The Bulgarian Society of Biomechanics (BSB) was established by the late Professor Yuli Toshev who served as a president from 1991 up to his untimely death in 2008. In 2011 a new Governing Board was elected and a new registration was done, required under the applicable laws in Bulgaria. Members of the BSB belong to different institutions in Bulgaria, such as Institute of Mechanics, Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, Institute of Neurosurgery, Institute of Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering, National Sports Academy, Biological faculty at the Sofia University, Medical Academy etc. More information about BSB can be found at http://www.imbm.bas.bg/biomechanics/index.php/aims-and-members.
The Governing Board of BSB aims to continue the traditions of the Institute of Mechanics and BSB in organizing local and international conferences like: EuroMech Colloquium No. 68 “Mechanics of Biological Solids”, Varna, 1977; the Franco-Bulgarian Seminar Biomechanics and Computer Science in Cardiology”, Varna,1978; the First International Summer School on Biomechanics”, Varna, 1977; the Sixth International School on Biomechanics held in Blagoevgrad, 1995, “Days of Biomechanics-2011” held in 2011 in Sofia.
On November 20-21, 2014 in Sofia, Bulgaria, BSB is organizing the Second Conference “Days of Biomechanics-2014”. On behalf of the scientific committee, we would like to invite colleagues-researchers (professors, doctors, young scientists and PhD-students) to take part in the conference which topics cover wide range of problems: clinical and tissue engineering; cell and molecular biomechanics; rheology of biological tissues and fluids; transport phenomena in biological systems; mechanics of bioprocess and biofilm systems; computational methods and modeling in biomechanics; biomechanics and control of movement; orthopedic biomechanics; rehabilitation biomechanics; sport biomechanics; biomechanics and sport medicine; functional tissue engineering. Proceedings of the conference will be published inspecial issue of the journal - Series on Biomechanics.
The deadline for one-page abstract submission is October 15th, 2014, at e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. During the conference, the PhD-students and the Young Investigators competition for the Academician G. Brankov award will take place.
