Call for Papers
Submit abstracts by 13 December 2013
Original research papers for oral or poster presentation are invited on the above topics. The topic of research must include a biological surface as part of the interface (e.g. articular cartilage, skin) or have a direct impact on biological function (e.g. prosthetic joints, dental implants).
Biotribology embraces a wide range of research topics from artificial joint implants to hair conditioners and soft-tissue friction. Although this is one of the most exciting areas of research in tribology, until now there has not been a single conference dedicated to all aspects of biotribology.
The inaugural ICoBT was organised at Imperial College in 2011 to bring these diverse interests together in one meeting focused solely on biotribology. Our stated aim of bringing together biotribologists from different scientific and engineering disciplines was more than fulfilled. The enthusiasm and support expressed by fellow biotribologists has prompted us to organise a 2nd ICoBT, which will be held at the Sheraton in Toronto in 2014.
Contributions are welcomed from scientists, engineers and clinicians working in the fields of orthopaedic surgery, dentistry, biomechanics, biomaterials, cosmetic chemistry, biophysics and biomimetics. The topic of research must include a biological surface as part of the interface (e.g. articular cartilage, skin) or have a direct impact on biological function (e.g. prosthetic joints, dental implants).
• Soft tissue interaction: contact lenses; stents; bio-probes
• Articular cartilage: mechanically and biochemically induced damage; modelling; lubrication mechanisms
• Skin tribology and haptics: tactile perception and surface texture; friction
• Personal care: hair conditioners; skin creams; cosmetics; shaving products; toothpaste
• Tongue-palate interaction: food rheology; ’mouth-feel’; food texture
• Prosthetic implants: synovial joint tribology; spinal discs; explant analysis; implant corrosion; materials and coatings
• Dental tribology: tooth and implant wear; fretting
• Biomaterials for tribology: artificial cartilage; meniscus; bio-scaffolds
• Bio-mimetics: bio-inspired tribology; materials; complex fluids; smart rheology
• Biotribology for industry: identifying new opportunities; developing test methods; correlation with customer experience
