Excerpt from the Editor's preface

The volume Biomaterials in Orthopaedic Practice collects selected papers presented during a workshop BMAT2005 on biomaterials held in May 13-15, 2005 in Warsaw. This workshop was one of the series of events organised within the activity of the Centre of Excellence for Applied Biomedical Modelling and Diagnostics ABIOMED created in 2002 in the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research of Polish Academy of Sciences and supported by the 5th Framework Programme of European Commission and Polish Committee for Scientific Research. The workshop gathered researchers of different specialities among the others engineers, medical doctors, biologists and physicists. Several invited lectures were presented by leading scientists from research institutions in Poland, Europe and from USA.

This volume is devoted to the memory of Professor Józef Joachim Telega who played the leading role in ABIOMED organisation and next acted as the Coordinator of the Centre. His wide scientific interests and exceptional organisational talents determined to big extent the directions of Centre's activities. The idea of the workshop BMAT2005 was inspired by Professor Telega who suddenly passed away on January 2005.
