International Journal for Computation Vision and Biomechanics
Announcement and First Call for papers





Title: International Journal for Computation Vision and Biomechanics

ISSN: 0973-6778

Subject: Computational Vision and Biomechanics

Frequency: 2 issues per year

Start date: First trimester of 2007



Dear Colleague,


It is a pleasure to announce the new International Journal for Computation Vision and Biomechanics (IJCV&B) and its first call for papers.


Actually the research related with simulation of biomechanical structures has been a source of hard work in several distinct areas of science as, for example, mathematics, mechanical, physics, informatics and medicine.

The numerical simulation applied to living structures is one of the most promising areas of research. However, for its successful, several topics related with geometric modelling, numerical modelling, biomechanics, material models for living tissues, experimental methodologies, mechanobiology, etc., and their application on Clinical Environments must be developed and much more investigation is needed.


The main goal of the International Journal for Computational Vision and Biomechanics consists in the provision of a comprehensive forum for discussion on the current state-of-the-art in these fields.


It is an honour to invite you to submit your work to be published in the International Journal for Computational Vision and Biomechanics. We are sure that your published work in the IJCV&B will soon bring the Journal to a desired standard.


For further details, including Aims & Scope and instructions for manuscripts, the Editors invite you to visit the website of IJCV&B at: www.fe.up.pt/~ijcvb.
