Welcome to PBM 8th

On behalf of all the Japanese Plant Biomechanics community and of the International Board, Scientific and Organizing Committees, we are pleased to invite you to Nagoya (Japan) to join in the 8th Plant Biomechanics International Conference (PBM8) that is the first holding in Asia, as well as the 20-year anniversary meeting of PBM conferences. Nagoya is one of the largest city in Japan, close to Japan National Park (Japanese Alps, and Ise-Shima Sea Coast) and historic places (Kyoto, Nara, and Nagoya itself). You will enjoy the interactive overview over the research on plant biomechanics and mechanobiology from all over the world. We are really looking forward to meet you in Nagoya, Japan.
