The 9th International Conference on Mechanics of Biomaterials and Tissues (ICMOBT) will take place from 16-20 December 2023 in Waikoloa, Hawaii, USA.

The 9th International Conference on Mechanics of Biomaterials and Tissues provides a unique international forum for researchers and practicing engineers from different disciplines to interact and exchange their latest results.

Mechanical concepts are vital for living systems, for their stability, flexibility, locomotion and survival. In the course of evolution, materials were identified that help organisms fulfil these various functions. Consequently, mechanical concepts guide materials scientists to draw special inspiration for their own engineering solutions. Likewise, humans have always sought new bioinspired material concepts that assist them in overcoming their health limitations.

The field of implant materials is now moving from static concepts to dynamic biomaterials that can adapt to stimuli from the living environment. It is an exciting time for biomaterial research. The same is true for robotics, as soft actuated and responsive materials pave the way for the rapidly emerging field of “soft robotics”, from the nano- to the macroscale.

The 9th International Conference on Mechanics of Biomaterials and Tissues will bring together the different communities to discuss new materials concepts, their spatial patterning and 3D printing, their modeling and simulation, biological and biomedical functions, and finally applications of bioinspired designs.

Do not miss this opportunity to meet the leaders in their field, while enjoying the great setting, the beaches and volcanoes. A truly creative environment!
