Call for Proposals to host SMBE2015

Dear SMBE Members:

SMBE is accepting proposals to host its International Meeting in 2015. The meeting is usually held in June or July and attracts ~1500 scientists from throughout the world. The Society will accept proposals from any location, but the successful location will need to have a lecture venue of sufficient size to host plenary lectures for all attendees and will also need to be near housing, preferably with a wide variety of options.

Once a location is chosen, the local planning committee will be responsible for the academic program. The Society provides financial support to underwrite the hiring of a professional firm who will help secure facilities, develop a website and advertise the meeting.

This is a unique opportunity to host a premier, international meeting near your institution. If you are interested in hosting or have questions about the meeting, please address your enquires to SMBE President-Elect Brandon Gaut (bgaut@uci.edu) by 1 June 2013.

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.
