Call: BIOMED 2011 – Ninth International Conference on Modelling in Medicine and Biology

Ninth International Conference on Modelling in Medicine and Biology
27 – 29 July 2011
Riga, Latvia

Supported by the International Journal of Design & Nature and Ecodynamics

The ninth International Conference on Modelling in Medicine and Biology is a well established and recognised forum for dissemination of the latest research and applications in this important field.

Advances in medical and biological technology are transforming medical care and treatment; in great part this is the result of the interaction and collaboration between medical sciences and engineering. This has resulted in substantial progress in health care and in the quality of life of the population.

Computer models in particular have been increasingly successful in simulating biological phenomena. These are lending support to many applications, including cardiovascular systems, the study of orthopaedics and biomechanics and electrical simulation amongst others.

Another important contribution, due to the wide availability of computational facilities and the development of better numerical algorithms, is the ability to acquire, analyse, manage and visualise massive amounts of data.

The conference topics cover a broad spectrum including the application of computers to simulate biomedical problems, ranging from cardiovascular modelling to virtual reality and simulation in surgery.

This important conference started in Southampton in 1991, followed by a meeting in Bath (1993) and others in Milano (1995), Aquasparta (1997), Ljubljana (2003), Bologna (2005), New Forest (2007) and Crete (2009). The papers presented at these meetings are archived in the WIT eLibrary ( where they are immediately and easily accessible to the international scientific community.

Conference topics include:

  • Cardiovascular system
  • Biomechanics
  • Simulation of physiological processes
  • Computational fluid dynamics in biomedicine
  • Orthopaedics and bone mechanics
  • Data acquisition and analysis
  • Virtual reality in medicine
  • System biology
  • Diagnostic tools and therapy
  • Bioelectromagnetics

Delegates attending BIOMED 2011 will be invited to submit an expanded version of their paper for publication in the International Journal of Design & Nature and Ecodynamics, associated with the Wessex Institute of Technology.

Abstract and Paper Submission Information:

Papers are invited on the topics outlined and others falling within the scope of the meeting. Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be submitted as soon as possible. Abstracts should clearly state the purpose, results and conclusions of the work to be described in the final paper.

We strongly encourage the submission of abstracts electronically, by clicking on the ‘Submit an Abstract’ button found at the top and bottom of this page. If you prefer, abstracts can be sent by email, fax or mail to the Conference Secretariat. Details can be found on the left side of this page. Please include your name, full address and conference topic on all submissions.

Final acceptance will be based on the full-length paper, which if accepted for publication, must be presented at the conference. To be fair to all participants, each registered delegate will only be able to submit one paper. The language of the conference will be English.

The paper deadline will be advised after submission of abstracts.

Papers may still be accepted for oral presentation shortly before the conference takes place. It may not however, always be possible to include late papers in the Conference Proceedings. Instead, late papers may be published in a future edition of the conference book series.
