CMBBE – 18th International Symposium on Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering
In early March, the CMBBE International Symposium was held at the Arts et Métiers Institute of Technology in Paris, France, and was attended by members of CRC 1540 EBM. The symposium featured numerous inspiring presentations that highlighted current and future applications of computational mechanics to support tomorrow’s healthcare systems. Researchers from around the world had the opportunity to showcase their work in a variety of fields related to the human body and present their solutions to complex medical problems. Presentations by Nina Reiter (EBM associate doctoral student), Saaed Zarzor, and Emma Griffiths (all members of EBM-PI Prof. Silvia Budday’s research group) focused on recent research and results of experimental and computational studies on the brain and its development. Prof. Silvia Budday, together with EBM spokesperson Prof. Paul Steinmann and EBM PI Prof. Kristian Franze, organized a special session on „Exploring Brain Mechanics“ as part of the CRC 1540 research consortium funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
Participants were treated to a delicious dinner while floating on the Seine, providing an excellent opportunity for discussion and exchange of ideas among fellow researchers. The organizers are sincerely thanked for hosting another successful event and look forward to the 19th symposium in Vancouver, Canada, in 2024.
