Call for Abstracts (Deadline extended to February 12, 2011)

 As a part of WCCM 2012 (10th World Congress on Computational Mechanics)

 Submit Your Abstract (Choose mini-symposium MS-149)

Growth, adaptation, and differentiation of cells and tissues are
interrelated phenomena that are regulated partly by the mechanical
interaction of cells and tissues with their environment and partly by
the biological stimuli they receive. The importance of understanding the
relationship between mechanical stimuli and the time evolution of cells
and tissues has been long known. This relationship cannot be well
understood without mechanobiological models that relate the mechanics
and biology of cells and tissues. During the last three decades, many
researchers have developed mechanobiological models to study such
phenomena as morphogenesis, bone fracture healing, bone and muscle
remodeling, growth of bone and cartilaginous tissue, cytoskeletal
remodeling, and differentiation of cells and tissues. Computational
methods are often needed for solving the governing equations of such
mechanobiological models. This mini-symposium aims to bring together
researchers who apply computational mechanobiology to study the growth,
differentiation, and/or differentiation of different types of cells and
tissues. The mechanobiological models may concern nano-, micro-, or
macro-scale or a combination of these scales in a multi-scale scheme.
Contributions may use different computational techniques such as finite
element method, boundary element method, molecular dynamics, or any
other applicable computational technique. Studies that introduce or use
relatively newer approaches such as the models based on the mixtures
theory are particularly welcome. The other interesting area is
application of the growth, remodeling, and differentiation models for
design and optimization of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine
procedures (e.g. optimal design of scaffolds).
