Between June 3rd and 7th, the 9th European Congress on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and Engineering (ECCOMAS) took place. Amidst a vibrant ambiance with a view of the sea in Lisbon, Portugal, researchers from across the globe, particularly Europe, shared their research.

It was great to witness recent advancements across various fields, particularly biomechanics, where Prof. Gerhard Holzapfel and Dr. Michele Terzano from Graz University of Technology chaired five sessions on “Microstructure-based Modeling of Biomechanical Systems.” These sessions revealed an impressive evolution in the size and complexity of studied problems, signaling promise for the future of biomechanics.

In one of Holzapfel’s sessions, our BRAINIACS and EBM PhD students Saeed Zarzor and Yashasvi Verma presented their latest findings on human brain modeling with a stimulating discussion with researchers from other universities.
