Upcoming events


PMHA 2016Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

August 26-27, 2016

The 4th International Workshop on Biomechanical and Parametric Modeling of Human Anatomy (PMHA) brings together a multi-disciplinary group of prominent scientific, clinical, and industry-based researchers to share techniques and approaches used to model the anatomy of the human body, as well as to demonstrate the use of biomechanical simulation to investigate biomedical and human factor applications. As a knowledge-sharing opportunity, PMHA provides a platform to identify and to explore new possibilities for inter-disciplinary collaboration with the common objective to better understand the elements and mechanisms that define and shape the dynamics and functions of the human body.


Past events


PMHA 2015Montreal, Quebec, Canada

August 29-30, 2015

The 3rd International Workshop on Biomechanical and Parametric Modeling of Human Anatomy (PMHA) unites a diverse group of outstanding scientific, clinical, and industry-based researchers to share techniques and procedures used to capture and model the anatomy of the human body, as well as to demonstrate the use of biomechanical simulation to investigate biomedical and human factors applications. PMHA presents a unique knowledge-sharing opportunity to discover and explore new opportunities for inter-disciplinary collaboration devoted to better understanding the elements and mechanisms that define and shape the dynamics and functions of the human body.

August 22-23, 2014

The 2nd International Workshop on Biomechanical and Parametric Modeling of Human Anatomy (PMHA) brings together a multi-disciplinary group of prominent scientific, clinical, and industry-based researchers to share techniques and approaches used to model the anatomy of the human body, as well as to demonstrate the use of biomechanical simulation to investigate biomedical and human factor applications. As a knowledge-sharing opportunity, PMHA provides a platform to identify and to explore new possibilities for inter-disciplinary collaboration with the common objective to better understand the elements and mechanisms that define and shape the dynamics and functions of the human body.


PMHA 2013Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

January 28-29, 2013

Many clinicians and researchers around the world are actively engaged in research dealing with the different dynamic functions of the human body. For example, the human oral, pharyngeal and laryngeal complex is a complex biomechanical component of the human body critical for eating, breathing, sleeping and communicating. Furthering our understanding of the dynamics and function of different areas of the human body are critical to diagnosis and treatment of a variety of disorders as well as providing the ground work for understanding how people react and interact with objects in the world. Researchers and clinicians approach modeling the structures and dynamics of the human body from multiple perspectives and techniques. This workshop brings together Computer Scientists, Dentists, Engineers, Linguists, Anatomists, Oro-facial Surgeons and among others to share techniques and approaches to modeling the biomechanics of the human body and applying these models to new biomedical and human factor applications.
