Call for Abstracts



On behalf of the Collaborative Research Centre 1270 Electrically Active Implants – ELAINE we cordially invite you to

20-22 March 2024

The 2nd Edition of Progress in Electrically Active Implants (ELAINE) for tissue and functional regeneration will take place on 20th- 22nd March 2024, in the Hanseatic and University City of Rostock, Germany, the home to the oldest university in the Baltic region and one of the oldest universities in the world, the University of Rostock, founded in 1419.

The objectives of ELAINE 2024 are to present and discuss the state-of-the-art experimental and theoretical methodologies involved in developing electrically active implants in bone, brain, and cartilage tissues. The topics include but are not limited to

  • (multiscale) modelling and simulation
  • computational neuroscience      
  • hardware, software, algorithms, code design, machine learning, artificial intelligence
  • scaffold and implant design
  • cellular mechanisms and signalling in electrical stimulation
  • bioengineering
  • electrical conductive and piezo-active materials
  • Deep Brain Stimulation, movement disorders     
  • tissue regeneration and engineering       
  • biophysical stimulation 
  • implant reliability          

We invite researchers, engineers and medical professionals from around the world working in the field of electrically active implants to contribute to this conference.

The program of ELAINE 2024 will comprise several invited plenary lectures as well as oral and poster presentations.

Anika Jonitz-Heincke, Fabiana Santana Kragelund, Fiete Haack, Henrike Rebl, Konstantinos Spiliotis, Marco Stubbe, Mareike Fauser, Nadja Engel, and Revathi Appali
