Ninth International Conference on Modelling in Medicine and Biology (BIOMED 2011)
Venue: Reval Hotel Latvija
|Event Date/Time: Jul 27, 2011||End Date/Time: Jul 29, 2011|
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.
Conference topics include;
- Cardiovascular system
- 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
