ESBiomech24 Congress in Edinburgh

Joint KMM-VIN / ViCEM / ESB cross-disciplinary workshop

Biomedical and bioinspired materials and structures: a cross-disciplinary approach

The workshop combines the 9th KMM-VIN Industrial Workshop, the Biennial ViCEM Meeting, and the Austrian Chapter Meeting of ESB. (see the Announcement Flyer and Conference Webpage)!

The joint workshop will be held at TU Wien (Vienna University of Technology), on September 22-23, 2022 as a pure onsite event.

This workshop will be the ninth in the series of industrially oriented workshops organized by KMM-VIN in collaboration with leading research centres and industries. 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.
