The objective of the workshop is to present and discuss the benefits and problems of combined numerical/experimental methods for the study of wood and possibly also more general to bio-materials (e.g. micro-spectroscopy, mechanical tests in ESEM, full field measurements of deformation, Finite Element simulation and optimization methods). The workshop will provide a forum to communicate current ideas and strategies in this field.

Call for Papers 

Authors are kindly invited to submit an abstract related to the topics of the workshop by February 11, 2011.
