Instrumentation for experiments in space and microgravity platforms

This conference gives a special focus on  "interdisciplinarity" between Life and Physical Sciences. We would like to encourage presentations in the such fields, for example:

- Cell mechanobiology
- Bone and piezoelectric effect in weightlessness
- Magnetic fields: unloading condition model and biological effects
- Wound healing in unloading conditions, tensile stress and tissue hydration
- Body fluids and fluid dynamics in hypo- and hypergravity
- Central nervous system and electric phenomena in microgravity
- Muscle atrophy and contractile force
- Filtration pressure and renal function in weightlessness
