9th International Conference on Mechanics of Biomaterials and Tissues

Important deadlines Abstract submission deadline – 7 July 2023 Early bird registration deadline – 29 September 2023 Author registration deadline - 29 September 2023

Conference Chairs Peter FriedlMicroscopical Imaging of the Cell, Radboudumc, The Netherlands Prof. Viola VogelDepartment of Health Science and Technology at the ETH Zürich, Switzerland

The 9th International Conference on Mechanics of Biomaterials and Tissues (ICMOBT) will take place from 16-20 December 2023 in Waikoloa, Hawaii, USA.

The 9th International Conference on Mechanics of Biomaterials and Tissues provides a unique international forum for researchers and practicing engineers from different disciplines to interact and exchange their latest results.

Mechanical concepts are vital for living systems, for their stability, flexibility, locomotion and survival. In the course of evolution, materials were identified that help organisms fulfil these various functions. Consequently, mechanical concepts guide materials scientists to draw special inspiration for their own engineering solutions. Likewise, humans have always sought new bioinspired material concepts that assist them in overcoming their health limitations.

The field of implant materials is now moving from static concepts to dynamic biomaterials that can adapt to stimuli from the living environment. It is an exciting time for biomaterial research. The same is true for robotics, as soft actuated and responsive materials pave the way for the rapidly emerging field of “soft robotics”, from the nano- to the macroscale.

The 9th International Conference on Mechanics of Biomaterials and Tissues will bring together the different communities to discuss new materials concepts, their spatial patterning and 3D printing, their modeling and simulation, biological and biomedical functions, and finally applications of bioinspired designs.

Do not miss this opportunity to meet the leaders in their field, while enjoying the great setting, the beaches and volcanoes. A truly creative environment!

Conference Topics Oral and Poster abstracts are invited on the below topics. They should be submitted using the online abstract submission systemopens in new tab/window.

  • Novel concepts and applications of bioinspired designs

  • Function-guided biomaterials creation and characterization

  • Tissue and organ mimetic cellular 3D systems

  • Modeling and simulations, from molecules to biomaterials, from cells to organs

  • Novel nanotechnologies to address major biomedical challenges

  • Responsive materials for soft robotics

  • Other

9th International Conference on Fracture of Polymers, Composites and Adhesives

24-27 March 2024 | Eurotel Victoria, Les Diablerets, Switzerland

For this 9th International Conference in the series organised by the European Structural Integrity Society - Technical Committee 4 on Fracture Mechanics related to Polymers, Polymer Composites and Adhesives. Papers relating to fracture mechanics testing methods, theoretical and numerical developments and applications of fracture mechanics to industrial applications are all welcome. Of special interest are novel polymer-based materials and composites, e.g., renewable or biodegradable and polymer-based materials made with new technologies, e.g., additive manufacturing. Please note that submissions on fracture of other materials and composites, e.g., metal-matrix, ceramic-matrix, or concrete are outside the scope and will not be considered.
