  2. Modeling and simulations of biological processes (angiogenesis, mechanotransduction, cell division, circadian rhythm, tumorigenesis, etc.);
  3. Interventional medicine and mini-invasive surgery, cardiovascular dynamics, design and shape optimization of implantable medical devices; medical robotics and human motion modeling;
  4. Respiratory mechanics and aerosols;
  5. Thermal ablation of tumors;
  6. High-speed computing and experimental validation.

as well as
a round table for proposals (STREP rather than IP) to be submitted in the framework of FP7.

Attendees and Talks

Talks are scheduled on the whole day may 27 and first session morning may 28 (before coffee break).
The remaining part will be devoted to discussion for preparation of proposal in the framework of EU 7FP call VPH.

Reminder: free afternoon May 28 (ERCIM WG leader meeting)
that can be used for joint discussion by subgroups or self-maturation of potential proposal.

Speakers will present their team's competences and focuses their final presentation part on perspectives for EU call VPH proposal
(talk duration 15 mn and 5 mn discussion).
