The ICCB2013 abstract submission deadline has been extended: >>> DEADLINE: Thursday January 31, 2013
We invite you to submit abstracts to the Fifth International Conference on Computational Bioengineering which will take place in Leuven, Belgium, on 11-13 September, 2013 (www.iccb2013.org/).
The emphasis of ICCB2013 will be on 'Integration', which is central to many aspects of current Computational Bioengineering. The conference will bring together the latest and most relevant topics in the field of Integrative Computational Bioengineering. It will provide a forum for sharing technical knowledge and establishing networking opportunities.
Research topics will cover all aspects of biology, physiology and pathology from the molecule to the body. Specifically, we will emphasize the following themes:
Taiji Adachi, Kyoto University, Japan,
‘Multiscale modeling and simulation of cytoskeletal actin filaments’
Alejandro Frangi, University of Sheffield, UK
‘Patient-specific image-based neurovascular modeling and interventional planning’
Ralph Müller, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
‘In-silico mechanobiology of bone’
Dominique Pioletti, EPFL, Switzerland
‘Biomechanics as a tool to functionalize biomaterials’
Aleksander Popel, Johns Hopkins University, USA
‘Multiscale models of tumor angiogenesis and therapeutic applications’
Marco Viceconti, University of Sheffield, UK
‘Multiscale modeling of skeletal strength: achievements and open challenges’
Julio Saez-Rodriguez, European Bioinformatics Institute, UK
‘Predictive and mechanistic models of signalling networks from (phospho)proteomic data and prior knowledge’
James Sharpe, Centre for Genomic Regulation, Spain
‘In-silico organogenesis: multiscale modeling of limb development driven by quantitative imaging’
Nicolas Smith, University of London, UK
‘Translating computational bioengineering to the heart of the clinic’
Leuven is a historical, yet lively university town, very conveniently located close to Brussels. The direct train connection from the airport to Leuven only takes 15 minutes.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Leuven!
