We are pleased to announce that the II International Conference on Tissue Engineering (ICTE 2011), an ECCOMAS Thematic Conference, will take place in Lisbon, Portugal on 2nd to 4th June 2011.
Following the success of the First ECCOMAS Thematic Conference International Conference on Tissue Engineering, held in Leiria in 2009, the objective of the conference is to bring together researchers from all over the world representing several fields of study related with Tissue Engineering.
Tissue engineering is a multidisciplinary field that has seen intense development in the past few years. It combines efforts from biology, engineering and material science methods towards the development of biological substitutes to restore, maintain, or improve tissue functions.
Mathematical and Computational methods have been intensely used to study tissue engineering issues, and the computational mechanics research community has demonstrated a special interest in this field.
Therefore, the ICTE 2011 will in focus on:
Understanding the fundamentals of tissue engineering;
Modelling and characterisation of scaffolds for tissue engineering;
Modelling the inter-relationships between scaffolds and cell attachment, proliferation and differentiation;
Design and development of scaffolds for tissue engineering;
Fabrication and testing of scaffolds for tissue engineering;
Computational Bone Mechanics.
Contributions are invited in all fields of Tissue Engineering. One-page abstract (maximum of 500 words) should be submitted, before January 15, 2011.
