulation
    • Surgical skill and work flow analysis
    • Surgical technique development
    • Tissue engineering and biomechanics

    Submissions should include CBM XIX in the subject line and the author's first name and family name in the filename. Papers should be emailed (in .pdf format) to Associate Prof. Magdalena Kobielarz: by June 24, 2024. Full workshop papers will be carefully refereed. Participants will receive electronic versions of the papers on the day of the workshop. Computational Biomechanics for Medicine XIX Workshop proceedings will be published by Springer. The authors of the best papers presented at the Computational Biomechanics for Medicine XIX Workshop may 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). Springer will also fund the 'Best Paper' prize.
