The Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution is an international organization whose goals are to provide facilities for association and communication among molecular evolutionists and to further the goals of molecular evolution, as well as its practitioners and teachers. In order to accomplish these goals, the Society publishes two peer-reviewed journals, Molecular Biology and Evolution and Genome Biology and Evolution. The Society sponsors an annual meeting, as well as smaller satellite meetings or workshop on important, focused, and timely topics. It also confers honors and awards to students and researchers.

Call for Proposals to host SMBE 2026

SMBE is excited to seek proposals from Europe to host SMBE 2026 as a hybrid meeting. SMBE rotates our meetings geographically to encourage international participation. Our next meetings will be in Mexico (2024) and China (2025). 

Informal expressions of interest should be from a prospective Local Organizing Committee (LOC) of scientists headed by an SMBE member, and should reach SMBE President-Elect Stephen Wright by 15 January 2014. Full proposals will need to be submitted using the SMBE template (see below) by 1 March 2024.

For details of meeting organization, please refer to the SMBE Conference Guidelines at and refer to the Appendix which outlines the format of proposals.

The primary role of the Local Organizing Committee will be to plan the scientific programme, identify a venue and to select and coordinate logistics alongside a local Professional Conference Organiser (PCO). 

Please note that SMBE is not interested in, and will not respond to, proposals from professional conference organizers.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Stephen Wright
President-Elect, SMBE
