Workshop Giuliano 2017

France-Italian Workshop
Bone biomechanics: multiscale and multiphysical aspects
Giuliano di Roma, Italy, 26-28 September 2017

The CNRS International Associate Laboratory Coss&Vita (associating the Paris Federation of Mechanics Labs and the International Research Center M&MoCS) and the French federation Ingénierie Mécanobiologie Ostéo-Articulaire (IMOA) jointly organize a three-day workshop on “Bone biomechanics: multiscale and multiphysical aspects”.

The workshop will take place in the charming historic village of Giuliano di Roma (Italy), from Tuesday, September 26 to Thursday, September 28, 2017.

Sitting at the crossroads and gaining input from mechanics, mathematics, biology, and medicine, biomechanics aims at providing a thorough understanding of the functioning of living systems through an interdisciplinary effort where all these scientific communities usefully complement one another’s expertise.

Bone represents a typical example where this interaction has been especially fruitful. However, despite the long-lasting interdisciplinary research devoted to this topic worldwide, bone functioning still represents a challenging problem and several questions still require to be answered.

This workshop is intended to be a privileged moment of scientific exchange gathering an international scientific community working on the various aspects of the osteoarticular system. Biomechanics community will meet biologists and clinicians in an informal setting to discuss about their respective objectives, approaches, and issues.

All the topics related to the biomechanics of the osteoarticular system are relevant to this workshop, aiming at providing a comprehensive overview of the multiscale and multiphysical nature of bone functioning.
