ESBiomech23 Congress in Maastricht

Registration now open: Workshop on “Biomarkers arising from nonlinear analysis of movement variability”, July 3-6, 2023, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

The Laboratory for Movement Biomechanics (LMB – ETH Zurich) together with the Center for Research in Human Movement Variability (MOVCENTR – UNO Omaha) is organizing a 4-day workshop converging experts in the field for deeper discussions and future international level efforts and collaboration for development and validation of biomarkers arising from nonlinear analysis of movement variability. During the workshop, participants will learn about the underlying mathematics and real-world applications of latest techniques and tools for assessment of various nonlinear characteristics: Complexity, Divergence, Regularity and Recurrences in human movement research. The programme also includes keynotes from world leading experts, think-tank sessions to share opportunities and challenges for fundamental investigations in nonlinear analysis of movement variability and Consult with Experts sessions to meet one-to-one with experts to discuss and plan your research journey with non-linear analysis tools.

Participants with varied backgrounds (research scientists, clinicians, educators, and students) are welcome since we include a strong practical component with class discussions and hands-on practice to facilitate understanding of the methods. More info and registration here:

ESB Italian chapter meeting, 18-19 September 2023, Politecnico di Torino

The Solid and Fluid Biomechanics Group of Politecnico di Torino is delighted to announce that the XII Annual Meeting of the Italian Chapter of the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB-ITA) will be held in Turin (Italy) on September 18-19, 2023.

The first day will be dedicated to the thematic symposium “Integrative biomechanics: advancing knowledge and technology from molecular to organ level”, while the second day to the advancements in the field of biomechanics in Italy.

Renowned international and national keynote speakers will deliver inspiring talks on frontier research and technologies in biomechanics.

The thematic symposium will focus on integrative biomechanics, which uses methods and tools in order to address fundamental and clinical problems throughout a multiscale approach, capable of considering the interaction of different scales of investigation.
In detail, integrative biomechanics entails the development of multi-scale and multi-organ, dynamic, interoperable, modular investigations, capable of accurately describing the individual patient patho-physiology, spanning different anatomical scales, from the molecular to cell, tissue, organ and systems level. Applications can range from the development of new biomechanical knowledge to the creation of cutting-edge technologies and approaches for health and wellbeing.

Best presentations of early stage and established researchers will be awarded.

Presenting the most recent advances in material science and technology, the KMM-VIN workshops provide a unique opportunity for starting and/or intensifying the communication and cooperation between scientists and engineers, aiming at material-driven transformation of various industrial sectors.

In order to broaden the effect of the event, this time, KMM-VIN joins forces with ViCEM, the cooperation center linking engineering with the biomedical world; and with the Austrian Chapter of the European Society of Biomechanics, which encourages, on a general level, research, disseminate knowledge and promote progress in Biomechanics.

Abstract Submission

The workshop will cover, but is not necessarily restricted to, the following topics:

  • Mathematical modeling, experimentation, and design of biomedical and bioinspired materials and structures
  • Microstructure-property relationship for hierarchical materials
  • Artificial intelligence-aided design of innovative biomaterials and bioinspired materials
  • Manufacturing hierarchical biomaterials
  • Cases of success in different industrial sectors: health, energy, transport, space and construction
  • Medical perspectives and demands concerning biomedical and bio inspired materials and structures

Potential participants from industrial and academic organizations are encouraged to submit contributions to the workshop. Both, oral and poster presentations are welcome. Abstracts of oral or poster presentations (max. 300 words) can be submitted by July 15, 2022.

The VPH Summer School series is co-organized by the Universitat Pompeu Fabra and by the Virtual Physiological Human Institute (VPHi). It provides junior engineers, early researchers and medical doctors with a complete overview of state-of-the-art Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) research for In Silico Medicine, following a complete pipeline from basic science and clinical needs, to model application. The training includes 15 morning lectures plus one honorary VPH lecture, given by leading international researchers. Speakers details are available here

The key methodological and technological concepts are enriched during the whole week by five afternoon hands-on sessions in multiscale modelling, physiological modelling, computational systems biology and machine learning that stand for 15.5 hours of transversal training in in silico medicine technologies, under the supervision of expert researchers. Hands-on details are available here.

The last afternoon of the VPH Summer School will host a round table co-organized with QUAES, gathering patients, physicians, researchers and public authority representatives to discuss on In silico Medicine and new medical technologies for the society: Awareness, expectations and effective capacity.

Daily scientific discussions and cross-dissemination are further supported by the afternoon poster sessions.   Please join us and share this information among your dissemination channels!

11th BSRT symposium: when hypotheses become clinical reality – Berlin 2-4 December 2020

We are delighted to invite you to join us at the upcoming 11th BSRT symposium!  

Regenerative medicine promises to functionally heal tissues and organs previously thought irreparable, by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms. But what exactly has been accomplished by this young branch of translational medicine which was only just defined in the 1990s? Are these promises still hypothetical or are they on their way to becoming clinical reality?

In this year’s symposium, experienced scientists and physicians will not only describe their clinical trials, revealing what has been achieved so far in the development of tomorrow’s personalized medicine, but also talking about possibilities for future clinical translation. Speakers will present the latest diagnostic tools used to predict the healing potential of patients, as well as new regenerative therapies to combat various diseases. In addition, they will show how rehabilitation approaches are tailored to the individual needs of the patient. Early-career scientists still ‘at the bench’ doing basic research will also have the opportunity to present their projects and discuss ideas with the potential to reach the clinics. This year, we looked for inspiration from great thinkers of humanity and decided to let ourselves be guided on this journey by quotations from ancient philosophers. They strove in their own ways for enlightenment and truth to further the well-being of humankind, just like we do in the field of regenerative medicine.

Due to the Corona Pandemic, the 11th BSRT symposium will be a face-to-face event for early career scientists with online keynote lectures given by international experts (Hybrid Symposium). However, in the event of another major lockdown in December, we will organise the event as a full online symposium. So, let us learn from the past and look towards the future of regenerative medicine!
