Abstract:

The purpose of the Congress is to assemble the worlds active research workers in the field of biorheology to discuss the most recent advances in this science. In recent years, there is a rapid increase in the number of people working in the field of biomechanics, which has applications to many areas of physiology, medicine, surgery and bioengineering in general. Biorheology occupies a central position in biomechanics, because all biomechanical analysis require information on the rheological properties of the materials involved. For this Congress, a total of 205 papers were presented in 27 sessions. The total number of authors was 350. A total of 308 participants attended the meeting.
