Dear Participants,

Thank you for your interest in the 5th World Congress of Biomechanics.  It was great success and we are still receiving positive comments about the sessions, the papers and the Congress in general.  Please watch out for announcements about the 6th World Congress in Singapore.

We still have some of the Proceedings volumes available. If you need copies of the book or CD please contact us.

We also still have a number of photographs taken during the  World Congress, the opening receptions and the banquet.  If you see any pictures you would like, please let me know.

It was pleasure having you in Munich. We look forward to seeing you in Singapore.

With best regards

Dieter Liepsch

The Institut of Biotechnik e.V. together with the Technical University of Munich and Munich University of Applied Sciences cordially invite you to the 5th World Congress of Biomechanics 2006.

Biomechanics covers a wide field from solid to fluid mechanics, from motion sports mechanics to automobile crash tests. It includes tissue engineering and biomaterials, artificial organs and sports therapy.

At the 5th World Congress the newest experimental studies will be presented. Special emphasis will be placed on state-of-the art technology and medical applications. Only new, unpublished papers will be accepted.

The 5th World Congress of Biomechanics will explore topics of interest to:

  • physicans
  • bioengineers
  • mechanical and aerospace engineers
  • clinicians in cardiology and other cardiovascular specialties
  • vascular surgeons
  • radiologists
  • neurologists and neurosurgeons
  • orthopedic surgeons
  • specialists in areas such as bone, ligaments, tissue mechanics, biologists, biochemists, biophysicists, biorheologists

15th Conference of the
European Society of Biomechanics

Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the European Society of Biomechanics, I am pleased to invite you to attend our 15 Conference. This year, in order to reduce overlap between meetings, we will be holding our biennial conference as part of the 5th World Congress of Biomechanics in Munich, Germany on 29th July to 4 August 2006. With this arrangement, the conference will attract scientists from even a wider variety of disciplines, across a broader field of topics and from more diverse geographical locations. The traditional ESB award lectures will be combined with plenary lectures, symposia, special events and discussions of the latest advances in biomechanics. As always, the ESB General Assembly will also be convened and there will be ample opportunities for our members to interact.
I hope that you will find the time to attend this exciting event and look forward to seeing you in Munich.

31st Congress of the Societé de Biomécanique

Dear “Biomécaniciens”
It is a great honor and a great pleasure for me to welcome you at the annual meeting of the “Société de Biomécanique (SB).”  This meeting, held in English, is incorporated in the 5th World Congress of Biomechanics.  Obviously this is a special meeting and a fantastic opportunity for the SB to present itself to a world audience of biomechanicians.  The SB meeting, held English, will consist of famous invited speakers mostly coming from French-speaking areas.  These “Biomécaniciens” will cover different topics of biomechanics and a special effort will be made to bring you the state of the art and the future developments in biomechanics.  As you will see, there is a very rich and friendly community of “Biomécaniciens”.  By the way, based on the actual evaluation standard for the relevance of a specific subject, “Biomechanician” has 112 entries in Google, while “Biomécanicien” has 309!  It is also very important to know that “Biomechanician” is not in the English dictionary of “Microsoft”, while “Biomécanicien is in the French dictionary.  All this to say that, the “Biomécanicien is a very active person in the field of biomechanics.  So I am very confident that new friendships and new collaborations will be established between “Biomechanicians” and “Biomécaniciens” during this meeting.
I wish you then a very enriching week from personal and professional points of view.
