VII Annual Meeting
Rome, 28-29 September 2017
The Italian Chapter of the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB-ITA) is pleased to announce the VII Annual Meeting to be held in Rome (Italy) in September 28-29, 2017.
The Meeting will be held at the University of Rome LUMSA, in the heart of the historic center of Rome.The VII Annual Meeting of ESB-ITA will comprise both a thematic symposium on ocular biomechanics and the general meeting.
The functioning of the eye in both health and disease involves diverse areas of physics such as solid mechanics, ﬂuid mechanics, and electro‐chemistry. Understanding and modelling numerically the complex physics of the eye is fundamental to improve patient outcomes in the current clinic practice. In this thematic symposium, we aim to bring together ophthalmologists and researchers working on the biomechanics of the eye, in order to share experiences, ideas, methods and results.
The general meeting will cover experimental and computational techniques for the study of the pathophysiological behaviour of biomechanical systems. A broad spectrum of scales will be covered, ranging from the cellular, through the tissue, up to organ scale. Medical devices and their interaction with living tissues will be also addressed. Accordingly, a snapshot of actual trends of biomechanical research will be provided.
Additionally, the new Executive Board of our Chapter will be elected during the Meeting! Check the dedicated page for further info.
