VenueWaikaloa, Hawaii, USA - United States USA - United States



Topics/Call fo Papers

After being held in Clearwater, FL and Sitges, Spain, we are pleased to announce that the sixth conference in the series returns to Hawaii. The 6th International Conference on Mechanics of Biomaterials and Tissues (ICMOBT) will take place on 6-10 December 2015 Waikaloa, Hawaii, USA.
Organised every two years, ICMOBT provides a unique international forum for researchers and practicing engineers from different disciplines to interact and exchange their latest results.
1. Biological Materials
Hard tissues and materials (e.g. bone, teeth, scales, osteoderms, mineralized biological materials)
Soft tissues and materials (e.g. cartilage, tendon, silk, elastin, organs)
Mechanobiology (development, physiology and disease)
Cell functions, structure and motility
Multiscale modelling and simulation of tissue mechanical properties (e.g. ab initio approaches, molecular dynamics, coarse-graining, finite element modeling, fluid-structure interactions)
Multiscale experimental characterization of tissue mechanical properties (e.g. AFM, TEM, nanoindentation, optical tweezers, x-ray diffraction, in situ methods)
Dynamic response of biological materials and tissues (trauma from impact and explosions)
2. Biomaterials
Tribology, friction and wear as well as fatigue
Materials failure in physiologically extreme conditions and disease (e.g. infectious disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease)
Hierarchical polymer materials and composites (e.g. dental ceramics and fibre-reinforced composites)
Regenerative medicine and tissue engineering
Metals and ceramics as biomaterials
3. Bioinspired Materials
Self-assembly of biological and biomaterials (e.g. peptides, DNA, polymers, nanoparticles, hierarchical structures)
Biologically inspired and biomimetic materials (including biomimicking materials)
Novel synthesis and processing methods: additive manufacturing, freeze casting.
Molecular level bioinspiration
