Welcome to the 10th Plant Biomechanics Conference

The 10th  International Plant Biomechanics Conference will be held in Lyon, France in August 2022 - from Monday 22nd to Friday 26th.

The conference is organised as a hybrid event. The time schedule will be based on local time to favour in-person participation.



The conference covers all topics related to plant biomechanics, including

  • Ecology and evolution
  • Morphogenesis and pattern formation
  • Cell walls, cells, and tissues
  • Mechanosensing and mechanotransduction
  • Applied biomechanics and biomimetics
  • Woods and trees
  • Hydraulics



The first International Plant Biomechanics Conference was held in 1994 in Montpellier, France, and organized by Bernard Thibaut and colleagues. Since then the conference has been held at three-year intervals. The two most recent ones were held in Nagoya (2015) and in Montreal (2018).
