Seminar announcement flyer

Our first "Open Your Mind" seminar is scheduled for Friday, October 7 2016 and will take place will take place at Arts et Métiers ParisTech (151 boulevard de l’Hôpital, 75013 Paris) in lecture theatre Fournel between 1:30 pm and 3 pm. For this first conference, a lecture on " Biomechanics for computer-assisted medical interventions" will be given by Yohan PAYAN, CNRS Research Director, head of the Grenoble CAMI team (Computer Assisted Medical Interventions), deputy Director of TIMC-IMAG Laboratory ( and coordinator of the Eccami platform ( We kindly remind M1 and M2 students that attendance at the Seminar is compulsory. We also encourage you to engage in critical thinking and to ask questions during the seminars to make the most of them.


Yohan Payan’s research interests concern the biomechanical modeling of soft tissues in the context of Computer-Assisted Medical Interventions (CAMI). The lecture will introduce the CAMI field while focusing on the main challenges researchers face in the future, i.e. the automatic generation of patient-specific models of organs and the integration of simulation tools into medical devices enabling real-time computations of these models. These challenges will be illustrated in the domains of plastic and maxillofacial surgery, neurosurgery and procedures for the prevention of pressure ulcers (in paraplegic patients and diabetic persons).
