SMBE 2023 Call for Symposia Proposals - Deadline 31 October -

Dear SMBE Members,
We're delighted to announce that the Society for Molecular Biology & Evolution is now accepting proposals for symposium topics for the 2023 Annual Meeting, taking place in Ferrara, Italy, from July 23rd – 27th, 2023. Selection of proposals will be aimed at spanning the range of interests of SMBE members, including new exciting scientific developments, and representing the geographic and gender diversity of members.
For each accepted symposium we provide financial support up to 5,000 Euros to facilitate symposium organizers in attracting outstanding invited speakers and to contribute to their own travel and lodging expenses. To submit your proposal please click on the link below and follow the instructions. Please complete and submit the form by 11:59pm CET October 31st, 2022. Successful applications will be confirmed by the middle of November. Please email us at smbe2023@unife.it for any questions.
Each symposium will include 2 invited speakers and some contributed speakers. Symposium proposals should include a description of the symposium (250 words max) and the names of the proposed invited speakers capable of delivering a talk of high quality and wide interest. At the time of proposal submission, proposed invited speakers should have agreed to accept the invitation in principle. Please explain to all proposed invited speakers that the invitation is conditional on funding of the proposal. For each proposed invited speaker, please indicate whether they have been approached, whether they have expressed their interest in participating, and the likely topic for their talk. The symposium organizers will also select contributed speakers from the abstracts submitted by registered delegates.
Please visit https://app.oxfordabstracts.com/events/3607/symposia/create – to access the submission portal.
The final decision on the selection of symposia, invited and contributed talks will be made by the Local Organizing Committee (LOC). Criteria will include quality of the proposals, breadth of interest to SMBE membership, and representation of the diversity of SMBE membership among speakers.
The meeting will be held as a hybrid conference, but the speakers (keynote, invited, contributed) are encouraged to participate in person.
More information about the local organizers, the venues, and the structure of the meeting can be found at http://www.smbe.org/smbe/MEETINGS/SMBE2023.aspx.
Best Regards,
SMBE and 2023 LOC
