Welcome to ABC10

'MECHANOBIOLOGY ACROSS THE SCALES'

ABC10 is the 10th Australasian Biomechanics Conference (ABC10), which is the Biennial Conference of the Australian & New Zealand Society of Biomechanics (ANZSB).We are excited that ABC10 will be held in Melbourne, Victoria and will showcase the latest research in biomechanics across Australia.

The theme of the 2016 meeting is "Mechanobiology across the Scales." As a discipline at the interface of biology and engineering, mechanobiology has grown significantly in the past decade. Major efforts have been made to better characterise the effects of physical forces on cells, tissues and organs. It is now well accepted that mechanical forces are involved in development, physiology, disease and repair processes.

For ABC10 we have identified seven broad session themes addressing various topics in biomechanics including: mechanobiology, tissue engineering, medical imaging, biomechanics - human movement, clinical and sports biomechanics, computational modeling, and other related topics in biomechanics.


Reasons to attend ABC10:

  • Everything about Biomechanics in one place
  • Networking opportunities
  • Meet experts in their field
  • ANZSB grants and awards
  • ANZSB membership reduced with conference registration
  • Visit of Melbourne – one of the most liveable cities in the world

Associate Professor Peter Pivonka
Chairman, 
Australasian Biomechanics Conference 2016

Welcome word from the ABC10 Chair

As the chairman of ABC10, it is both an honour and a pleasure to invite you to join the 10th Biennial Scientific Meeting of the Australian New Zealand Society of Biomechanics also referred to as the Australasian Biomechanics Congress (ABC10) which will be held at the University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Victoria from the 4th to the 6th of December, 2016. The Congress has been designed to provide an innovative and comprehensive overview of the latest research in various branches of biomechanics.

I would like to thank everyone who has worked diligently to help in organising this Congress, both from the local organising, and scientific committees at the University of Melbourne and the St. Vincent’s hospital. Despite the long tradition of biomechanical research in Melbourne, the biennial scientific meeting of ANZSB has never been held here. It is with great pride that the University of Melbourne has been selected as the host organisation and location for the 2016 ANZSB / ABC10 meeting. We would also like to share this success with all other Victorian universities having a strong biomechanics and biomedical engineering focus as we believe that ABC10 will provide a unique meeting place for interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary knowledge exchange between colleagues both in Victoria and other states around Australia. In addition to inspiring invited lectures, podium, and poster presentations, the city of Melbourne provides superb cultural and culinary entertainment.

We hope that you will enjoy the Congress and that your interaction with your colleagues from many different states and universities will stimulate a creative exchange of ideas and will be personally rewarding. We also hope and trust that you will enjoy your visit to the very beautiful and exciting city of Melbourne, in December 2016.



Yours sincerely,

Associate Professor Peter Pivonka
Chairman of the Australasian Biomechanics Conference 2016
