24th CISM-IUTAM International Summer School on "Plant Biomechanics"

Coordinators :

- Christophe Eloy (IRPHE, Centrale Marseille)

- Yoël Forterre (IUSTI, Aix-Marseille Univ.)

The objective of this CISM International Summer School is to provide an introduction to Plant Biomechanics at all scales, from the cellular and tissue level to the whole plant and ecosystem level.
Lectures will combine concepts from plant biology (anatomy, physiology) and continuum mechanics (elasticity, plasticity, fluid mechanics, rheology, instabilities, modeling). Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the course topic, and, consequently, of the expected audience, a great attention will be paid on introducing biological and mathematical concepts at the basic level first, before going deeper in the description and eventually reach research topics.

The targeted audience for this Summer School will be PhD students, postdoctoral, and young researchers in departments of Physics, Biophysics, Biology, Applied Mathematics, Engineering and Agricultural Sciences.
