Colleagues -- A good time to be thinking about 
warm days and long nights in central France. 
Please bring this to the attention of interested 
colleagues. Thanks. TB


  Plant BioMech 2012  ( 

   7th Plant BioMechanics International Conference

  August 20 to 24 - 2012 - Clermont-Ferrand, France.

  Call for Papers Submission

Plant Biomechanics and Mechanobiology is an 
expanding interdisciplinary field, at the 
interfaces of biology, mechanics, physics and 
engineering. Over the years, the Plant 
Biomechanics International Conference has become 
the central event of this community, as well as a 
unique place for interdisciplinary exchanges 
around the amazing features that Plants have 
evolved to sense, acclimate and adapt to the 
mechanical challenges they have been submitted to.

  1. Cell Wall, Cell and Tissue Micromechanics.
2. Trees and Wood Biomechanics.
3. Mechano- and Gravi- Sensing
and Transduction.
4. Biophysics of Growth.
5. Biomechanics of Morphogenesis
(and pattern formation).
6. Plant - Fluids Mechanical Interactions
I- external flows.
7.: Plant-Fluids Mechanical Interactions
II internal fluids.
8. Plant- Soil Mechanical Interactions.
9. Plant Motions and Plant Tribology.
10.:Ecological and Evolutionary Biomechanics.
11. Integrative Biomechanical Modelling.
12. Metrology and Software for Plant Biomechanics and Mechanobiology.
13. Plant Biomechanics for Biomimetics.
14. Applied Biomechanics for Material Sciences and Engineering.
15. Miscellaneous = Other topics.
