The Bicycle and Motorcycle Dynamics Conference is held every three years. The first conference was held in Delft, Netherlands in 2010. The aim of this symposium is to bring together leading scientists and researchers in the field of bicycle and motorcycle dynamics and control, in a broad sense.

Topics include but are not limited to: bicycles, motorcycles, unicycles, single track vehicles, modeling, kinematics and dynamics, control, human control, rider properties, handling qualities, tires, experiments, aerodynamics, simulators, nonholonomic dynamics, robot riders, path following.

For an open sharing of information, the meeting is organized to provide as much interaction between participants as possible. The format is informal and fluid, with a single track of presentations and extensive time scheduled for interaction, and the forming and sharing of ideas.

BMD 2022 has been postponed to October 18-20, 2023. The conference will be held in Delft, The Netherlands with Jason K. Moore <j.k.moore@tudelft.nl> as the organizer. See 2023.bmdconf.org for more information.
