The second edition of the international Workshop of Direct Digital Manufacturing for Medicine (DDM4MED) will take place at CDRSP-IPLeiria, Marinha Grande on the 18th of May 2016.
The goal of this workshop is to fill the gap between engineering and medicine regarding direct digital manufacturing, also known as 3D printing. This field covers a set of technologies which allows us to produce complex or simple objects with a specific design. It enables personalisation and customisation, and as such it is particular suited to medical and health care treatment applications where treatment or help is focused on a particular individual.
We know that there is a lot to discuss and we welcome your contributions by posters or flash talks in the three forums available:
1) DDM applications in Surgery;
2) DDM applications in Medicine/Imaging;
3) DDM applications in Health Sciences.
Don’t worry if your idea does not match one of these forums. You will still be very welcome.
