Computational Biomechanics for Medicine VII: a MICCAI 2012 satellite


         Call for papers

Computational Biomechanics for Medicine (, will be held in Nice, France on 1st October 2012, in
conjunction with MICCAI 2012
). Workshop proceedings: published by Spinger NY.

Paper Submission Deadline:

11 June 2012

Invited Speakers:

Prof. Yohan Payan, Laboratoire TIMC-IMAG, Faculté de Médecine, CNRS-Universite Joseph Fourier, Grenoble, France;
"Why most of the intra-operative medical robotic devices do not use
biomechanical models? Some clues to explain the bottlenecks and the
needed research breakthroughs."

Prof. Stéphane Bordas, Director of Institute of Mechanics & Advanced Materials (IMAM), School of Engineering, Cardiff University;
"Ideas for model reduction in cutting simulation"



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
proposed 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 multibody systems kinematics and dynamics

3. Computational fluid mechanics

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
