Welcome

We would like to cordially invite you to participate in the upcoming 6th European Symposium on Ultrasonic Characterization of Bone (ESUCB 2015) which will be organized at the Ionian Academy of Corfu, Greece, on June 10-12.

The Symposium is a continuation of five previous meetings, initially organized by the French-German network on ultrasound assessment of bone strength from the tissue to the organ level. The European dimension of this symposium is extended for researchers, students and exhibitors from Asia and America.

During the 3-day symposium the cutting edge in ultrasonic assessment will be presented in oral and poster sessions. The meeting addresses the latest advances in basic science (ultrasound propagation models, non-linear acoustics, backscattering, numerical simulations, guided waves), instrumentation and signal analysis (acoustic microscopy, transverse and axial transmission, imaging techniques) and applications (small animals, ultrasonic stimulation, osteoporosis and other diseases).
