Mathematical modelling and computer simulation have had a profound impact on science and proved tremendously successful in engineering. One of the greatest challenges for mechanists is to extend the success of computational mechanics beyond traditional engineering, in particular to medicine and biomedical sciences. The Computational Biomechanics for Medicine workshops provide an opportunity for researchers to present and exchange ideas on applying their techniques to computer-integrated medicine, which includes MICCAI topics of Medical Image Computing, Computer-Aided Modeling and Evaluation of Surgical Procedures, and Imaging, Analysis Methods for Image Guided Therapies, Computational Physiology, and Medical Robotics. For example, continuum mechanics models provide a rational basis for analysing medical images by constraining the solution to biologically plausible motions and processes. Biomechanical modelling can also provide clinically important information about the physical status of the underlying biology, integrating information across molecular, tissue, organ, and organism scales.

The main goal of this workshop is to showcase the clinical and scientific utility of computational biomechanics in computer-integrated medicine.
