Special Session SS5 on "The Virtual Physiological Human project and Imaging in Biomechanics" at CMBBE2010, Valencia

Dear Colleague,


As you may know we are organising the Special Session SS5 on “The Virtual
Physiological Human (VPH) project and Imaging in Biomechanics” as part of
the 9th International Symposium on Computer Methods in Biomechanics and
Biomedical Engineering (http://www.cmbbe2010.cf.ac.uk), to be held in
Valencia on the 24th-27th February 2010.

This session will focus on patient-specific modeling and simulation of
various body systems functioning in the framework of the Virtual
Physiological Human (VPH) calls of EU FP7 (http://vphop.eu/) and on image
processing and analysis in biomechanics. Nowadays, multistage investigations
aim at tackling time and length scales involved in the behaviour of
biological and biomechanical systems (e.g., blood circulation, ventilation,
digestion, renal purification, musculoskeletal apparatus, tumour growth,
etc.) that sense, react, and adapt to environmental loadings, and in the
study of that behavior from images.

Topics include (but not limited to) enhanced bio mathematical and
biomechanical models, data mining and visualization, image segmentation,
motion tracking, image alignment and registration, 3D reconstruction,
medical imaging, applications of imaging processing and experiments for

We are now looking for novel research papers addressing these topics.

Given your track record in this area, we would like to invite you to submit
an abstract to this special session. There is not much time remaining as the
deadline for abstract submission is October 16th 2009, however we hope that
you or one of your colleagues may consider submitting an abstract on this

You will need to submit your abstract via the conference website
(http://www.cmbbe2010.cf.ac.uk), and select the special session SS5.

We look forward to seeing you in Valencia.


Yours sincerely,
