As track organizers of Nanoengineering for Medicine and Biology at 2011 ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE 2011) held Nov 11-17 at Denver, Colorado, USA, I would like to invite you to submit abstracts to the track. This track aims at fostering interaction and collaboration of researchers at the emerging edge in the broad field of nanotechnologies. The following topics will be included:
? Topic 1: Panel Discussion “Challenges for Mechanical Engineers in Medicine and Biology”
? Topic 2: Nanobiomechanics
? Topic 3: Biomimetic and Bioinspired Technologies
? Topic 4: Nanotechnology for Multimodal Imaging and Image-Guided Theranostics
? Topic 5: Bionanomanufacturing
? Topic 6: Nanobiosensors and Nanobiosystems
? Topic 7: Nanoengineering for Regenerative Medicine
? Topic 8: Bionanofluidics
? Topic 9: Drug Delivery and Nanomedicine
? Topic 10: Nanoengineering for Medicine and Biology Plenary Session (invitation only)
This is the first year to have the track of Nanoengineering for Medicine and Biology in the IMECE. Your participation and support will be essential for the growth and improvement of the track. The track will provide a forum of nanobiotechnologies, where you will exchange your ideas with engineering scientists, biological and clinical researchers, industrial partners, as well as policy makers. Meanwhile, you will also get the chance to exploit the Mile High City in the best ski season.
You can create an author account and log in IMECE 2011 website (http://www.asmeconferences.org/congress2011/) to submit a 400-word abstract under Track 7: Nanoengineering for Medicine and Biology. The deadline of abstract submission is February 28, 2011. If you select to submit technical publications, final accepted papers will be published in the ASME proceeding and be available on DVD at the meeting, and through ASME Digital Library. The proceeding papers will be indexed by Science Citation Index Expanded.
I look forward to hearing from you soon and learning about your work in the track. Should you have any questions regarding the abstract submission to the track, please feel free to contact me.
