The 21st edition of the European BioEnergetics Conference, originally scheduled for 2020, will be held from August 20th to 25th 2022 in Aix-en-Provence, France. Forty years ago the first EBEC conference was organized by Melandri & Melandri in Italy. Since, this biennial conference was held in fifteen European countries and brought together scientists of different scientific horizons from Europe and abroad. Topics ranging from barely understood metabolisms of recently discovered anaerobic microorganisms to mitochondrial diseases, from details on active site mechanism of specific enzymes to regulation of bioenergetic networks find their place here and contribute to the interest of these meetings.

We are pleased to organize the 2022 edition in the city of Aix-en-Provence with its historical center dating back to the roman period and in eye sight of Montagne Sainte-Victoire that inspired Cezanne to his famous paintings. The faculty Schuman is located at the rim of the old city. It has just been renovated and will offer us a convenient, modern environment with several amphitheatres and ample poster space.

We are looking forward meeting you at EBEC2022 and will do our best to make it an interesting and thought-provoking meeting with contributions from all and every one of you!
