    ++ Synopsis and Scope ++

    Research in the field of shape modeling has revolutionized medicine, particularly in designing medical devices. The potential of deformable (statistical and analytical) shape and appearance models has been recently recognized within the biomechanics research community. These models have been applied for studying the effects of bone shape on the etiology of skeletal disorders (for e.g., improving the accuracy of fracture prediction techniques), biomechanics modeling, design of orthopedic implants, and surgery planning etc.

    The techniques involved are emerging and have promising applications towards modeling patient-specificity. Contributions to this session should focus on the uses of such models for various biomechanics related research. This special session aims to bring together researchers working on these and related topics. The session should be of interest to a wide audience from students, emerging researchers, and established researchers.
