Dear SMBE Members:
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 looking for a local host for its 2024 international meeting. Informal expressions of interest should be from a prospective local organizing committee of scientists headed by an SMBE member and should reach SMBE President-Elect James McInerney by 30 March 2021. Full proposals will need to be submitted using the SMBE template by 15 June 2021. Please email your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For details of meeting organization, please see the SMBE Conference Guidelines (and specifically Appendix 2 which outlines the format of proposals).
The primary role of the local organizing committee will be to plan the scientific programme. All other aspects of the organization will be done in association with SMBE representatives and a professional conference organizer appointed by SMBE in consultation with the local organizers.
SMBE rotates its meetings geographically to encourage international participation. For 2024, we are particularly requesting proposals from the Americas. The next three years' meetings will be virtual (2021), in Auckland, NZ (2022), and in Ferrera, Italy (2023).
Please note that SMBE is not interested in proposals from professional conference organizers.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
