Scope One of the trends in biomedical implants is towards the use of degradable materials, challenging the paradigm that such devices should essentially remain neutral in the body. Magnesium is especially promising in this respect due to its biochemical as well as to its mechanical attributes. Hence the research and development of magnesium-based biodegradable implants has seen a strongly growing interest over recent years from the scientific and industrial communities. The symposium addresses this emerging multi-disciplinary field as a joint effort of the Biomaterials and Magnesium Committees. Following its initial edition in 2013, the symposium aims to give a topical update on the state-of-affairs. Papers will be presented on all aspects relating to magnesium-based implants including (cardio)-vascular, orthopedic and other applications. This covers – but is not limited to – alloy selection/development and their processing (including associated coating and surface modification), in-vitro/in-vivo performance assessment and evaluation, as well as product design and certification.

Proceedings Plan: Participants will be required to submit a manuscript for inclusion in the Magnesium Technology 2016 proceedings volume. Authors of select manuscripts will be invited to submit their work to JOM.
