Call for Proposals to Host SMBE 2023 - Deadline 30 November 2019

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 2023 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 Marta Wayne by 30 November 2019. Full proposals will need to be submitted using the SMBE template by 30 April 2020. Please email your proposal to Smbe.contact@gmail.com.

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.

SMBE rotates its meetings geographically to encourage international participation. For 2023, we are particularly requesting proposals from North America. The next three years' meetings will be in Quebec, Canada (2020), Auckland, NZ (2021) and Ferrera, Italy (2022).

Please note that SMBE is not interested in proposals from professional conference organizers.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Marta Wayne
President-Elect, SMBE
