Symposium

I. Cimrak organized a symposium at the ICNAAM 2014 conference with the title "Modelling of Biological Cells, Fluid Flow and Microfluidics". The conference took place in Rhodos, Greece, on 22-28 September 2014. More info about the conference can be found at the ICNAAM 2014 website. The Modelling of Biological Cells, Fluid Flow and Microfluidics Symposium was a part of the conference and the topics included 

  • Blood flow modelling on the level of individual cells
  • Fluid flow modelling of microfluidic devices
  • Cell affinity models
  • Mechanical models for cells
  • Large scale computations of blood flow; parallel and GPU issues
  • Magnetic particles in microfluidics
  • Biological aspects of microfluidics
  • Fluid flow simulation tools

The best presentation of this symposium was awarded by "The Best Presentation of Modelling of Biological Cells, Fluid Flow and Microfluidics Symposium" award.  The best presentation was determined by voting among the audience.

The prize was awarded to Rodney Averett who gave a talk with title Mechanical behavior of Erythrocytes in Diseased States.
