SMBE Seeks Proposal to Host 2025 Annual Conference

Want to meet like-minded colleagues from all over the world?

Wish you could have an international conference in your field closer to home?

SMBE is accepting proposals to host its International meeting in 2025. Informal expressions of interest should be from a prospective local organizing committee of scientists headed by an SMBE member and should be emailed to us ASAP. Full proposals will need to be submitted to the Society's Executive Administrator Lulu Stader at Smbe.contact@gmail.com  using the SMBE template by 30 October 2022.

For details of meeting organization, please see the SMBE Conference Guidelines (and specifically Appendix 2 which outlines the format of proposals).

In addition, please include details for a hybrid conference to be held at least partially online and a backup plan in case the meeting cannot be held in person.

Once a location is chosen, the local organizing committee will be responsible for the academic program and the overall conference budget. The Society and the local organizers will hire an international professional conference organizing firm who will work together with the local organizers to secure facilities, develop a website, and advertise the meeting.

SMBE rotates its meetings geographically to encourage international participation. The next two meetings will be in and Ferrera, Italy (2023) and Mexico (2024). For 2025, we are particularly requesting proposals from *outside* Europe and North America.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS - SMBE SATELLITE, INTERDISCIPLINARY AND REGIONAL MEETINGS

Dear SMBE Members,

Each year, SMBE provides funds in aid for SMBE SATELLITE, INTERDISCIPLINARY AND REGIONAL MEETINGS. These meetings are organized and held independent of the SMBE annual meeting.

SMBE is now calling for proposals for meetings and actions to be held between Jan 2023 and Dec 31st 2023. Funds will be awarded on a competitive basis to members of the molecular evolution research community to run workshops/meetings on an important, focused, and timely topic of their choice. The number of awards will depend on the quality of proposals and total cost.

The deadline for submission of proposals is September 30th 2022.
