Tutorials at ISB 2015

As part of the International Society of Biomechanics Congress in Glasgow there will be a series of exciting tutorials on the Sunday prior to the welcome reception.  You can book these tutorials via the congress registration page (even if you have already registered for the congress).


2015 Muybridge Award Winner: Kai-Nan An

Prof. Kai-Nan An is the recipient of the 2015 Muybridge Award. The Muybridge Award is the most prestigious award given by the International Society of Biomechanics and is given for career achievements in the field of biomechanics. Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904) was the first to capture motion using high-speed photography, thus laying the foundation for the development of modern biomechanics. Previous winners of the award are listed here.

Prof. Kai-Nan An was unanimously selected for 2015 Muybridge Award by the award committee because of his exceptional impact on the field of biomechanics.

Computational Biomechanics for Medicine X: a MICCAI 2015 satellite workshop _________________________________________________ First Call for Papers Computational Biomechanics for Medicine X ( will be held in Munich, Germany, on 5 October 2015, in conjunction with MICCAI 2015 ( Join us in celebrating the tenth anniversary of our workshop, which began in Copenhagen in 2006, then went to Brisbane (2007), New York (2008), London (2009), Beijing (2010), Toronto (2011), Nice (2012), Nagoya (2013), and last year to MIT Boston (2014). Each year the workshop runs in conjunction with the annual MICCAI conference, the premier meeting in the field. Rationale: Mathematical modelling and computer simulation have proved tremendously successful in engineering. One of the greatest challenges for mechanists is to extend the success of computational mechanics to fields outside traditional engineering, in particular to biology, biomedical sciences, and medicine. The workshop will provide an opportunity for computational biomechanics specialists to present and exchange opinions on the opportunities of applying their techniques to computer-integrated medicine. For example, continuum mechanics models provide a rational basis for analysing biomedical images by constraining the solution to biologically reasonable motions and processes. Biomechanical modelling can also provide clinically important information about the physical status of the underlying biology, integrating information across molecular, tissue, organ, and organism scales. The main goal of this workshop is to showcase the clinical and scientific utility of computational biomechanics in computer-integrated medicine. Invited speakers: Professor Ron Kikinis Director, Surgical Planning Laboratory, Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School Institute Director of Fraunhofer MEVIS and Honorary Professor of Medical Image Computing at the University of Bremen Professor Stephane Cotin Research Director, INRIA, France Scope: The following computational mechanics disciplines will be included: 1. Computational solid mechanics 2. Computational fluid mechanics 3. Computational multibody systems kinematics and dynamics 4. Computational thermodynamics (e.g. heat transfer, radiation) 5. Verification and validation methods We solicit papers that use methods of computational biomechanics in the following application areas: • Medical image analysis • Image-guided surgery • Surgical simulation • Surgical intervention planning • Surgical technique development • Disease prognosis and diagnosis • Injury mechanism analysis • Surgical aid design • Artificial organs • Implant and prostheses design • Medical robotics • Tissue engineering • Understanding of embryonic development • Understanding of aging Key dates: • Deadline for paper submission: 8 June 2015 • Notification of acceptance: 6 July 2015 • Final version of papers submitted: 27 July 2015 • Workshop: 5 October 2015 Submission: Please follow the formatting guidelines available on the workshop website at The length of papers including figures and references should be between eight and twelve pages. Papers should be emailed (in .pdf format) to Grand Joldes ( by 8 June 2015. Full workshop papers will be carefully refereed. Participants will receive electronic versions of the papers on the day of the workshop. The best accepted papers will be invited to publish the work as chapters in Springer’s Computational Biomechanics for Medicine book series. Springer will also fund the Best Paper Prize.
