Minisymposium on Computational Cell Mechanobiology at WCCM 2016, Seoul, Korea

Dear Colleagues,

We are cordially inviting you to submit an one-page abstract to the Mini-Symposium

Computational Cell Mechanobiology

which is organised within the framework of the 12th World Congress on Computational Mechanics WCCM XII to be held in Seoul, Korea24 - 29 July 2016  (see ). The deadline for the one-page abstract is December 31, 2015.

Computational cell mechanics and mechanobiology is the field of study that applies the principle of biomechanics, soft matter physics, and mathematics of dynamical systems together with computer simulation techniques to study cellular processes. Unlike computational genomics or bioinformatics, computational cell mechanobiology is focused on modeling and simulation of the molecular mechanism of cells that underlies the physiological behavior of living cells.

Aiming at bring researchers from different disciplines working together on molecular cell biology and computational modeling and simulation, this minisyposium will provide a forum for dissemination and discussioin on recent research developments in the broad area of computational cell mechanics, which includes but not limited to : (1) modeling and simulation of the mechanical behavior of cells and small cellular aggregates; (2) mechanotransduction of cells; (3) molecular mechanisms of various cellular signal pathways; (4) cell adhesion/contact and their influences on the shape and morphology of living cells; (5) modeling and simulation of various cellular processes such as cell spreading, cell motility, actin filament motions, and retrograde flow motions; (6) molecular dynamics simulation of various proteins in cells and their impications to cell biology; (7) modeling the dynamic behavior of the cell wall and intracellular fluid and  simulation of cellular tissue failure after impact, and (8) modeling and simulation of the intercellular interactions in small cell colonies and aggregates, for example the dynamics of intracellular second-messenger signaling ;  (9) modeling and simulation of synthetic gene networks, mitotic chromosome movements, and (10)  Multiscale modeling of the cellular tissue degeneration process due to abnormal loading conditions.
