Each year, satellite meetings are held in conjunction with the Society's Annual Meeting on the Friday before the meeting begins. Satellite meetings are organized by individuals, scientific companies, and scientific groups and must conform to established criteria if they are to be associated with the Society’s Annual Meeting. Biophysical Society approval is required for a meeting to be granted satellite status. Meetings selected as satellites will be expected to enhance the Annual Meeting and serve the interests of its attendees.
