ESB special session at the 2018 VPH Conference: Mechanical cues in health and disease mechanisms
Following the increasing success of the four previous editions of the Virtual Physiological Human Conferences, the 5th edition, VPH FOR INSILICO MEDICINE –VPH2018, will take place on 5 – 7 September 2018 in Zaragoza, Spain. The VPH Conference gathers Scientists of international prestige in the field of the conference that have already confirmed their participation as Plenary Lecturers. These lectures will be complemented by Invited Sessions organized by recognized experts in targeted research areas.
In particular, the VPH Institute (VPHi) community and the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB) combine efforts through the organization of a special session that targets the importance of mechanical cues in the living and disease mechanisms: simulation-based findings and new hypotheses. This session aims to be complementary to the rest of the conference tracks, as it will allow researchers presenting biomechanical, mechanobiology, biological models and combinations thereof as means for explorative research through computer simulations, regardless the nature of the modelling tools or targeted application.
The conference will also welcome Tina Morrison (Deputy Director, Division of Applied Mechanics and Chair of FDA’s Modeling and Simulation Working Group) who will lead a special Industry Session about coming possibilities for IN SILICO MEDICINE.
The respective efforts of the VPHi and ESB communities will be also reflected through two different workshops for students: “Patient-specific musculoskeletal models into FE computer models”, organized by CURABONE (ITN-EID Marie Curie action) and, “High performance computing for the VPH”, organized by CompBioMed. More info to be announced soon.
Submission of abstracts is open:
Authors are invited to submit a one-page abstract before February 28th, 2018.
Registration and submission of abstracts should be performed online. Detailed information is available here. You can contact here for any question.
We hope to see you in Zaragoza in September 2018 and we look forward to receiving your contribution for the ESB Special Session.
María Ángeles Pérez Ansón and Jérôme Noailly, Chairs of the ESB Special Session at VPH2018
