Abstract submissions from young researchers and master students

We are welcoming submissions from young researchers and master students to the international workshop on “Finite Elements for Cell and Tissue Morphogenesis 2024” to be held at La Villa Clythia, Fréjus, France, from September 9 to 13, 2024.

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers at every career stage in the areas of finite elements and/or mechanobiology, with a specific interest in modelling morphogenesis in animal and plant systems.

During the workshop we aim at discussing the latest advancements, challenges and opportunities in this research field, with the priority of promoting formal and informal exchanges between young and established researchers.

The workshop features presentations by the keynote speakers Marino Arroyo, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, IBEC, BGSMath (Spain) Anja Geitmann, McGill University (Canada) Alain Goriely, University of Oxford (UK) Yongjie Jessica Zhang, Carnegie Mellon University (USA)
