Thematic Symposium – Ocular Biomechanics

Under the auspices of the International Society of High-Tech in Ophthalmology
Invited Lectures


Philippe Büchler

Group Head of Computational Bioengineering,
Institute for Surgical Technology and Biomechanics, University of Bern, Switzerland


 Rodolfo Repetto

Department of Civil, Chemical and Environmental Engineering (DICCA),
University of Genova, Italy

Regular Lectures

Held by ophthalmologists, biologists, mathematicians and engineers with multidisciplinary discussions. Lectures will deal with all aspects of ocular biomechanics covering mechanisms that range from solid mechanics, through fluid mechanics, up to electrochemistry.

General Session – Biomechanics in Italy

The state-of-the-art of biomechanics, mainly but not exclusively in Italy, will be presented. Both poster
and oral sessions are forecast. Contributions are encouraged on all aspect of biomechanics.

Main Topics:
• musculoskeletal biomechanics;
• orthopaedic biomechanics;
• cardiovascular biomechanics;
• tissue constitutive modeling;
• multiphysics modelling;
• mechanobiological remodelling;
• tumor growth;
• nanomechanics and nanomedicine;
• modeling of drug delivery;
